He told his general superintendent Charles Sorenson That " we are going to get a car now that can make in great volume and get prices way down". Ford and Sorenson invented the Model T and tested it on rough terrain.1908 was the year that ford introduced it to the public. Sorenson said the that the Model T was a sturdy black vehicle and said that " a car which anyone could afford to buy which anyone could drive anywhere, and which almost anyone could keep in repair". This was the start of fords company.
