Who is this invented for?

The Automobile was invented for the everyday person to get from point A to point B without the use of a bicycle or a horse and carriage.


“When Henry Ford decided to produce his famous V-8 motor, he chose to build an engine with the entire eight cylinders cast in one block, and instructed his engineers to produce a design for the engine. The design was placed on paper, but the engineers agreed, to a man, that it was simply impossible to cast an eight-cylinder engine-block in one piece.

Ford replied,''Produce it anyway.”
Henry Ford
