New Motorcars"Automobiles'"

A new company called "Ford", started by the Ford brothers. They have started mass producing a new and revolutionary mode of transportation. The "Model T" is the new way for many Americans to get from place to place. It will not only prove as a way to transport, but as a fun and comfortable time to spend with your family.

The roads of America have began began to deteriorate due to the use of horse and buggies. The roads needed fixed so many of the state, and national governments began funding a project to rebuild and improve the roads of America. By the end of 1929 almost all of U.S had put a tax of two to five cents on all gas for cars. Many things needed to be changed to accommodate the needs of the new automobile, so we have begun making new road rules, traffic signals, and traffic signs to make driving safer.

Many new models of the Model T are already being produced to make driving safer and more comfortable. Many new companies arrived after Ford and made new and more expansive versions of the model T. Many brands like the Duesenberg and Rolls Royce have begun to sell to richer consumers. Hopefully in the future we will begin to produce a new and better car, but that may take a very long time.
