MAN & THE AUTOMOBILE. A Twentieth-Century Love Affair
Graham Robson, technical author,
with foreword by Henry Ford II
The long and continuing relationship between man and the automobile has now become so much a part of our lives that it is perhaps now more akin to a marriage than a love affaire. The story of the motor car in the US began in 1883 when the Duryea brothers built the first successull petrol - powered vehicle. FMC was founded just a few years later, in 1903.
The motor car has its devotees and its critics, and manufacturers are facing the most crucial challenge. The demands on their resources, their technology and the ingenuity have neer been greater and ocassionally, in the heat of the commercial battle.
