An informal quiz to test our knowledge of the more trivial matters relating to Ford - the people, the cars, the manufacturing and the culture.
If you have a snippet of Ford trivia, ask the question here for a bit of fun.
I'll kick off with:
In 1941, how did Henry Ford demonstrate the strength of the panels on Ford's prototype plastic-panelled car?
And what were two of the ingredients in the plastic the panels were made from?
ok, im pretty sure he used an axe to demonstrate the strength...for those that are wondering - it bounced off!
it was made from flax, wheat, hemp, spruce pulp. Henry reckoned that it was possible to "grow cars from the ground" or something along those lines.
what a legend!
