As one would expect, the requisite Model A and Model T are on display. But the one that catches my interest most is this exploded Model T that hangs near the museum’s front entrance. Henry Ford famously revolutionized automotive production by implementing the assembly line, and my father worked on one for 30 years. I therefore caught myself staring at this for ages as I examined the parts involved while contemplating the individual histories of the many people whose hands might have touched them over a century ago.
