Did you know?

Did you know in 1909 Henry Ford introduced the Tin Lizzie? The National Pike was in horrible conditions for automobiles. The early tourists got dressed in linen dusters and goggles and took a lot of punishment. They had to carry spare gas in tin cans. They also had to light their headlights with a match, patch their own tires and when they got stuck in the mud they had to hire a farmer to pull them out.
