The Human Bridge

This one is a long time favorite of mine. It’s a Ford promotional film focused on the concept of the new for 1949 Ford. Everything about it is just down right dreamy – the narration, the imagery, and the very idea of selling cars through glorifying the process of concepting. Simply glorious.

Willow Run Airport

It’s been widely documented that Henry Ford opposed America’s entry into World War II. Some folks claim that the reasoning behind Ford’s decision was simply because he was a pacifist. Others believe the notion that Ford had darker beliefs and had aligned himself more with the Axis train of thought. Personally, I’ve always felt that actions speak louder than words… and no one can question Ford Motor Company’s contribution to the American War Machine.

The Places We Go

One of the best features of the NEW Ford Barn is the image galleries users are able to post. We are just now starting to reap the benefits of these, but one in particular really blew my skirt up. A user by the name of HoarseWhisperer likes to get his a-roadster out and about… and, in doing so, he seems take a lot of pictures. One of his galleries is dedicated just to photos of the places he’s been in the roadster.

Check it out. You’ll be glad ya did!

The Funeral Of Henry Ford: Part II

At first glance, theses photos of Henry’s open casket seem a bit morbid… And maybe they are, but they are history as well and I feel compelled to share them.

The Funeral Of Henry Ford

Here’s something you don’t see every day… The funeral of Henry Ford in a motion picture format. Most of you fellas know the story of Henry’s death. Put simply and frankly, he died of old age… gracefully. However, many don’t know the circumstances. The night before Henry died, there were torrential downfalls in the Michigan area. The River Rouge overflowed which, in turn, flooded the local power station. Henry’s power went out in his home and he and his wife went to sleep by candle light.
