Default Neat old film from the Ford Archives

This has probably been posted before, but it's the first time I came across it:

A short 38 minute documentary, "The American Road", which makes extensive use of film footage from the Ford Archives. It mostly covers through the Model T era, but I thought folks here might enjoy it if they haven't already seen it.

Neat old film. When Ol' Henry was first seen with his quadracycle they kind of insinuated that his was the first, which it wasn't. Good film anyway.

I posted two stillframes from the movie on my original post (I assume you clicked on those), as well as a link to the full video - click on the words "The American Road" to see it on youtube.
