    Not as many advances as we’d like, unfortunately…

    Could run on alcohol. The Model A could at least.

    There was no 1908 Model T. It came out in late ’08 as a 1909 model.

    Also, the Model T got just as good gas mileage as today’s cars.

    It’s not the same thing at all. If Henry Ford had had to deal with the regulation on fuel production (try California, for instance) we’d still be using horse-and-buggies.

    I was in the Rockefeller Carriage house last week and there is a 1908 Electric car that John D Rockefeller drove to Tarrytown Station to pick up guests.

    So you really think it’s regulations that have prevented the advancement in automotive technology? Hmmm….. How interesting…

    Actually, a lot of the early cars ran on ethanol, until the grain was needed as food during WWI. Mileage didn’t improve until fuel was in short supply during WWII, but once the war was over, Detroit began churning out “land yachts” with ghastly mileage.

    @AshburnStadium

    Yeah, 13 mpg at 40 mph. Which was it’s top speed.

    @Stan King

    And maybe that would be a good thing!

    If we were more advanced, it could run on wind, like ancient ships, or on solar, like reptiles.

    Ford actually was looking at use of hemp (not weed) based ethanol. The man was very much ahead of his time.

    What about steam? (all right, the occasional explosion, but surely we can fix that)
