..make mention of the fact that he was one the first to implement the assembly line/production line manufacturing techniques that revolutionized many industries.  (There is some debate whether he or Ransom Olds was the actual inventor and first to use it in production.)  There were certainly automobiles before Ford introduced the Model A then the T model, but Ford was the first to actually make it affordable to the common working man.  He kept manufacturing costs low, for instance, by insisting that some suppliers ship parts in plywood boxes of his own dimensions.  He then disassembled the boxes and used them as floorboards and framework for his seats.  Pretty ingenious.  However, mention the good with the bad... It was also commonly known that Ford was an anti-Semite.  Much more common in those times than now, thankfully.

Don't bother - this was spam.  I already flagged the account.
