"Henry Ford, taking some of his own medicine by driving to his country place in a Model T, encountered another Ford stalled on the side of the road. The man seemed to be in distress, and Mr. Ford quickly jumped out and offered his services. When the trouble had been located and corrected, the owner of the machine tendered Mr. Ford a dollar in grateful acknowledgement of his help.

Of course, Mr. Ford refused and when the man insisted he sought to shut him off by telling him that he already had more money than he could use. This was incredible to the other Ford owner, who tartly replied, "Oh, come now, if you really have so much money, you certainly wouldn't be driving one of these Tin Lizzies."

It's so funny how things never change, people often judge a book by its cover😉

Henry, in spite of his amassed fortune and social standing, remained somewhat
tied to his grassroots beginnings. His basic principles propelled him to a place of
being one of the world's biggest tycoons, yet he never lost sight of his principles.
A concept not shared by most today.
