This is the best book that I know of that documents accurately the business and production environment that Ford successfully competed in, and the competitors that he faced. It documents the success of the Dodge Brothers, who were making good money supplying Oldsmobile CDO chassis at the beginning of the book and were part owners of Ford Motor company at the end. It also documents the failure of Oldsmobile (and to some extent, Buick) to grasp that they had the right formula in 1903 but squandered their success by moving to big expensive cars.

Highly recommended!!!!!

Thanks, Royce, for the kind words! The book has gotten some other nice reviews, too, but hearing yours -- you as a T expert -- means so much. Other MTFCA folks who are interested can learn about CAR CRAZY at www.CarCrazyBook.com Just today, it hit No. 1 in Amazon's new release, transportation industry. AND -- we will have a 1912 T Speedster, among other old cars (in attached collage), at the book launch party Sunday 11/1 in Newport, RI. All welcome (write carcrazybook@gmail.com for details)!Cars at Newport launch party

Thanks, everyone! I will be heading to Detroit in January for the North American International Auto Show and talks and signings, so perhaps we will meet then. Enjoy the book. Check another post of mine for a way to get a signed copy, if you'd like (or just write me directly at pascoagwriter@yahoo.com) Cheers, Wayne

Wayne, I see that the North American International Show in Detroit runs through January 24th.

Just a thought, but have you considered also the MTFCI Annual Meeting in Dearborn on January 28th to 30?

Keith
