    Thanks for the heads up. Looks like a three-part series along with a couple "Extended" versions this weekend according to the guide. Unfortunately, I missed Part 1 last week but I recorded Part 2 around midnight last night and Part 3 is next week.

    I'm sure it will be repeated. Tonight starts with the conversion to war production.

    Good series but puzzled since they did not cover trucks being the best selling vehicle in the country. Henry Ford was a real jerk.

    I haven't watched anything yet but I remember one byproduct of Ford's production line was charcoal briquettes.

    They also made the Ford Tri-Motor airplane from 1925 to 1933.

    Are you not (ain't) you glad that Ford did't continue manufacturing Airplanes, wouldn't be Mustangs, Shelby GTs or the F-40 the 24 HRS Le Man winning super car.
