Starting in 1908, Henry Ford sold his novel Model T cars as the first to be really accessible to the masses.
What’s more, he marketed them as easy to handle for casual drivers and (gasp!) women since they started with a button rather than a crank.
Thing is, those old Model Ts were still pretty complicated to drive. Bloomberg Pursuits’ Hannah Elliott took a 1914 Model T for a spin but first she needed a driving lesson.
