If for some reason you happen to be in town to sightsee, a neat place to visit is this beautiful old brick building in Detroit.

This was the home of Ford from 1904-1910, the Model T was designed here, and likely the idea for the moving assembly line happened here as well, as demand quickly outpaced the factory’s capacity.

The wood floors are still soaked with 100+ year old oil, the elevators used to move cars from level to level still work, and the fire doors are still there.

They have a great collection of Model Ts of all years and configurations, including some pretty neat things, plus some Model As and beyond as well - they also had a Ford GT (2005) prototype and bare chassis there when I stopped in.

Oh, and they also do weddings there - some good friends of mine got married there a few years ago, amongst the history. How cool is that?
