Dearborn, Michigan – On Saturday, September 27, a 50-car parade of Ford Model Ts and other historic Ford vehicles motored through the streets of Metro Detroit. The event marked exactly 100 years to the day that production for the Model T began at Ford’s plant on Piquette Avenue.

The Model T went on to become the most influential vehicle of the 20th century, selling more than 15 million copies until it was discontinued in 1927.

Beginning at Ford World Headquarters in Dearborn, the motorcade visited the four locations that became historic landmarks as a result of the car’s success: the Piquette Avenue Plant, the Edsel and Eleanor Ford House, the Henry Ford Estate at Fair Lane, and The Henry Ford museum.
