The Ford Piquette Plant was built in 1904 and is the birthplace of the Model T car. Everyone found it interesting to learn that in the early days of the plant the cars were assembled in a stationary position by hand, and you could buy them in red, blue, and green. It wasn't until the process became mechanized, and they moved production to the Highland Park plant in 1910, that the cars only became available in black. They changed to black because it dried faster and was a better fit with the moving assembly line. (Thank you to Bill Richards for the brief history of the plant.)
We hope you enjoy these pictures from their outing and consider joining them next month. They never fail to do something interesting and have fun. Thank you to Gayle Bellamy, Nancy McFall and Bill Richards for the pictures.
