Henry Ford loved mechanical things: springs and gears and cogs and wheels, things that clicked and ticked and turned. One hot summer day in 1876, Henry and his father were riding to Detroit in the farm wagon when suddenly there was a huffing and puffing monster heading straight toward them. It was a road-roller, and it was lumbering down the road on its own power. That was the day Henry started thinking about horseless riding machines – and he never stopped. In We’ll Race You, Henry, young readers will discover the origins of one of the most popular cars of all time – the Model T – as well as the daring side of its inventor and the early days of automobile racing.
