Visiting The Henry Ford Greenfield Village

When on vacation in Michigan, in July, I enjoyed visiting The Henry Ford Greenfield Village, in Dearborn, MI. I loved taking a 13 minute ride in a model T that was smooth and quiet, with low RPMs. My Model T driver looked like the 1940s actor and singer, Danny Kaye. He shared some insights about Henry Ford and the Model T, which was manufactured from 1908-1927, with over 15 million produced. Greenfield Village is a very charming place and at the end of the day, you don't want to leave.

My Model T driver, pictured above, said that Henry Ford liked to talk to small-town farmers and businessmen and explain to them how switching from a horse & buggy to a practical automobile will expand and enlarge your familiar world, exponentially. When I finished my Model T ride, I had a full-feeling inside.

Watching and listening to a Model T go by creates a warm feeling inside. (pictured above: a 1917 Ford Model T Woody Wagon)

Two days after visiting Greenfield Village, I saw a 2011 Ford Focus in downtown Saugatuck, MI. After being charmed by the Model Ts, the all new Ford Focus seemed to be charming, as well. I have never been a Ford fan but visiting The Henry Ford Greenfield Village, in Dearborn, MI, kind of gets you into the mood. :-)

Have you ever considered about including a little bit more than just your
articles? I mean, what you say is valuable and everything.
But think of if you added some great photos or videos to give your
posts more, "pop"! Your content is excellent but with images and videos, this blog could definitely
be one of the best in its field. Very good blog!
