Today in history

On this day in 1915, the one millionth Ford car — a Model T — rolled off the assembly line at the River Rouge plant in Detroit.

Between 1908 and 1927, Ford sold more than 15 million Model Ts in all; they cost $850 at first (about $20,000 in today's dollars) but by the end of their run, Ford had managed to reduce the price to just $300 (about $3700 today).

Here’s the rest of the story:


Today — Enjoy while it lasts...partly cloudy in the morning then becoming mostly sunny. Highs in the mid 60s to lower 70s.

Tonight — Mostly clear. Lows in the lower to mid 30s. West winds 10 to 20 mph after midnight.
