Henry Ford unveils Quadricycle (1896)
-- Henry Ford unveils the Quadricycle, an ethanol-powered proto-automobile, the first automobile he ever designed or drove, on June 4, 1896, at approximately 4 a.m. in the coal shed behind his home on Bagley Avenue in Detroit. It achieved a top speed of 20 mph (32 km/h). So cars evolved from bicycle technology combined with advancements in the internal combustion engine, not from horses and carriages, as people might think. Ford used the success of the Quadricycle to found his motor car company.

Read: Drive! Henry Ford, George Selden, and the Race to Invent the Auto Age
-- Drive! is the most complete account to date of the wild early days of the auto age. Lawrence Goldstone tells the fascinating story of how the internal combustion engine, a theory looking for an application, evolved into an innovation that would change history. Debunking many long-held myths along the way, Drive! shows that the creation of the automobile was not the work of one man, but very much a global effort. Long before anyone had heard of Henry Ford, men with names like Benz, Peugeot, Renault, and Daimler were building and marketing the world's first cars.

His introduction of the Model T automobile revolutionized transportation and American industry. He is credited with Fordism - mass production of inexpensive goods coupled with high wages for workers. In 1891, Ford became an engineer with the Edison Illuminating Company. After his promotion to Chief Engineer in 1893, he had enough time and money to devote attention to his personal experiments on gasoline engines. These experiments culminated with the completion of a self-propelled vehicle which he named the Ford Quadricycle. He test-drove it on June 4, 1896.
