One of Henry Ford's early suppliers, Henry Leland, took over from Ford and turned his first company into the maker of cars that came to symbolize the best and the excess of America. At the turn of the century many people were building cars. Most were unreliable toys for the rich – creations meant for short weekend excursions. Leland was convinced there was a better way. He borrowed precision manufacturing techniques from Colt Firearms and applied this knowledge to his cars. Soon the quality soared and his cars earned the title of the “Standard of the World.” It's a legacy Cadillac has been struggling to maintain ever since. EP 110

Around the time Henry Ford was building his first car, so was Ransom Olds, father of the famous American Oldsmobile. License your content worldwide with Janson Media http://www.janson.com But it was Ford who would establish the forty hour working week within his factories and introduce mass production via his moving assembly lines, heralding a new era for industry. The United States embraced the motor car in a big way, and by the mid nineteen sixties, no one walked anywhere anymore. The country that gave us the shopping mall also gave us the parking lot, and drive-through convenience. It seemed like just about anything could be done in a car, from watching movies to dining to traveling long distance, as with the popularity of the motor car came Motor Inns, also called Motels!

John Delorean and a group of rebellious young engineers ignored the corporate edicts about building fast cars and secretly created the Pontiac GTO. They raced against kids at night and took what they learned back to their offices the next day. The result --- the GTO – gave America’s young people a car that really looked good and went fast. It was more than that. The GTO was the culmination of Pontiac's decade long drive to remake its image. After years of sagging sales Pontiac had to perform a miraculous turnaround or GM would drop the division. Its new leadership was animated by one thought -- "You can sell an old man a young man's car but you can't sell a young man an old man's car." The GTO was the clean break from the old and stodgy. It was action, power, beauty and youth -- the perfect vehicle to set young hearts racing.
