Ep. 20: Ford sells the first Model A

Season 4, Ep. 20

We're pretty much exactly in the middle of the 2023 Formula 1 season, so it's perfect timing that on This Week in Tech History Abbey and Chris get down to business and talk about the very first Model A to roll off the lot. While other Ford models were perhaps more influential for the things they ultimately contributed to the automotive industry, this was the car that started it all with a whopping 8 horsepower and a top speed of 30MPH. We'd love to see Verstappen and Hamilton duke it out around the course in these bad boys.
