June 4, 1896: Henry Ford tests the Quadricycle

1896 Henry Ford gets ready to test drive the first Quadricycle (a.k.a. Car). Only one problem – They didn’t make the garage door big enough. Out comes the Ax – A couple chops and a wider door was created. The car ran 2 speed, but could not go in reverse.

It’s all in the book – the ford century
