Old Henry had a real mean streak in him.....people like that live longer it seems.That being said,I prefer old Ford trucks vs equivalent GMs...just saying.

Henry lived 21 years longer than Louis.
Unlike Mr. Ford, Mr. Chevrolet was always up late at night designing quality, innovative automobiles. Must have affected his health.

Louis Chevrolet probably drank too much French Bubbly and passed over from a bad liver. Ed

Probably so....every time Henry made a bad move, Louis would celebrate with a toast of that French Bubbly! I bet he had it shipped in by the box car!

This helps explain why my Ford's keep running decade after decade. I have to give them away to justify the purchase of new ones. My oldest one, a '98 F150 is nearing 360K miles.

Heh heh Louis Chevrolet was a racing car driver. He sold his name to Durant or Leland of GM. Sorta like Carlo Rossi and Gallo grin2

Right, Chevrolet had little to do with the cars actually made. It was Durant's show. GM bought the name.
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B074V454WS?tag=moviefone-20 is a good documentary on what happened back then.
Dodge Brothers were real designers & engineers who died too early due to the worldwide Spanish Flu in 1920.

Never understood the whole Chevy vs Ford thing. I nowadays prefer the F150's but was still impressed with a Silverado I rented minus the cheap interior. Id be happy with either smile

We toured the automotive hall of fame up in Dearborn last month. Pretty interesting on how it's all strung together.

As much as I like Ford Motor Company, he (Henry) is given credit where none is due really. The assembly line for example. He had actually nothing to do with the idea.

I really dislike how he treated his son Edsel, but that's another story. There may also be more to the story. Who knows.
