A common misconception among beginner automobile lovers is that Henry Ford, the esteemed founder of the Ford Motor Company “invented” the automobile. In fact, this is not the case, and when delving into the history of the automotive industry, it can be difficult to pinpoint any one person as having invented the automobile. That said, it is fair to say that Ford revolutionized the industry and contributed to a large chunk of the economy which revolved around the auto industry for decades. His innovation with regard to the assembly line as a manner of stream-lining the production process, certainly changed the game. In combination with the assembly line, his use of interchangeable parts made the production process more efficient, not to mention  much less stressful to car buyers.
