About the Ford Motor Company, about to turn 120 years old, it’s not much to say that it changed the course of the 20th century. Kristjan Sooper, a long-time car journalist, tells how this was done in detail in the car show “Autojutud” of Äripää radio.

We are, of course, talking about the self-propelled conveyor line that started rumbling at the Ford factory in 1913, thanks to which the price of the car fell within the reach of the middle class and businesses. However, the conveyor method was probably used much more widely than only in the automotive industry.

The impact of the revolution born from the assembly line can even be compared to that of the advent of the Internet, Kristjan Sooper found in the program.

A lot of other things were discussed in the program dedicated to Ford. For example, the Ford Sierra, which became a cult car in Estonia in the 90s. Together with the host Karl-Eduard Salumäe, we discuss why. At the same time, the question is asked why Ford is not even close to popular here today. By the way, Sooper has been considering the Sierra as a hobby car for years.
