Exciting Developments in the World of

Mobility History (Part 1 of 2)

The morning session will deal with exciting occurrences of 100

years ago, namely, the state of the industry, the birth of the Model

T Ford and the birth of General Motors. The afternoon session will

deal with the history of engine development, especially how fuel

economy regulations impacted engine design and prompted the

development of hybrid powertrains and how customer desires for

better vehicle performance lead to the development of the Chrysler

¿hemi¿ engine.
