Motor Vehicle History
 
Contrary to some misconceptions Henry Ford did not invent the car, neither did Karl Benz.
They both made improvements but the history goes further back.

The power sources were steam, electric and petroleum, with a lot of additional pushing/pulling/cursing.

Steam was the favorite by a little over electric but way more than petroleum until the Ford Model T and
big leaps in refining and distribution around 1910.
