Henry Ford was an innovator par excellence who transformed the auto-mobile industry and ensured that vehicles are affordable even to the common man. It was because of his keen knowledge of engineering and an impeccable wit that he earned the respect and admiration of his peers as well as employees. Here’s one instance where his funny retort made the news. The research and development team at ‘Ford’ studied other cars in the market in order to understand their features better. It was one of the main reasons that they were able to make cars that were world class. They would buy a car and study its functioning in detail after a putting it through a test drive. Once Henry Ford decided to test one of the cars by Lanchester and took it for a drive from the Long Island Factory of ‘Ford’ to Detroit. When the paparazzi caught wind of Henry’s journey, they asked him why he wasn't driving the ‘Ford’. To which the auto-mobile engineer replied, “Well, you see, it is this way, I am on a vacation now; I am in no hurry, we do not care much when we get home. That is the reason I am not in the Ford.” A quintessential orator Henry Ford has some of the best advices on matters ranging from problem solving to importance of making mistakes and even reincarnation.
