This program examines America's love affair with the automobile that began during the first few decades of the 20th century. Between 1918 and 1941, people began slowly depending on their cars to meet more and more of their transportation needs. Once World War I ended, car manufacturers fiercely competed with each other to lure new customers by creating cars with sleek lines and stylish features. The program shows that while many Americans were able to purchase the relatively inexpensive Model T, far fewer could afford the pricey Duesenberg, Cadillac, Lincoln, or Packard, all of which competed for the money being spent by America's wealthiest drivers. The video also examines the new car features that were developed for safety reasons.
