Henry Ford's Quadricycle

Henry Ford's first exploration into automobiles came when he tinkered with the prototype of the "Quadricycle" in the garage of his home located on Bagley Avenue. In 1896, Ford took his Quadricycle for a spin on the street of Detroit as people passing by stared at this new machine.
