Bloomberg Pursuits' Hannah Elliott took a 1914 Model T for test drive. It has three pedals, but none of them are for accelerating.
Starting in 1908, Henry Ford sold his novel Model T cars as the first to be really accessible to the masses. What's more, he marketed them as easy to handle for casual drivers and (gasp!) women since they started with a button rather than a crank. Thing is, those old Model Ts were still pretty complicated to drive.
