VeteransVeterans Share Memories of Leaving for War from Michigan Central Station
Upon its opening in 1914, Michigan Central Station handled growing passenger traffic in and out of a booming Detroit. The colossal structure in the city's Corktown neighborhood welcomed waves of immigrants coming to Detroit to start new lives and take jobs in a burgeoning auto industry. Over the years, the iconic station became a gateway of another kind. Beginning with America's entry in the first World War in 1917, young men leaving for basic training after their military inductions became a common scene at Michigan Central Station. This continued over the decades as people departed to fight in World War II, Korean and Vietnam.

Ford Plans to Turn Self-Driving Cars into a Real Business
(Quartz) Ford has stated it plans to have self-driving cars on the road in some commercial capacity by 2021, and has been building out a testing facility in Miami for the last nine months. It now operates dozens of autonomous test vehicles in the city. At an event Wednesday in Florida's biggest city, Ford gave journalists an early look at how it believes its autonomous vehicle service might operate, and what the average rider might be in store for in just a few short years, assuming all goes according to plan.

Ford Keeps It Simple, Moving to 25 Mirrors Instead of 139 for Just One Model
(Forbes) As part of a comprehensive “fitness redesign,†Ford Motor Company is embracing simplicity as a virtue. For example, standardizing content and colors on the 2020 Ford Explorer means the company could delete more than 100 possible variations of exterior mirrors compared with the 2018 model, according to a Ford presentation Wednesday at the Barclays Global Automotive Conference in New York.

Model T Emerges from California Fire with Barely a Scratch
(The New York Times) Ron Westbrook's house is gone, the burned hull of a washer visible in the rubble, and a mangled satellite dish, too. In his collapsed garage, two cars, including a beloved 1941 Plymouth, are no more than blackened shells. But at the end of Westbrook's driveway, in the shade of charred pines, a 103-year-old Ford Model T somehow escaped with only minor paint damage, standing out like a museum piece in a vast landscape of destruction.
