Driving America exhibit shows U.S. history through automobiles
CNET visited the new Driving America exhibit at the Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn, Mich., and took in such sights as a 1909 Ford Model T and the bus where Rosa Parks was arrested for refusing to give up her seat to a white man.
Vehicles play a big part in the last century of United States history, with such icons as the presidential limousine in which John F. Kennedy was assassinated to the bus where Rosa Parks was arrested.
These vehicles and more are on display at a new exhibit from the Henry Ford Museum called Driving America. CNET Australia took a tour of the exhibit just prior to the opening.
Although there are some significant vehicles from Ford in the exhibit, such as the 1962 concept car on which the Mustang was based, vehicles from a wide variety of manufacturers make an appearance. There is even a horse-drawn carriage used by Teddy Roosevelt.
The Henry Ford Museum is located in Dearborn, Michigan.
