Excerpt from passage

What kind of car does your family have? Ford is one company that makes cars and trucks. A man named Henry Ford started this company. Henry was born July 30, 111863 in Wayne County, Michigan. He lived on a farm and helped his father with the farm work when he came home from school each day.

 

He really hated working on a farm and when he was 16, he walked to Detroit to see if he could get a job. When he was a boy he was always making things and even came up with ideas to make work on the farm a lot easier. He decided to try at a machine shop and he was hired as an apprentice. He worked making machinery and he learned ho the natural combustion engine worked.

 

After a few years, he decided to return to the farm and work part time for the Westinghouse Engine Company. He also set up his own shop on the farm where he fixed farm machines and engines that were broken.
