Making the Model T

The $950 Model T price he mentions would be $22,401 in 2009 dollars. Today, MSRP for a Ford Fiesta is $13,300 - with an electric starter, air bags and a wide selection of colors. But of course it won't handle bad roads as well as a Model T.

The $5 daily wage would be an daily wage of $118 in 2009 dollars - or an annual wage of $29,500. I think most auto workers are doing better than that today (the ones still working, that is).
