Henry Ford was considered a genious by many.   When he needed lumber he grew his own, rubber?  He bought a plantation.  He wanted FOMOCO to be self sufficient and dependant on no one.

Today that's really not true of any carmaker.  They get parts from all over the world.

Now some of the plastics used on Ford engines are sourced from old carpet.  I guess you can vacuum clean under the hood now.
