The National Automobile Show in New York has been one of the top auto shows in the
United States since 1900. On November 3 of that year, about 8,000 people looked over the
"horseless carriages." It was the opening day and the first opportunity for the automobile industry
to show off its wares to a large crowd; however, the black-tie audience treated the occasion more
as a social affair than as a sales extravaganza. It was also on the first day of this show that William
McKinley became the first U.S. president to ride in a car.
The automobile was not invented in the United States. That distinction belongs to Germany.
Nikolaus Otto built the first practical internal-combustion engine there in 1876. Then, German
engineer Karl Benz built what are regarded as the first modern automobiles in the mid-1880s. But
the United States pioneered the merchandising of the automobile. The auto show proved to be an
effective means of getting the public excited about automotive products.
By happenstance, the number of people at the first New York show equaled the entire car
population of the United States at that time. In 1900,10 million bicycles and an unknown number
of horse-drawn carriages provided the prime means of personal transportation. Only about 4,000
cars were assembled in the United States in 1900, and only a quarter of those were gasoline
powered. The rest ran on steam or electricity.
After viewing the cars made by forty car makers, the show's audience favored electric cars
because they were quiet. The risk of a boiler explosion turned people away from steamers, and the
gasoline-powered cars produced smelly fumes. The Duryea Motor Wagon Company, which
launched the American auto industry in 1895, offered a fragrant additive designed to mask the
smells of the naphtha that it burned. Many of the 1900 models were cumbersome—the Gasmobile,
the Franklin, and the Orient, for example, steered with a tiller like a boat instead of with a steering
wheel. None of them was equipped with an automatic starter.
These early model cars were practically handmade and were not very dependable. They
were basically toys of the well-to-do. In fact, Woodrow Wilson, then a professor at Princeton
University and later President of the United States, predicted that automobiles would cause conflict
between the wealthy and the poor. However, among the exhibitors at the 1900 show was a young
engineer named Henry Ford. But before the end of the decade, he would revolutionize the
automobile industry with his Model T Ford. The Model T, first produced in 1909, featured a
standardized design and a streamlined method of production—the assembly line. Its lower costs
made it available to the mass market.
Cars at the 1900 show ranged in price from $1,000 to $1,500, or roughly $14,000 to
$21,000 in today's prices. By 1913, the Model T was selling for less than $300, and soon the price
would drop even further. "I will build cars for the multitudes," Ford said, and he kept his promise.
Question 41. The passage implies that the audience viewed the 1900 National Automobile Show
primarily as a(n)________
A. chance to buy automobiles at low prices.
B. formal social occasion.
C. chance to invest in one of thirty-two automobile manufacturers.
D. opportunity to learn how to drive.

A. William McKinley B. Nikolaus Otto
C. Henry Ford
D. Karl Benz
