How about this for a new car deal a hundred years ago

How about a deal like this. Ford made a promise to car buyers in the previous year.. 1914... to give them $40 to $60 back if they sold enough cars. They sold more than enough so they will give back about ten percent of the purchase price as "profit sharing". Go buy yourself a $30,000 for now days vehicle and see if you might get back $3000 a year from now.... profit sharing.

No wonder Ford sold so many cars back then. What a deal. :shock:

Sure.. people bitched about having to pay extra for a speedometer.. but how fast could these cars go anyway? And.. cops didn't have radar guns back then anyway.
