Model T Top Car




LAS VEGAS -- The Ford Model T, the car that put the world on wheels, was voted the "Car of the Century" by an international jury of 133 automotive journalists late Saturday, beating the Mini and the Beetle among others.


The Model T beat the other finalists with a tally of 742 points, compared with 617 for the British Mini, 567 for the Citroen DS 19, 521 for the Volkswagen Beetle and 303 for the Porsche 911.


From an original list of 200 cars, the journalists from 33 countries pared the number to a final five before voting for the winner.


Henry Ford, the father of the Model T, was named entrepreneur of the century.
