In 1908, he was 25 years old when Henry Ford developed the first Model T automobile, often called the Tin Lizzy or flivver. Produced from 1908 through 1927, it first sold for $850 - which made it affordable for every middle class family.

After a simple service, Roosevelt was buried on a hillside overlooking Oyster Bay.
