Old English is a lot more different from modern English than Middle English is, but not incomprehensible imo.

What Ford did do was improve the processes for making automobiles to such a huge degree that they became affordable to the average American. Between 1909 and 1925 the inflation-adjusted cost of the Model T fell by more than 80%. By 1929, the vast majority of American families owned a car, and 79% of the world's automobiles were located in the United States.
