Seems like it was a Ford commercial where the grandson ( maybe a great grandson) talked about Henry Ford, Thomas Edison and "whoever was president at the time" would all get in the new cars and go camping.The first SUV"s. He mentioned that this was during a time when most people rarely traveled more than 20 miles from home.

Hello Stan,

Henry David Thoreau abhored the trains! He felt that humans should not be subjected to traveling at such high speeds. Trains in those days ran at about 35 miles per hour.

I actually think that it was for FORD..... something about SUV's and the model T being the first SUV.... It lost me after the history part stopped and the commercial part started.
