However, a few of them certainly showed up to the first Chicago Show that took place in 1901. In that year Henry Ford
established the Henry Ford Company (which later became Cadillac
). Two years later he established the Ford Motor Company, who has just unveiled the 2013 Shelby Mustang GT500 convertible in Chicago. There are probably a few differences between the Ford Motor Company then and now, to say the least, but the Chicago Auto Show is still marching on.
