Last week in Detroit, Edward James Olmos (and "Dancing with the Stars" alumna Niecy Nash) co-hosted the 17th annual Urban Wheels Awards, which honor women in the automotive industry.
The Detroit Free Press quoted Mr. Olmos from the ceremony: "If it weren't for women, the American auto industry wouldn't exist. Who do you think told Henry Ford to go outside and build a car in the first place? Mrs. Ford."
