Well yes they did sort of standardise cars with accelerator, brake, clutch) after the model T. Of course I suspect you, given the way you worded your comment (but not everyone here) will know that the model T pre-dated this with the middle peddle engaging reverse. Of course automatic transmission changed the "standard" layout in a very significant way, and some people like it though others prefer the more conventional way of driving. This will change again with self driving cars, and people are going to bitch about that too. Will a self driving car be an improvement on a model T?
