Quoting The Dublin Daly: "Brave New World is set in 632 AF - After Ford and the cross in the churches has been reducedto a T (Model T) after loping off the top of the cross.

Thin Lizzie get their name from Tin Lizzie which was a nickname for the flimsy model Ts."

Cracked by Dublin Daly and prasun.

Brave New World refers to Henry Ford as a messiah and the phrase Lord has been replaced by Ford throughout the book. The calendar counts years "After Ford" (AF), a parody of "Anno Domini" (AD), starting at 1908 when the Ford Model T was created. This year marks the 100th anniversary of the T model. The second pic is not very clear but I'm assuming that it has something to do with the T model.

Ford Model T. A bit convoluted connect, but the centenary hint helped!
