The Fire

My mother worked as a maid at Stanford university. She would always find something fun for use to play with. I was 5 and my brother was 3. One day when she got home, she had nothing in her hands for us. We decided mom had left it for us in the car. It was a 2 door. We looked inside the front and found nothing. We crawled over the seat to the back. There on the floor was a grocery bag full of book matches. We figured they were ours. While playing with them I lite a book and up it went. The whole bag. I got out and found a glass. Running back and forth to the faucet, I tried to put it out. My little brother still in the back seat. Fortunately my mom saw what was happening and ran out and pulled him. out. The fire dept. quickly arrived to put it out. Mom had the car repaired. She had it for another 3 years.

Where It All Began...

Your Ideas
Camping, Hiking, Hunting, Tailgaters and enjoying nature is very common.  With the advancement of the MyFordTouch interface with media playback and Fords leadership in technology; Ford should develope a built-in projector that will pop up on the roof of the vehicle.  The projector will funtion the same as found in movie theathers.  A portable projector screen will be included in vehicles that are equipped with this feature.  Having a camp fire and telling stories are always one of the most valueable moments.  With a projector and project screen outside in the night while camping and telling stories, this feature will make the moments even more valuable and fun by including slide shows of pictures or even videos of those moments.  Most Ford owners love their vehicle soo much, with this feature, it would make for a very interesting experience with the connection of the vehicle as well as enjoying each other just that much more out in nature.  This feature is something that can be enjoyed outside of the vehicle so that one can full enjoy the pleasure of their hard earned money to the fullest without always having to enjoy the vehicle while inside of it.
