Finally Forgiven

JoAnn (my dear wife of 46 years) had a new Ford Falcon Futura Convertible in 1963. We dated for about 9 months, had lot’s of fun running around in the Falcon. We were married in November 1963. Well, after a kid or two ol’ dad trades the Falcon in on a practical, 4-door family sedan. Well, would you believe JoAnn never forgave me. About 2000 we were living in Lee’s Summit, MO, near Kansas City. I found a “like new” 1963 Ford Falcon Futura (looks just like her original) in a local classic car place and “snuck” it into the garage and surprised her with it Christmas Eve. Needless to say I was “Finally Forgiven” (after 36 years)! This car was well taken care of, never restored tho newly painted and new interior. Still a daily driver today!

Linda I have owned Fords since I bought my first car. My first car was a used 1968 avocado green 289 Ford Mustang coupe. Gorgeous and so much FUN, FUN, FUN. Built very tough too! Bought it used and sold it for double what I paid for it. Next bought a used 1985 Ford mustang hatchback with the words Mustang on the lower both sides of the car with stripes coming out either side. Very cool, fun, wonderful car. Then purchased a GT Escort Sport used. Absolutely great little car and great gas mileage and air condtioning!. Then purchased a ZX2 Escort (sporty) used. Wonderful, wonderful car. Now have a SES 2005 Ford Taurus with 6 cd rack in the console and all leather interior. Love it! As you can see all my cars have been Fords and I have loved each and every one of them like a family member. They all gave me outstanding service and are/were a real pleasure to drive. Thank you FORD Motor Company ! Keep up the outstanding job ! AND Ford didn't need any stimulus money !

Bill I'm all about America and Ford. Haven't purchased a Ford, until recently, since my 66 Mustang. Bought the brand new Fusion and absolutely love it. Customer service and product second to none. I also have a BMW and recently put a bumper sticker on it that says, "My other car is a FORD". I'm proud to be driving a Ford, have you driven a ford lately...
