My First Ford

50 years old today…but back in the good old days I was the young age of 18 years old…just married and moved out of my hometown of Carp Lake, MI with my new husband to his hometown of Cleveland, OH. We came home to Carp Lake, MI every weekend in our 1978 Ford Fiesta! That car didn’t have a lot of buttons or screens on the dash…but the important thing about this car to us was it brought us home every weekend to our family and friends…rain, sleet, snow or hail it got us home sweet home…I would love to own another someday…or win one!!! The car holds many sweet memories for me…one thing I love about the new models…the colors are much better!!! Thanks for the memories Ford…your #1 for a REASON!

Your Ideas
First I really love my 2012 Ford Fiesta sse Turbo, everything I could want with options and more.  Just one problem I am big guy and wear a size 13 shoe. The brake pedal and gas pedal are so close to each other I have to constanly make sure not to hit both of them at the same time.  Of course I have done this more than a couple of times.  Wish there was a solution to this problem or just have a brake pedal be able to be adjusted to the left for guys like me.  Just a thought and if anyone has a fix let me know.  But Ford has done great with the Fiesta and I love my car and very for first time in a long while.
