I found my first car at Bob Keim Ford in Columbus, Ohio. It was a 1980, FORD FIESTA, sport model with white exterior, brown fabric interior, sport package, 5 speed, vented windows and an AM radio. It was so fun to drive and had wonderful fuel mileage, even back then. I found out about the safety of my First Ford Fiesta, first hand. I was at a stop light, not realizing someone ahead of me was stopped for a left turn a few cars ahead in my line. Unfortuantely, I had just removed my jacket at a previous stop light and had not re-engaged my safety belt. The paramedic at the scene said it was a good this my car had a ‘newer’ collapsable steering wheel composite or I would have been looking at emergency abdonminal surgery. Even though I broke the windshield with my head, and my right knee took apart the radio knobs, I was in one piece, safe and sound. The steering wheel gave way and I was not hospitalized, scared and sad, but healthy.
My first Ford Fiesta saved my life, was the best car I ever drove and I dream of it still today. Thank you for bringing it back!
Is there anyway I could maybe drive one for Ford and let everyone know how wonderful they are?
PLEASE! I have been out of work for over 5 months, lost my job and car and am trying to find a safe way to get to my potential new employer.
Thanks for bringing Fiesta back and making it ROCK once again!
