There has always been a Ford in my family. Before I was born, it was an ’84 Ranger. Right after I was born, it was an ’86 Bronco. Then throughout the years we had an Escort, Taurus, F-150, and Explorer. I guess you can say that the Ford brand and their commitment to safety has been instilled into me throughout my entire life. So it was only fitting for me to drive a Ford. I originally bought an ’03 Focus ZX3, but decided it was too small and purchased a brand new ’07 Fusion shortly after. The Fusion has drawn more attention than I could ever imagine. People would look at it and say “Wow, that’s a Ford?” “Wait, Ford makes this car?” “I didn’t know Ford made cars that looked like that.” I automatically felt like a member of the Ford marketing team and I was happy to let people drive my car and see the look of shock and surprise on their face. The way it drove, the quality, and the design surprised everyone who has sat behind the wheel of my car. And before I knew it, 3 people I knew purchased new Fusions after me.
Ford is more than just a brand or car company. They have created a community of Ford drivers who share the same passion about vehicles, whether it’s performance, safety, or innovation. Fellow Ford owners will know exactly what I’m talking about. We even have to answer to those who question our decisions because we drive a “Ford”. But at the end of the day, I know I’m proud to drive a Ford and I only hope to pass on the Ford tradition to my future generations. I will forever drive a Ford. It’s the only brand of vehicle I truly feel comfortable and safe in.
