A Marriage Made At Ford

I always have driven Ford products starting with a modified 1939 Ford coupe, which by the way, I did not purchase new. My all time favorite, however, was the new 1970 “Grabber Green” Boss 302 I purchased while on an educational leave of absence.

When I rejoined Ford in August 1970, I joined the Product Development Controllers Office where I met Arlene, my wife of 40 years. When I first proposed to my wife, she said “Okay, but that car of yours has to go. It’s your choice, the car or me”.

As painful as it was to have to sell that Boss 302, I must admit, it was the best decision I ever made. I’ve had a new “boss” for 40 years and am looking forward to many more years with Arlene.

Don’t tell her, but I have been looking at the new Boss Mustangs at the local dealership.
