Both my father and my fiancee’s father worked for Ford in Woodlawn, NY. My immediate family has owned Ford products since 1960. I have owned an two Escorts, (1981 and 1986)a 1990 Tempo, a 1997 Contour and a 2005 Escape. All have had inline 4 cylinder engines, manual transmssions, and all have exceeded 100,000 miles. The Tempo had 263,000 miles on it, the Contour had 212,000 miles and the Escape has just under 202,000 miles.
We have been fortunate enough to do business with Conroy Motor Corp. in North Java, NY for the past 40 years.
Finally, I am the proud owner of a 1958 Edsel Pacer 4 door hardtop which I bought in 2007. It is a work in progress, and a ball to drive. It gets quite a bit of attention we we take it out for a drive.
Thank for for allowing me to post this story.
