My father bought our first Ford in 1952, an F-6 two ton truck. He bought a second shortly after, an F-7 two and one half ton “Big Job.” Dad was in the wholesale grocery business. Both trucks carried 12 ton every day. We’ve been driving Fords ever since. Our first ford car was a 1953 Customline with the flathead V-8 and Fordomatic. I currently have a Mustang convertible, an Expedition and a Mercury Mountaineer. My kids and most of my relatives drive fords.
