The More, The Better!

My family, and especially me, we all love ford motor company. we have a long history of fords and a future to come. Way before i was born, my dad had a 96 Eddie Bauer Ford Explorer. He loved that thing and it held up very well. We moved onto a pre-owned 97 Eddie Bauer Ford Expidition. That was my Mom and Dad’s first car with me. It is still running in my uncle’s family and it has 300 thousand miles on it (for more info check out “Built Tough”, my other story all about that car). My grandparents then bought a 99 Ford Expidition because they saw how much we loved and used ours. My Grandaddy owns a 01 Ford Explorer and still has it. He loves to take it on the south end (beach for cars) in Wilmington NC. It is running great and he abuses all of the storage compartments. My 88 year old great granny has a 95 Ford CrownVictoria LX that i love and will get when i turn 16. It is my favorite car ever and is the model that helped protect our town and cities with the police dept. My dad is now looking at a 73 Ford Country Squire LTD LImited station wagon as we speak. He also runs a business shipping cars to germany and most of the cars we receive are 60s mustangs.

Most older people like larger cars than Toyota and Nissan that is why they have always chosen the Mercury Grand Marquis, the Crown Victoria and the Lincoln Town Cars. You have the "Baby Boomers" coming of age to buy these larger cars and you have discontinued making 2 of them and down sized the other one until it is no larger than a Toyota or Honda. People don't always like Suv's to get a larger car but they are Forced to buy them for the bigger experience. My Grandson has a wife and 3 children and they had to buy an Suv and a double cab pickup truck to carry their family around. You cannot put 3 car seats in the rear seat of a compact car comfortably. I am just absolutely frustrated with Ford that they have let the designers cut their product line down to 3 cars and Suv's, all compacts. I want to trade in my Mercury Grand Marquis LS (2007) for a newer car, but there is not a car on the market today the size of mine. I will not trade down in size. I will keep what I have until a car manufacturer wakes up and suddenly realizes they have "cut off their noses to spite there face". Ford Fusion, Ford Focus and Ford Fiesta will not support Ford Motor Company. Neither will the Ford F-150 that was once Motor Trend "Truck Of The Year" but not any more. What has happened to the Ford we all used to know. Is it gone forever? I sure hope not!!! Give us something bigger and better. Thank you, Ron Tuten
