Buying American

I have always bought American made vehicles, most of which have been Ford products. My first purchase was a hatchback Mustang which I kept for a long time and then my Mom drove it for years after. A few other models included a Galaxie and Taurus.

The Taurus was my first new car and I drove it until it had over 150,0000 miles.

When my son was in college and needed a reliable car I purchased a used Ford Explorer with just under 60,000 miles. I am still driving this car and it now has close to 180,000 miles. I sell real estate and use my car constantly. I still love this vehicle and laugh when I see some of the “other” brand’s commercials gloating over their miles.

I would buy a ford any time and still love the product and love buying made in America. Thank you Ford!

I’m sure there are a lot of men like me out there who grew up on big powerful cars but are too old to be tooling around in a Mustang. We don’t need an suv or 4-door car any more. A 2-door version of the Fusion or Mkz with a V-8 or even a V-6 Turbo would sell to our demographic. Ford being the only American car company left it is all I will buy and I’m sure there are many who feel the same, so adding some type of sport coupe would be a smart move for Ford/Lincoln.
