Ford Loyality

My grandfather was a Ford mechanic. He worked at the Ford garage in Paris Tennessee. His motto to his family was – “If it is not a Ford, don’t buy it and if you do, don’t bring it to me to work on”. He was loyal to Ford. My father was also loyal to Ford. He loved the Thunderbird. My first car was a 1975 Mustang. As I have grow up and became an adult I have purchased several cars and trucks from all automotive sources. I purchased a 2002 Ford explorer in 2001. My husband was called into the ministry and became a preacher. My Ford Explorer was used as the church bus for about four years. In 2006 I was diognoised with breast cancer. I had to travel every week from Paris to Nashville for Chemo Treatments and doctor appointments, again my Ford Explorer never missed a lick. My husband and I have five grandchildren and my Ford Explorer has hauled them around many times. In 2007 my husband and I took three foster children into our home. Lots of trips to doctors, counselaing, school and activities. In 2010 the foster childern became ours, we adopted them. They are now 8, 11 and 12 . I still have my Ford Explorer. I can truely say it is the best vechicle I have ever owned. It has almost 200,000 miles on it. I drive it everyday anywhere I need to go. I never worry about it getting me there or getting me back home. Someday I will be getting a new one. I now understand why my grandfather and father were loyal to Ford. I work for an automotive company for 37 years. We make Ford products (Boss, Coyote, Mustang, F150). I truely understand why Ford has the reputation they have of strieving to supply the highest quality vehicles to their customers.
