I Have been driving for over fifty years. My first car was a 1951 Mercury. My dad drove Buicks at that time, but as we lived in northern Michigan, and or cars sat otside, most of the winters, my dad had to drive my car, as it was the only one that started on the very cold days.I have owned 60 + cars in this period of time, of which 49 of them were Ford prducts From new to the fifty dollar varity. I never owned one that I wasn’t very satisfied with. I had a 1995 ford F-250 that I rooled over, and only had time to think, ” oh boy ! this is going to hurt”, but while I was waiting for the pain, I realilized, I Not only wasnot hurt, but was still comfortable. I had it towed home, and discovered that although it was dented up badlly that there was no broken glass,and every thing still worked. I drove it another two years.I presently own a 2004 Mercury Monteray, aa 2002 Mercury Grand Marque, and a 1995 F-150. I wouldn”t hesitate to travel anywhere in any of the three. I can depend on all. I will tell you , “If its not Ford built, I won”t by it.” John Bussey Sr.
