Chocolate, Flowers and Ford!

By Tori T.

Today is Valentine’s Day and it’s usually a day full of emotions – most notably, love! And there’s one love that has remained constant; it was probably love at first sight, which quickly grew into a dependable, can’t-imagine-my-life-without relationship. That’s right, we’re talking about the overwhelming feelings you have for your Ford!

And if you’re simply in the mood for a good ol’ fashioned, heart-warming love story, check out the accompanying video with Jim Farley, the Group Vice President of Global Marketing, Sales and Service for Ford.

This week, we’ve been entertained by the stories you’ve shared on Ford Social about how your Ford has factored in to how you wooed, proposed to or have spent your life with your significant other! Keep them coming by sharing your stories here !

To mark the celebration of Valentine’s Day (or what we like to think of as unofficial Love My Ford Day), you can snag a limited-edition “Valentine’s Day” badge , available only until February 17, 2012. If that’s not your style, click here to see the many other Ford badges you can collect!

I surprised my husband last August with a 2012 Focus, for all the support he gave me while I finished nursing school.

At me never was the car - therefore my love (history connected with the car) it is possible to name "plutonic relations" with confidence. But if to take into consideration that I as the teenager dream till now of it (about the car) and sometimes I think out its design - then it puts on my relation - romantic notes. We do a conclusion: at me "romantic- plutonic" relations with the car. / You know my story =)

Now have a 2008 F350 Lariat, 2007 Explorer Eddie Bower and a 2008 Focus as daily drivers. Also a half dozen other Ford's notice my 66 Galaxie LTD 2dr htp in my picture.

I drove a Ford Pinto to high school, one foggy morning I left my lights on. Went to start my car at lunch and the battery was dead. A fellow classmate offered to jump start it for me. He caught my attention with that gesture and jump started my heart too, that was 25 years and two kids ago, still makes my heart jump and is still my personal roadside assistance!

I had dreamed of owning a Mustang since I was old enough to drive, but never had the money when I was young. Marriage and child-rearing came along and my vehicle was a Windstar (which has the heart of a Mustang, truth be told), still going strong at 173,000 miles. On our 35th wedding anniversary, my husband bought me a 2007 black Mustang GT w/a 5 speed manual. It was the first vehicle I ever had that made me smile just looking at it. I thought nothing could top that, but since our youngest son was itching to buy the GT, there's now a performance white 2012 Boss 302 with my "GOGRNNY" vanity plates on it! It was my dream car in high school, and now it's a dream come true AGAIN!

Mike 02/14/2012
Right now I drive a '10 Escape, due to a financial set back a few years ago, but next December, I am gettin' me a 13 'Stang GT! I cannot wait. I have been a Ford freak since I was a kid. My dad's best friend was a Ford dealer and we always had Fords. My most memorable Ford was me Mum's '59 Galaxie Fairlane 500 convertible. I will never forget that car. I remember every inch of that masterpiece, including how it smelled in our garage and the smell of the interior of that phenomenal vehicle on a warm spring day, with the top down.... I LOVE FORD!

Well, exactly one year ago today, I got my 2011 Ford Sport Fusion! Love it! However, it is still no match for the Valentines Day I came home from work and my husband had a bubble bath waiting on me, with tea candles lit all around the tub, small teddy bear, one single red rose, cooked supper, and wait for it.....even washed the dishes. He will never be able to top that day!
