Have you seen the recent Ford TV ad where Bill Ford says his dream car is a red Mustang convertible with a throaty V8 and a great sound system. Ed, is he talking about your car or mine?

:D

Yup !!

Seen it!




Finally,
Ford is producing some excellant commercials ... !!




I also like the Tbird one -

where a "sports" car rolls up to a new Tbird sitting at the light -

the guy "kicks" his girl out to start the race ...

the girl starts the race -
and the guy in the "sports" car takes off...

however, the guy in the tbird doesn't take off ...
he asks the girl if she wants a ride.

She hops in, they turn the next corner and drive away !!

Way to go Ford !!:thumbsup: :bounce: :bounce:

He would no doubt prefer yours to Wilbur! Your's has the extra "venom" envied and desired by many and owned only by a select few. ;)

Unfortunately I think he meant to say his nightmare car. His dream car is an electric vehicle that gets at least 80 MPG and emits zero pollution.

Have you hugged a tree lately?

Hey Dave,
Larry and I saw that commercial too and maybe Ford was talking about our red convertible.....after all we are closer to Detroit!!
You will have to ask Larry to tell you about that Mustang.....the one that started his collection. ;) Janice

November of 1997, I told Janice that she needed to trade her daily driver. When she refused, I told her that I was going to get a Mustang. She did not believe me. I had in mind to order a new 1998 convertible, but when I saw what Ford had deleted on the 1998's I started searching dealerships for a 1997. Luckily I was assigned to train locomotive engineers in the Detroit area with more than 30 dealerships nearby. At Varsity Ford in Ann Arbor I found a triple black 1997 GT convertible equipped exactly the way I would have ordered it. The salesman asked if I had considered a Cobra. When I said no, he offered the keys to 1997 coupe for a test drive. He did not even go along! The car made quite an impression, but when I asked about Cobra convertibles he started talking about waiting list, full sticker price, no choice on color, etc. I really liked the Cobra performance, but had my mind made up to get a convertible. I almost signed for the black GT, but a Rio Red GT convertible kept drawing me to it. That became my first Mustang, purchased 33 years after the desire to own one developed with the first sighting of a 1964 1/2 Mustang. When the fastbacks were introduced in September, 1964, that became my dream car. That dream fullfilled in February, 1999, with the addition of the car seen in the avitar. In June, 2001, we filled the performance gap I had been feeling since my Cobra test drive with purchase of our 1997 Cobra coupe.

Our Bill Ford dream car is a 1997 Mustang GT convertible in Rio Red with every option except a block heater and automatic transmission. We drive it in nice weather only and maintain it to better than new condition. It has done quite well in Mustang Club of America national show competition with two class firsts in two tries. We will be trying again in Youngstown, Ohio, July 12-14, so we will not be with the SCMC gang going to the Victor Ford show in Wauconda, IL.
