  1. I LIKE THIS IDEA! FORD AT LEAST SHOWS SOME REAL COMMITMENT WITH THIS PROGRAM. ALMOST FEELS LIKE THE 60’S.
    YES I AM OLD ENOUGH TO REMEMBER TOTAL PERFORMANCE OF THAT ERA. I HAVE BEEN A FORD FAN SINCE I WAS VERY YOUNG, 4 TO BE EXACT, THAT MAKES 56 YEARS ALL TOLD. INCIDENTLY OUR FAMILY CAR WAS A 51 MERCURY FLATHEAT WITH DUALS AND GLASSPACKS. NOT TO MENTION THE LEOPARD SKIN DASH AND FUZZY DICE.
