  • Good to see this: Ford on the way up!

    Good management and good products. 'Sounds like a plan that produces good results without hosing bondholders in a sleight-of-hand "bankruptcy."

    And with an able assist from Team Toyota's "everybody calm down; it's just the floor mats" arrogance, they passed Toyota to regain #2 status.

    Good news all around. (Disclosure: I own no Ford stock. Of the 11 motor vehicles I own, only one is a Ford Motor Company product, a 1973 Mustang convertible.)

    'Bully for them:

    We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

    Ayn Rand:
    "You can avoid reality, but you cannot avoid the consequences of avoiding reality."

    G. K. Chesterton: This triangle of truisms, of father, mother, and child, cannot be destroyed; it can only destroy those civilizations which disregard it.

    I agree, They hired a manager w/o automotive experience and let him change things until ultimatly the product improved and the public noticed. If only Mr. Vance had been jettisoned in the mid-fifties perhaps Studebaker could have found a niche market. As in all things Management is the key to success. I also do not own a Ford but do own a bunch of their preferred stock (FCZ) which has been a wonderful investment.

      I was one of the lucky ones that bought Ford stock awhile ago when it was around $5.00 a share. Yes and I do own a Ford Truck, two Chevys and a Packard.

        My 1998 Ford F-150 Lariet has been the most dependable, trouble free vehicle I have ever owned. I recently turned over 100,000 miles and during 12 years of its life other that routine maintence the only item that failed was an alternator.
