Buy a Ford

My car is just over a year old, so I am not currently in the market for a new one. But when I am, I will buy a Ford. You should, too.

Why? Because Ford deserves to be recognized and rewarded for rejecting federal bailout money and getting through its financial crisis on its own. For embracing capitalism and rejecting socialism at a time when it would have been much easier to simply take the cash.

Now Ford has announced plans to spend more than half a billion dollars to modernize production facilities in Michigan. Who spends half a billion dollars when sales are down 30 percent? A company that is looking to the future and doing something positive to make sure they get there.

Show your appreciation and admiration for an organization that gets it right. Buy a Ford.

  1. You failed to mention the fact that the economic downturn will result in GM phasing out the Pontiac brand, so you'll be forced to change providers anyway.

    Best case scenario: Our cars will be collectors' items.

    Worst case scenario: We'll have to resort to locating replacement parts on the black market.
