Thanks for the pictures.  That is a sweet car and the history of it makes it even more intriguing.

So the truth of the matter Steve O is that Black Jade and were on equal footing (we shared our conversation pretty evenly).  :)

And yes, part of the conversation centered around the fact of Black Jade's personal history with both family owned Ford dealerships and the mega corporate entities.  Here's hoping that the day returns when more of everything returns to local ownership!

P.S. Let the Ford dealership know that I will double your offer! :)

You are correct, they are few and far between. I would still be working for the first dealer I started with but they sold out to corporate and down hill it went. The next was a
locally owned that was up for sale when I got on there. The first thing the corporation did was tear out the coffee/soda bar that was for customers and employees and replace
it with vending machines. Huh I am now in my home town where the fourth generation is taking over running the place and all is still good. So I am hoping to retire from here
18 years. Thumbup By the way I think this could also be one of the last around with a loaner car fleet for customers.
