Thumbs up Open letter to Ford...

As some of you may know,I work for Ford.
Today,we received this handwritten letter via the fax from our local Ford rep from a retired USAF woman who took the time to express her views...here's what she said:

Mr. Alan Mulally,

THANK YOU!!!!

For NOT asking for taxpayers money to bail out your company.
I know times are hard,but you have a good product and you can make it through this!

I had a 1993 Ford Ranger and put 269,000 miles on it.Just please stay responsible and accountable.
The Americans appreciate that and they will choose Ford over the others that take the taxpayers money for their mistakes.

Here is $10 to help you guys get back on track.

Sally ......
Retired USAF and thankful American

And with that,she did indeed enclose a crisp $10 dollar bill.
This letter has been sent out to all Ford dealer principals and I'm certain will cross the desk of Mr. Mulally if it hasn't already done so.

Wow,I was touched she cared enough to make this kind gesture.
Kinda restores your faith in humanity,doesn't it?

What do you guys think...?

^^I'll second that statement.... I've had GMs, Chrysler/Dodges (who are they today? Daiamler-Chrysler?? lol) and of course Fords. I've had a Toyota also and in my opinion it was no better than any of the American vehicles I've owned.

That is very cool. Good to see that if some random person rights a letter to the company it at least gets read.

I like my Focus a lot but I do think the Japanese and even Korean (Hyundai Sonata...although in a different model class) are better engineered then Ford. But they're also boring. The Focus has some personality which I like.
