I wouldnt of thought that a "Save the Fiesta Movement" would of started till at least 10 years into its life cycle here in the states.

Pretty amazing story, but not surprising either after having dealt with a couple impound lots in my past.

I think its time to get the media involved...news conference type stuff...a city, any city, doesn't like or certainly want any adverse publicity. Go to the city council mtgs, etc etc., but be sure and get the news media involved. Will definietly get the car back.

Eh, the whole thing strikes me as a farce. Nothing more than a publicity stunt. I mean, if he was there AT the impound lot, and took a picture, and assuming it was digital, why not just walk into the office of the impound lot and show them the picture. It was said that he called and "informed them he had a picture" but they're not likely to believe that. Not to mention that somehow Ford's "tracking system" isn't working for his car? Not likely, Ford has probably gone to great extents to ensure the safety and whereabouts of these cars.

If it is a hoax... its a damn good effort though...

It's just plain hilarious that he got his impounded for not reading the signs right. Those traffic / Parking violations as little as they are can make your car life crap.

that is truly ridiculous...

both getting your loaner car towed when you are supposed to test and write articles about it, and then the car getting lost in the system.

I'm just not feeling sorry for the guy.
