Ford is still refusing to take federal bailout money. Not only is it admirable that they’re not using the public’s tax money to keep themselves afloat, it’s also a good business decision. If they really want to sell more Fords, they should start making commercials right now stressing the fact that they decided to tough it out while their competitor’s took the easy way out. It fits right into the Ford tough thing. I’ve always bought Fords, mainly because my father-in-law sells them, but now I’d buy one even if he didn’t.
