    Bill Ford

    Is A "Car Guy" folks. He wants to build exciting great cars and he is just getting started, He is cleaning up the mess of the late 90's and is now gearing up a "monster" run. I have know doubt we will be at 20 bucks a share by years end.

    Giddy Up and Ride!!!!

    • I have similar sentiments. Two years ago, my wife got conned into leasing a Malibu by my GM brother-in-law, I am ashamed to admit. That will never happen again.

    • Forthebetter, you said "Let's hope that the efforts put forward to rid the company of the last vestiges of his mis-management are successful and Ford can recover to once again be the successful company it was in the early to late 90's before "

      That kind of honest viewpoint is certainly well-deserved and would be appreciated by the folks still burning the midnight oil at Ford.

    • I also am an insider and I think all Ford employees should be driving Fords. ( not Jags, Mazdas, Volvos, or Land Rovers) About 1/3 of the FORD salaried employees do not drive their own vehicles. What mesage do you think this sends to outsiders?

    • Odd point of view, in fact, clearly ill-informed. You obviously know nothing personally about Ford's current upper management. I happen to have close, personal experience with current HR staff and they are superb. Your name-dropping for current staff is cowardly when you are anonymous.

    • I suspect you are correct, if you are looking to make a quick buck near-term, or if you are a retiree for whom risk tolerance is low. For me, from what I see inside, I am bouyed particularly long-term which is my investment strategy.


    • Mr. Fly, I appreciate your support which I want my hard-working co-workers to know is for them, not me. Being an insider makes it somewhat difficult to provide details, but suffice it to say that what I see inside are a lot a talented people "burning the midnight oil" to build better, safer cars. They love their jobs and they love Ford Motor Company, as I do.

    • He might have thought it was a hit man assigned to him.

    • <<<FORD IS BIG ON FACE TIME. >>>

      LOL! I forgot all about that! I was a buyer at NAAO from 92-94 and I was told that I was doing a great job, but wasnt gonna get anywhere unless I got more 'face time' with Carlos Mazzorin. And his flunkies.

      Well, one night I was coming home kinda late from a at 4AM and was driving down telegraph up by square lake rd and about hit a jogger jogging down the street.

      It was Carlos....he saw me and I saw him....the look on his face was one of fright...I think that Face Time was about all I needed....LOL!

    • If you stayed there 12 hours a day and put in the free weekend work, and got really good at Powerpoint were considered a hard worker...regardless of the quality of work that you did.

      They say management is effective in evaluating only 16% of the employees.
      What do you expect if Ford is run by MBA's
      who never designed or manufactured anything except getting that MBA for career growth and
      Ever wonder how a supervisor or manager can go
      from one department to another that are not related?
