Seriously, at $13 Ford's P/E is under 8. With the quasi demise of GM, Ford is the #1 US automobile company. Toyota even after all of their problems and losses trades way up at around $70. Ford is turning profits. The "target" seems way low. In fact, why isn't this a $20 stock????
Cool car,Gomek. We always remember our first.
Found a good article on the Ford F-150's new Diesel, plus the new powertrain software they mentioned at the sales call this week (webcast at Ford.com> Investors> Events). They could have saved the new software for the 2012 model. Instead, the 2011's already at the dealers will get it, not just the next ones the factory makes. Plus, they are allowing people who've already bought a 2011 to bring it in and get the software upgrade, no charge. It's part of a strategy to gain customer loyalty-- be good to the customer and the customer will be good to you. Am trying to find the link again.

You owned a Gremlin?!!! As a youngster, I always wanted a Gremlin! With the Levi's interior and a V8. But that was never to be. Then, in 1980, I had a friend who briefly owned a 1973 Javelin that he was looking to sell. It was mine for $600 and a 1970 Plymouth Duster. I removed the non-functional air conditioning system, and had a Fair Muffler shop convert me to dual-exhaust for less than $200. That car, in spite of its temperamental nature, was my first true love.
It was basically this vehicle -- except in red, with a black vinyl roof. http://www.chooseyouritem.com/classics/photos/154500/154880.1973.AMC.Javelin.2-Door.Hardtop.jpg
I was an AMC fanatic. I couldn't believe that one could own a share of "AMERICAN" Motors for $5. I was hooked. It was my first automotive stock purchase.
I know you were from Wisconsin originally. Were you a Kenoshaite or from that area?
