I grew up in a mostly Ford family.
Grandparents drove Tauruses and Lincoln Town Cars.
My dad was a sales manager at the local Ford dealer for several years, but I don't remember it much cuz he quit there when I was 3.
The first cars I remember are a blue 1980 Citation which burnt to the ground when a fuel line broke, and then a white 1981 Citation which replaced it.
After that... 1984 Cougar, 1979 Mustang, 1987 Thunderbird, 1989 Taurus.
Then my dad started driving Lincoln Town Cars...
1989, 1991, 1994, 1997, 1998, 2000, 2002, 2004, and now a 2006 (overall he's had 20 Town Cars lol).
During that time my mom had a 1995 Cougar, then a 1998 Mark VIII, and now a 2004 Porsche Cayenne S.
However the tide is changing!
Last spring my dad bought a new 2006 Corvette, and my mom just ordered a 2007 Cadillac SRX. With my mom having a 7-passenger vehicle, my dad wants to get a smaller, sportier sedan. Right now he thinks he wants a Jaguar, but I'm trying to talk him into a Saturn Aura or a new CTS.
My GM influence is rubbing off on them finally!
