Ford-wheel Driving, YeeHaaa!

I’m pretty excited about this new Ford!  Have you seen it?

It’s a four wheel drive, convertible, single seater.  No really.

I saw it at the dealership, the Ford dealership.  It even has a “Ford” emblem right on the front.  It seems to be the right color blue for 2013, at least that’s the color of my husband’s Fusion, so it has to be a real thing.  Right?

No look really, the Ford emblem is right there in the front.  Under the For Sale sign – YIKERS!!!! It’s $7000, ok, well $6995, but really how much better do you feel about saving five dollars?

Again, holy crap, $7000!   

Well, like I said, it is a four wheel drive, so you can use it in the winter – you’d just need to bundle up.  The tires and suspension looks good, you could put a plow on it and make some of that money back.  Um, technically it’s half the price of a small car, so maybe it’s a good deal?

I suppose you could get two people on it?  Therefore, you could drop your kid off at school in the morning and on your way back to the house, plow a few driveways, grab a coffee at Tim Hortons and have a half days work in by 11am?  It could be a good deal, if you were looking to start up that kind of business.  

Since we are city folk here, there isn’t much use of it for four wheeling in the fields out back, there aren’t any fields out back – ohhh, unless you consider the part of Detroit that is returning to nature, hmmm, the dealership could be on to something.  

Everyone is wondering what to do with the declining/disappearing neighborhoods (due to blight, fires, collapse and general overgrowth) Ford may be on to something – Baha-ing in the city!!!  WooHooo – yeah, this could be fun!  

I’ve seen plenty of pheasant around, of course, I don’t suppose you could legally hunt pheasant in  Detroit, but certainly you could build dirt piles and ramps and kick around in the vast areas of the east side!  A kind of motor/eco tourism.  Yeah, Mr. Ford, I think you’re on to something indeed.
