ford quality

most of you are probably too young to remember ford's cry in 1979. they we proud of their new selling point. they boldly claimed that their quality was 33% better than the last year's models were. soo.. i read that as all their previous models were 33% more crap. doesn't say much for all their older cars did it.

at a mall show in Portland, OR all the car dealers had displays showing off the new model year. i remember fords being there but what i remember most was i believe a 1979 4 door 450. it had a price tag on it of 22,000 or so dollars. but the difference was obvious. start with the paint and proceed from there. our domestics couldn't hold a candle to MBZ back then. but i don't think that could be said today. too bad
Thanks Much!
