April 28th 1976

Post by Brian »

Going through some old files I came across this little archive on the introduction of the new "Q" cab. You can see the luxury that being a Ford Dealership manager you expected.

The curtains drew back to a fanfare of trumpets, spotlights and clouds of dry ice as the cab appeared on stage.

WoW. That's a nice info Brian. Remembers me of lying in the back of this cab of our 5600 when I was a child when my dad was ploughing.
