Great article.

The first, I'm sure, of many that will garner Ford a priceless amount of well deserved publicity around the world.

Of course, Stormy would be in the picture!

Very hurtful Herb, especially when Karl could have used this one as well. Seriously, I was stunned as to how generous the entire Ford family was with there time. As many have stated, truly a once in a lifetime experience.
Great article Karl!
