Great postings Royce. I'm sure he'll be missed. Sometimes I wonder, when the family gets "watered down" over time, what will become of the company? So far, so good thank goodness.

That shows the popularity of NFL football;he is more famous for being owner of the Detroit Lions than grandson of icon Henry Ford.

His son might just do a better job with the Lions. Look how good a job Bill Ford did when he hired Alan Mulally.

I wonder if that slick Edsel convertible is still in the family at a museum somewhere.
