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.
Thanks Royce, great posting. I enjoyed it very much.
I wonder if that slick Edsel convertible is still in the family at a museum somewhere.
Royce, I heard about his death yesterday, thanks for filling in some details with those photos.
Tom Miller sent me a few more great pictures of William Clay "Bill" Ford Sr.:
