When I started this blog, I wrote about how I think good marketing has to be interactive, how you have to get your customers to feel like they are involved in your brand. Well, that’s one of the things the marketers at Ford are doing very well with their The Ford Story site. In particular, they are giving their customers the opportunity to tell their stories.
The gentleman in the photo is Dick F. Now, Dick has covered 619,000 miles in his Ford Mustang and is still going strong. “I’ve owned my 1971 Ford Mustang since it was brand new. I now have 619,484 miles on the car. Every mile and every drop of fuel has been logged. Very close to original” he says “I’ve done all of the maintenance and repairs, including engine rebuilding. I think it might make it another 300,000 or 400,000 miles, which would make it 1,000,000 miles total. We’ve always been a Ford family, and I think Ford makes the best cars.”
