    Going Ford is the going thing..

    Well, did that bring back memories..
    I was working at a ford dealership then as a parts wally, they also sold a lot of Ford tractors, so some one came up with something a bit different,
    Going Ford is the Growing thing...
    Refernce to the massive cropping market gardens in south auckland.
    My father had a XA V8, i had a XT 302 Fairmont, he reckoned my Fairmont when better than his !
    We must have bought dozens of fords from this dealer.
    They went bust, and now theres a LoneStar resteraunt in its place .
