I hope they start building some 2 doors. It seems all their cars are 4 doors these days.

"Futura" Was that the name given to the Ford Falcon?

Yup, and there was a fox body by that name in the seventies. Nobody can accuse Ford of being overly original.

Ford is going to name all of it's cars with names beginning with the letter "F" except for Mustang and Thunderbird (the "living legends" cars).

The Windstar was renamed "Freestar" recently.

The next large car, the 500 also begins with an "F".
