Re: Chicago: Ford Press Conference Schedule

Lincoln should have a conference at every major show. Even with no new concept or vehicle, they should show a special limited edition of one or several vehicles.

The early bird gets the worm..but the second mouse gets the cheese.

not sure I see any point to a press conference with no news
tho
I'd like to see them have them of each step of a developing Bespoke Program

The 2nd event is a "social media" gathering. Basically, Ford invited a bunch of people from its various social media focus groups to a party at the Ford display. Only the first event involves a vehcile debut.

Re: Chicago: Ford Press Conference Schedule

I love the Chicago Show can't wait to see what might be coming from Ford.

Chicago was where Mercury unveiled all of it's new and latest/greatest products the majority of the time. I certainly miss all of that.



2001 MERCURY SABLE LS PREMIUM 133K
2007 MERCURY MILAN BASE 65K
2011 BUICK LACROSSE CXL 17K
