My dad and my brothers have always had a fascination with old cars, particularly classic ford pick up trucks. I never got on board with them in terms of feeling an intense desire to know what they knew about the history and the evolution of the ford, but I was fascinated more by how emotionally moved both my seemingly stoic brother and father were by seeing a certain model of a classic car.
My father grew up in the country and for some reason when he graduated with his bachelor’s he decided to be a lawyer instead of a cowboy. I can still see the country and regret in his eyes, which is why I think he is so moved by seeing that classic ford model. My brother would be able to tell you what it is, but I unfortunately can’t remember. I know it was a model from the 50s because it was the first truck my dad learned to drive on. He was born in 1952. He was probably eleven or twelve when his father started to let him drive that truck around their land to distribute hay to the cattle.
It’s so powerful that you can still buy a historic ford car at a car dealership these days. It may not be the classic models, but Ford is constantly coming out with new and improved designs to help with gas mileage and longevity. These cars can still help create memories for any individual and family. My dad told me about a time they went on their first ever family vacation in their Ford truck and they drove into the mountains. They were from the plains so this was an extra special treat. Unfortunately for my dad’s father when we watched the mountains dance by their car, all he could think of was how horrible it would be to lose a calf in all of those trees, behind all of those boulders and potentially down it those valleys. He clutched the chair of his truck and thanked goodness he was safe inside the truck.
A ford vehicle can symbolize freedom for people and even family. That is why it is important to find a place that offers ford service in a way that respects and understands the legacy and sentimentality of the ford to the American people. I will never forget when my mother got rid of her first Ford car how she stood in the driveway and cried as they took it away. Her ford car became one of her friends. O’Meara Ford of Denver, Colorado understands how important you car is to you and wants to make sure to support that legacy. As a family owned industry for the last one hundred years they have a passion for ford new and used cars and trucks and want to make sure that anyone who feels connected to these cars and trucks will get all of the services that they deserve. My father’s father, my father and my brother all search out for companies like O’Meara that understand how important the Ford legacy is.
