To all Ford News Blog’s loyal readers out there…
If you have been watching over this blog over the past week, you may have noticed that no stories have been posted. And with the Paris International Motor Show starting this week, it was a very inconvenient time for the holidays to pop up as my family and myself decided to go on a week long camping trip. So I am terribly sorry that all you Ford lovers have missed out on all the goss. So to make up, I will post up all the weeks (or as many as possible) news TODAY! 🙂
So sit back, ‘chillax’ and have a great time catching up with the latest in Ford news…
PS: The camping trip was great! 😉
