We hope you will take a minute to view this heartwarming story of a lifelong Ford owner gifted a Ford Edge Titanium on his 75th birthday. The video is really the focus of our post, but we can share the backstory to give it more meaning.
Some families and individuals are more brand-loyal than others. One of the most loyal to brand families Torque News knows of is a family in the metro Boston area. The husband and wife are lifelong STEM educators in the local school system who, as far as we know, have always had a Ford product.
Included in the list they have owned are a vintage 60s Mustang still in the family, a Galaxy 500, a Fairmont, two Ford LTD wagons, two Explorers, one Mercury Mountaineer, a 2005 Mustang GT convertible, an Escape Titanium, and this new 2020 Edge Titanium. As you can see, the mix includes fun cars, family cars, and many utility vehicles. The family always needs at least one vehicle that can tow a boat.
This family isn’t just brand loyal. They are practically brand ambassadors for the Ford community. On many occasions, I have personally heard why they think Ford is the best brand and makes the very best vehicles.
As the video begins, we see the dad surprised by the new 2020 Ford Edge Titanium in the garage. He says, “Whose is this?” To which his family replies, “It’s yours.” His reply is perfect, “All right!” Without a moment’s delay, he then turns to his granddaughter and says, “Well, happy birthday to you. You have an Escape!”
If you watch the video closely at the end, you can see the vintage Mustang peeking out in the second garage bay, Can you name its year from just that short glance?
Our thanks to the family for sharing this touching video with us.
Note: The family has asked that we not name them in the post, so if you spot this story and know this family, please refrain from using their names in our comments section. Thank you.
