Oscars and Awards for Actors and Fords

Big Winners

What does actor Troy Kotsur have in common with the Ford Bronco, Bronco Sport, F-150, and Mustang Mach-E? They all received accolades for their performances while supporting others. Kotsur won the Oscar last night for Best Actor in a Supporting Role in “CODA”, and last week the Ford Bronco, Bronco Sport, F-150, and Mustang Mach-E earned high scores from Consumer Reports in its rear-seat safety test. 

CR rates vehicles based on key factors like car-seat fit, ease of use for booster seats, and rear-occupant alert technology.

Four of the top six vehicles for the 2021 model year come from Ford. Not too shabby!

Kotsur and those 4 outstanding vehicles do some of their best work behind the stars of the show, but that doesn’t mean they should be praised any less. Congratulations to Kotsur and all of the outstanding actors, actresses, directors, etc, that won awards last night. 

Ford and Kotsur were big winners last night. And despite winning Best Actor in a Leading Role for his performance in “King Richard”, I’d call Will Smith the big loser from last night. 

If you don’t know what I’m talking about…just Google it and see for yourself.

Happy Birthday Reba!

My Old Ford

A few weeks back I mentioned the Facebook group “My Old Ford“. If you’re a part of it already, that’s awesome! We’ve loved seeing so many cool pictures of your old Fords. If you aren’t a part of the group yet, what are you waiting for? Here are a few of the most recent cool old Ford pics we’ve seen in the group

John L. Barker's Ol' Blue

1970 Ford Falcon
Posted by George Edward Nielsen – 1970 Ford Falcon the year that there was the tale of two Falcons. The true 70 only had 17 built of them and then the 70.5 came out in the Torino body style. This was the last year for the Falcon.
