Say'Ford'and several names and images spring to mind: mass production; the'Model T '; the name'Henry'and the iconic signature style Logo.

Ford cars are ubiquitous, and their images sustained, and several have popped up within my life. The initial that I could remember is just a beigey/goldey/ rusty coloured Mark IV Cortina.

The Mark IV was assembled in Dagenham, Essex, and was the United Kingdom's most popular car of the seventies, in production from 1976 - 79, and the successor to three previous generations / incarnations first released in 1962. That one was squarer and somehow chunkier than its forebears, and came as either as saloon or estate.

Aside from a period owing an orange Orion (which you can open with just about any Ford key at the time (or so it seemed)), another significant Ford moment for me was witnessing a little corruption in industry in the Nineties, when a'Probe'was'gifted'to a parts buyer inturn for a favourable outcome on a contract. The person had expressed a pastime in the automobile to a Sales Director, whose company car it was, and it became part of an incentive package that included foreign travel, a samurai sword and a female of the night. But enough of the, jobs were lost, contracts renegotiated, and the entire world moved on - and now we find eleven million VW cars under scrutiny for some extremely questionable cheating business practices.
