Rob:

My main concern with Ford is the Ford family i.e.
will they allow Mulally to really run the company
and do the things that needs to be done or will be
in his feet and cause things to get worse.

Now speaking of technology...in the late 60s
Ford decided to put a car in Le Mans race, it
was a Ford engine of course with two american
drivers... Phil Hill a well seasoned and well
known Grand Prix driver from Costa Mesa,
California who knew Le Mans track like the back
of his hand and our great Indy driver from Texas
(can't think of his name) who retired a couple
years ago. They ran the race which of course they
won with no hitch. It was a surprising victory
thanks to the engine. It was something that had
never been tried before by an american car company.

What I am trying to say is that the technology
exists it is a question if the Ford family wants/
will let the Mulally do his job.
