Glad to hear you liked our place xlr8. We change our displays every six months or so. What was your favourite thing in the place?

I do my best, as does the rest of the team at the FDC. For the guys who are going to the October trip i am sure you all will have a ball. Discovery (felicity) has worked very hard at this and i'm sure everyone will enjoy it. Roll on October.......:D :D :D :D :D
Thanks for the kind words chucky.

Thumbs up

I'd just like to add my praise for the Ford Discovery Centre. While being a little 'geographically challenged' and not having had the opportunity to visit personally, Felicity was able to put me in touch with the Ford Historian Adrian (dead set legend) and I have been fortunate to receive some absolutely PRICELESS Ford Probe memorabilia.

The additional information that Ford have provided has been of huge interest to not only myself - but the complete Probe 'community' that I keep in touch with. We are all extremely grateful for the efforts that FDC go to in promoting and encouraging not only the Ford brand - but the history of the company, its products AND MOST IMPORTANTLY it's enthusiasts.

I had been searching high and low for all and anything "Probe" and generally found dead ends.

Thank you again to everyone there. Especially Felicity and Adrian. Can this be passed on to either or both if they do not see it personally???

Oh - if anything ELSE turns up, don't forget me?? :D

Regards,
