Re: fordshop CLOSED WTF?

You are both right Kmart and Target are slowly getting in stock of Ford racing merchandise. I was lucky enough to get an orsm looking Ford Racing bomber jacket for $70.
I then went to BAINES and asked about Ford manchester and she handed over a whole booklet of Ford Racing. I think people we be surprised to see how much more Ford gear is going to become available.
