North America:Ford may make some new models in Mexico

MEXICO CITY, July 1 (Reuters) - Ford Motor Co. F.N plants in Mexico may make some of the new models which the company hopes will spearhead its return to prominence in the mid-sized car market, a Ford executive said on Tuesday.
"If things go well, it is likely that this year we will have confirmation that indeed there will be a new product (made) in Mexico," Marcos S. De Oliveira the head of Ford Mexico told Reuters.

In April, Ford unveiled the Futura which will provide the platform of up to 10 new Ford, Lincoln and Mercury models over the next several years.

De Oliveira said production at Ford's three plants in Mexico was likely to fall this year due to excess capacity and low demand in the United States.

Ford produced 185,874 units in Mexico in 2002, down from 239,690 in 2001. It manufactured 57,334 vehicles in Mexico from January to May this year, a drop of 15.5 percent from the same period in 2002.

My first car was a 67 Mustang Coupe, 2nd one was a 67 Cougar XR-7, 3rd one was a 66 Mustang Coupe. Why did I get rid of these cars for ? I know why, because I'm stupid, stupid, stupid.

My next Ford.....
