U.S.A.:Ford loses minivan case

Detroit Free Press

Ford Motor Co. was ordered by a jury to pay about $45 million for selling Windstar minivans with a defective seat belt that contributed to a child's injuries.

The Los Angeles Superior Court jury ordered Ford to pay $15 million in punitive damages and $30 million in compensation, said Thomas Girardi, an attorney for the family of Johan Karlsson.

The case involves a 1996 accident that occurred when the Karlsson family's minivan hit a 29,900-pound roll of steel that fell from a truck on I-5.

Ford argued that Johan Karlsson wasn't properly wearing his lap belt and that the truck driver was responsible for the accident.

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.....
