US:Bill Ford proposes energy summit

Bill Ford proposes energy summit

By Harry Stoffer
Automotive News

WASHINGTON -- Ford Motor Co. CEO Bill Ford is calling on President Bush to bring government and private-sector leaders together to define long-term solutions to the nation's energy problems.

Ford made the request to the president in a letter on Thursday. He did not spell out proposals but said participants should represent such stakeholders as automakers, suppliers, energy providers, consumers, and state and federal governments.

"I am confident that we can overcome the great energy challenges facing our country," Ford wrote.

Ford reminded Bush of the company's announcement this week that it plans to increase its production of gasoline-electric hybrid vehicles tenfold, to 250,000 a year, by 2010. Ford Motor also intends to expand its offerings of other fuel-saving technologies.

A Ford Motor spokesman said the company did not get an immediate response from the White House.

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.....
