Re: Ford and Mazda
Ummmm, good question. I know Ford started a joint venture with Mazda in 1969 for automatic transmissions. During the 1970's Mazda was hit hard by the oil shock. In 1979 Ford owned 25% of Mazda. In 1992, Ford became the controlling shareholder of Mazda. That started Auto Alliance Inc. in North America, a joint venture between Mazda and Ford.
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.....
