Does Ford sell a drone-proof car? They could test market them in the Middle East. We're going to need them here before long.

Good job FORD!!!!!! To walkerms1, Ford doesn't support terrorism any more than the Obama Administration (US Treasury) who funds terrorism directly.

Civilization and the Middle East are far apart. They can NOT build their own. SOMEONE has to build the cars, why not us?

These guys so trouble coming down the road and got ready for it, which is why they didn't need a bail out, at the same time they also saw what changes needed to be in what they were building. Sorry to see the Crown Vic go, she was a workhorse, and cheap in purchase price to.
