Do you feel like something very distinct is all that’s missing from your life? Are you looking for a car packed with individuality that’s ready to fly? Do like the random words we can put in front of ‘-O-Matic’? Everything sounds better with some ‘-O-Matic’, that’s for sure.

If you like those ‘71 ‘Birds, try a quick trip to your Ford dealer’s. They are just past GM’s.
