Default The guy who won the 120 million last week in michigan rips ford.

Despite his longtime association with Ford, he said he won't be using any of the money to buy one of his former employer's vehicles.

"I worked for Ford Motor Company," he said. "I won't be buying a Ford product."

I saw a corrected version out on Yahoo that state that he did NOT state he would not buy a Ford. The corrected version say he would not be a for(EIGN) vehicle.

It's nice to see some people still have some product/employer loyalty nowadays.

Hell, if I was given that much money it would be hard for me not to want to buy me an Aston Martin.

He has said he isn't even considering a new car, just a cottage and two boats on Mullett lake. Gave his friends he works with (and used to buy a pool of lotto tix with) $1 million a piece too. Sounds like a descent guy!

Gasoline at cost is maybe 10 to 15 cents cheaper than what you pay for it.

Thats enough for people to sit in the road for 2 hours blocking up traffic just so they can say they got "cheap" gas.

Maybe, maybe not. Chrysler is doing some major restructuring. Ford is still sucking.
