What's a Toyota Driver doing co-hosting a Ford Meetup

My connection to Ford is through Scott Monty - Ford's Social Media Head who is a good friend ( except he promised to send me a model Ford Mustang for my toddler). I was in San Francisco recently for #Tbash the launch party for Shel Israel's Book Twitterville - How Business can thrive in New Global negihborhoods. The Thrifty Car Rental at SFO gave me a Ford Focus and I thought it drove well. When I returned the car I told Thrifty that it took some time for the A/C to start up and they promised to look into it. Thrifty is a great rental car company, I was in and out in less than 5 minutes . You can never judge a car by a rental but thats the only opportunity I get to drive other brands and find out features companies are adding to cars.

I am curious about Ford, They did not ask for bail out money and see to focus a lot on user feedback. I have heard good reviews of the newer cars they are making and want to check out the new Ford Taurus 2101. I also get a chance to meet Ken Czubay Ford Motor Company’s, Vice President, U.S. Marketing, when he's in Washington D.C. next Thursday September 3rd . If you are in DC and want to check out the new Ford Taurus and have a meetup;
