Thank You BF Evans

Lem,

The Ford Escape arrived in country this week. I picked it up yesterday

It's just a plain, white Escape but lots of people come up to me and ask questions because it's a Ford! I bet you could sell a lot of them here?

I wonder what BF Evans Ford would look like in Russian

Please thank Tony and Derick for their help in getting the Escape over here.

Bruce

Any day drag racing is a GOOD day.

Should be easy....I don't think they ever figured out how to build a car.

The older I get, the smarter Dad was.

If you ask the average Russian on the street about Russian cars they will tell you they are poorly built, hard to maintain, and have to be replaced much sooner than say a Japanese car.

90-95 percent of the cars on the streets of Vladivostok are Japanese. The Government is trying to change that by putting VERY high tarrifs on imports--mostly Japanese. The Russian car industry is kinda where the U.S. industry was in the early 70's. Eventually the Government will figure out if they want people to buy Russian cars, they will have to build a better car--simple as that. Tarrifs are not going to work, people are still importing some Japanese cars. The numbers are much lower than pre-tarrif but Japanese cars are still coming in. A year before the tarrifs went into effect the port of Vladivostok processed over 190,000 cars! This year, only 18,000 cars; again imports are much lower but people are not buying Russian cars.

I am trying to conveince them that they need to look at American cars, especially the guys who use their cars for drag racing (dual purpose--daily driver and weekend racer).

If we can get a Fox Body Mustang over here and show them what they can do with a Mustang, I think the market will be wide open to American cars, parts, etc.

I'll keep you guys updated on progress.
