Ford CEO Alan Mulally Calls TTAC
No biggie. A social call to one of our writers, thanking him for the infotainment. Needless to say, we tried to get Big Al to tell us something, anything newsworthy. Nada. Not a sausage. Still, I remember when I started this website. Back in the day, Peter DeLorenzo hyped his Autoextremist site with banners proclaiming “Bob Reads It,” “Rick reads it” and… what was it again? “Tom?” “Dieter?” I wondered if a) it was true and b) TTAC would ever gain sufficient prominence to catch the ear of the ultimate insiders. So, anyway, it’s another milestone for TTAC. Suffice it to say, talking to the industry swells will not give us swell heads. We will never forget that our first, indeed our only obligation is to you, our readers. In that spirit, when we hit the North American International Auto Show, we will do our level best to report the truth about cars. As always. Meanwhile, if Mr. Mulally could call us back re: an interview, I’d be most appreciative.
