Putting History Back on the Road

Ford restores Terry Fox van

On the same day it was reported that up to 430 manufacturing jobs may be headed the way of the Galaxie, the Ford Motor Company gave Canadians a pretty thoughtful gift.

28 years after the incomparable Marathon of Hope, Ford has restored the 1980 Econoline Van given to Fox as a gift.

While it's probably of little comfort to the Windsor-area workers who will be out of work once Ford sorts out who is and isn't to be laid off, the restoration of the Terry Fox van is priceless beyond words.
