    Default First Ford Fiesta heading up the autoroad today

    My friend is 1 of 100 people selected to drive a Ford Fiesta this year. He has it for a few months and his first "mission" is to drive up Mt Washington, which he's doing today.

    Keep an eye out for a lime green car that you've never seen before (picture on the link)

    BTW: Any pictures, or posts related to the Fiesta (on twitter, flickr, etc) end up on the Ford homepage, so you guys might want to check it out, could get some PR for the obs.

    Although it would be cool to get some PR out of this, we have to see how this would affect our partnership with Subaru.

    I thought about that after I posted. I only saw 2 pictures from his trip, so I don't know if he actually drove it to the summit.

    It did come to the summit and from what I heard (maybe Brian or Scot can clear this up more), they can use footage of us but can't directly say their car is promoted by the obs or better than another car. We will have to see what comes about from it.

    Maybe they can claim to be as good as the first car to make it to the top on August 31, 1899.
