About This Article

There are only a few companies that become true household words — and fewer still that have become icons for generations. The Ford Motor Company is one of those organizations. The modern automobile age began with Ford in 1903, and it is still one of the best-known, best-regarded companies in the world. If you're looking for a rebuild project in your garage, a focus for your automobile collection, or are in the market for an "everyday" vehicle, we've collected 27 reasons why you should turn your attention to the Blue Oval. 

For decades, Ford has managed to construct vehicles that are both beautiful and practical and has been rewarded for that effort by an intense fanbase and an enduring presence in the automotive market. The F-150 is a prime example of this: Not only is it one of the best-looking pickups in the marketplace, but it has been the best-selling vehicle (not truck — vehicle) in the U.S. since the 1980s. You don't get that kind of market share by chasing trends; you get those results by creating trends. 

Do you see yourself finding a classic Mustang that needs some love and coaxing back into being the thing of beauty it was created to be? Or would you rather start with a Ford GT and keep it in racing shape? Maybe you want to find that Thunderbird you learned to drive with and bring a bit of your past into the present. Whatever the case, here are 27 Fords that will make your garage one of the favorite rooms in your house!
