Thanks to the Romeo Niche Line Engine Team!

I just wanted to publicly say "THANKS" to the team at the Romeo Niche Engine line in Romeo, MI.

 

Last year I met Tom in person who is one of the guys who sells niche line shirts for charity. Tom mentioned that they sometimes give tours for us enthusiasts. For those of you who have not purchased one - you should...

This year when my family came to town, I contacted Tom who set me up with the Niche Line Manager who coordinated the visit. My Dad, Brother, Father-in-law and I got a personal tour and photo on the line (and I even drove my car into the building next to the line)!

 

As an even better surprise, one of my engine builders (Bill), was working that day and I got my picture with him (see attached - probably obvious but I'm the "walking billboard" with the hat and shirt)

 

I can't begin to express the Pride that these people have for what they do AND that it is done right here in the USA by a great team of dedicated professionals. I am a proud owner of my car, a brand warrior, and a Ford shareholder.

WAAAYYYY cool. Did you get some extra engine plaques from your builders? Vito Duoba gave me a couple that I used for my wall plaque and new blue valve covers. Missing in the pic is my other builder Jim Donovan, who had just retired.
