Mission #4: Fiesta Book Mobile

Social Activism Month!

For our 4th Fiesta Movement Mission, we helped The Friends of the Brighton District Library move their donated books to off-site storage. While that might not sound like much, volunteering like this is a major help to libraries across the country.

Many libraries do not receive enough state funds to operate. They rely on donations and volunteers from the community. The Friends of the Brighton District Library raise more funds each year than The Library receives from the State of Michigan. Without them, The Library could not continue to fund all the wonderful programs and events they provide for local children.

If there is a local library in your heart, take the time to donate your used books, or even your time, to help keep them going strong.

The Ford Fiesta is NOT a Festiva!

When we tell everyone about the new Ford Fiesta, they think we're talking about the Festiva. We don't want you to make the same mistake.

On the left you will find the stunning Ford Fiesta -- on the right is a ratty old Festiva. (Hood scoop gives it a few points.) No comparison!

Just wanted to make that clear.

Gearing up for Mission #4

It's taken us a while to get back in the groove after vacation. Even after working non-stop, we still haven't put a dent in all the things we have to accomplish. And August is almost over! Where on earth did Summer go?

We usually take a trip to Lake Michigan at least once a year. Not so this year. We hope to make it in the next month or two, but time and $$ aren't on our side. This has definitely been a lean year for us -- probably for many of you too. It helps to have free gas for six months. Not to mention the added bonus of FUN on the road. (Seriously, we can't get out of this car without huge grins on our faces!) We hope September and October go by a little slower. We're not looking forward to saying goodbye to the Fiesta. How we wish we had the freedom to drive all over the US, but I guess that's a mission for other agents.

Tomorrow we hit our 4th mission for Social Activism month. We're lending our Fiesta to the Friends of the Brighton Library. We'll be hauling donated books and documenting our adventure. Should be lots of fun.

Haven't taken too many photos lately, but we have a ton of footage we need to edit from the past few weeks. Videos in the works: a few more NASCAR shorts, power-shifting the Fiesta, happy test drivers, fun at the country fair, and more.

We're Back!

Wow, sorry we've been gone for a while. Vacation was great, thanks for asking!

We've got a few new videos up our sleeves, but won't be able to get them up until next week. In the meantime, enjoy a few photos from our jaunt to good ol' Missouri. (Just click the photo below)
