I spent the afternoon at Ford Fest 2017 which took place at the ancestral Forde (or Ford, it’s a matter of controversy) family farm (and was introduced there to Jocelyn Buttimer whose husband is a descendant of one of Henry Mk1's brothers and who has the farm now) and there encountered many Forde (or Ford, I said it’s controversial) things. We also get an opportunity to note that the camera on my newly acquired s/h Nexus phone is rather worse than that of its older Samsung predecessor.

A posh Forde. It must be posh, because we note an “automatic” badge below the number plate. Not many of those were ever sold. No, I don’t know why the Ghia badge isn’t in line.
