SUCCESSOR TO DOUG WALCZAK NAMED: I spoke for the first time today with Jeff Nichols, the new Global Fleet and Limo/Livery Manager for Ford Motor Company.
He started his new position Jan. 5, and succeeds Doug Walczak, who works down the hall from him at Ford's Detroit-area headquarters. Jeff will attend his first International LCT Show later this month, and looks forward to his crash course in the industry. Be sure to say hello and meet him at the Ford display on the show floor.
Jeff brings auto industry experience too extensive to mention here, so we'll save it for Driving Force, our e-newsletter that gets blasted out Wednesday afternoons. Of course, I couldn't resist asking Jeff about the successor to the venerable Town Car, to which he replied, "The Yugo. With floorboards." So no new developments yet on the vehicle to replace the Town Car after model year 2010, but we know this industry is getting a Ford rep with a smart sense of humor. Best wishes to Jeff. -- M.R.
