Old Ford T-Shirt

"They still make engines at the Ford Motor Company's plant at Dagenham, Essex. But the car making era, which began in 1931, is long gone. The 'glory days' happened before my time, but my dad and granddad remember it well.

"All the staff at the plant got a heavy discount on cars, so naturally they pretty much all drove Ford cars. Anglias, Consuls, Classics, Capris, Cortina, Zephyr, Zodiacs and many other models. My granddad said that when you drove past the factory on the (old) A13 headed east towards Southend-on-Sea or west towards London, you could glance over at a sea of vehicles of all shapes, sizes and colours awaiting despatch, and everywhere there was smoke and movement and noise and activity. Entire families were Ford families. Kids followed their mums and dads into the factory, and although it was often monotonous, it was nevertheless a good life for most folk and provided wages, security, comradeship, and many other fringe benefits.

"Then suddenly it was all over. Ford 'rationalised' production and had the cars built on mainland Europe, and instead of employing 50,000 people, employment numbers dropped to around 4,000, and Dagenham was suddenly all the poorer for it.

"Shame.

"Still, there are still millions of lovers of Ford cars, and each year at UK autojumbles and similar events owners turn out in their thousands to display their 'motors'.

"Here's my modest homage to that great era of Ford motor production in the UK.

"Wear it with pride. The nation has earned it."
