A dedicated optimist, who’s opening a Rotunda quick-lube facility in September, and invested about $500,000 in the Roscommon dealership expansion and updating, McNamara says he feels confident about Ford’s future as winner of the President’s Award three years in a row and a Blue Oval honoree to boot. Ford now respects the small dealers who, after all, are its ambassadors as well as its front-line customers, says McNamara. As Ford’s youngest dealer, McNamara has weathered the storms which clouded Ford dealer relations during the “Dealer Collection” and retrenchment period of the late 1990s. “Ford helped me grow, and I’m deeply appreciative to them and Ford Credit,” he says. “They have a lot of cool products in the pipeline, and I’m happy to be part of the Ford story down the road.”

Scheele, who drove a Lincoln Aviator up to Traverse City from Dearborn’s Glass House HQ, didn’t stop to chat with Scott McNamara. But if he had, he would have seen and heard first-hand why those who so flippantly write off the Big Three should first take the time to drop by the McNamaras who sell F-150s, Silverados, and Rams in town like Roscommon, Gladwin, and Grayling, USA. —Mac Gordon
