It was at the height of the Greece debt crisis and saw some quite heavy protests. Not following Greece al that much, I am afraid, but still one of the nicest countries to visit.

Ford has decided long ago to make "world cars" starting with the Ford Mondeo, and you have the Ford Focus of course, both of these are clearly European cars sold globally, not US cars. Same with the vans, in fact the European vans have replaced the US ones, in the US itself.

I knew Ford made some cars for the European market, but didn't realize how extensive the operation was.
