Back in 1960 our family lived in Geelong, near Melbourne, Australia. My father, John McIntyre, worked for Ford, and we had moved from Canada two years previously when Dad assumed the position of Managing Director of Ford Australia. One of the projects was the introduction of the Falcon to Australia, and the opening of a new manufacturing plant in Broadmeadows. This photo shows him, second from left, shaking hands with Ford executives. View full size.
