The salesman and other staff were friendly knowledgeable and efficient. Would recommend the dealership. I got a good deal and the selection was outstanding. I live on Vancouver Island and the price was better here.

From first contact to the end, it was a smooth and awesome experience at Key West Ford. I inquired to the sales rep Kai through AutoTrader the day before about a 2008 Jeep Patriot. Within hours I got a response, and we scheduled a test drive next day. Following day Kai was awesome and texted me his ETA to the dealership, and made sure I was taken care of before I even came in. The test ride was smooth, and I loved the car and price. The finance rep Gurj was also fantastic, worked around some technicalities with the financing and got me on the road in no time. Within a few hours, everything was sealed and I drove home with the Jeep. Thank you Kai, Gurj, and everyone else who took care of me today. I appreciate the transparency, friendliness, and professionalism from everyone.

Peter, while on his day off (what salesperson ever has a day off LOL) spent the entire day trying to find the best fit for us in a used vehicle. After shovelling many cars covered in a foot of snow, we realized that Peter was willing to shovel the whole lot if we could find what we were looking for. What really impressed us was not only his knowledge of the vehicles and the new technology but his desire to find us the vehicle best suited to our needs. Peter helped us narrow down the search and test drive suitable vehicles till we found this comfortable and economical vehicle with more options than we asked for. All the staff involved in our search were friendly, courteous and very helpful

Buying a truck from Key West Ford was a positive experience.

Buying our used truck from Key West Ford turned out to be a hassle free experience for my wife and me. The sales person, Jag Dhillon, and the two managers, Ivan Matulik and Michael Nokes, were professional, courteous and friendly. We encountered no high pressure sales tactics. We also were appreciative of the fact that Ivan allowed us to take the truck to our own mechanic for an inspection and appraisal. The vehicle was more than fairly priced and was in excellent mechanical shape. Their detail crew had the 2010 F150 looking like new. We would have no problem recommending Key West Ford to others.

Vancouver: Learn How The ‘Peanuts’ Gang Launched The Ford Falcon

Tags:
(Posted on Jul 20, 2018 at 03:13PM by Lee Byard)
In 1950 the world was introduced to the Peanuts gang - an enthusiastic (if not somewhat obtuse) group of children, led by the bald-headed Charlie Brown and his clever beagle, Snoopy. Their adventures were comical; their troubles were relatable; and they spawned a comic-strip empire that would span decades.

They also helped to launch the Ford Falcon.

In 1959 the Big Blue Oval intended to bring a new car to the market - the Falcon. This four-door sedan boasted six-passenger styling and smooth coil-spring performance, branding it a perfect family ride. The dealerships were already crowded, however, with established competitors; and it would be no simple task to carve a sales niche.

This is why Ford sought the talents of Charles Schulz - creator of Peanuts. His comic-strip was acclaimed across the globe, with millions of readers seeking out the daily adventures of Linus, Lucy, and the rest. If the company could appeal to such a broad demographic, then its Falcon had a far greater chance of succeeding.

As CBR explains, executives met with the notoriously private Schulz - pleading with him to lend the Peanuts team to their campaign. To the amazement of critics and ad-men alike, the animator… agreed. It seems that his father owned a Ford and he had fond childhood memories of the open road.

It was this loyalty that led Schulz to create a series of commercials for the Ford Falcon - each featuring his beloved Peanuts gang. Take a peek at one below!



What do you think of the Falcon’s unique advertising strategy, Vancouver? Does it make you want to seek out a summer highway… and a comic strip? Share your opinions with us today!
