Detroit Man Who Walks 21 Miles To Work Receives Ford Taurus

February 9th, 2015

DetroitMansTaurusThe team at Borgman Ford was touched — like those worldwide who’d come across the viral social media grassroots campaign — by the story of James Robertson, the Detroit man who walks 21 miles to and from work every day and has been doing so for 10 years. In particular, we loved Robertson’s reaction when he received a new Ford Taurus after a GoFundMe campaign collected more than $300,000 to support the 56-year-old man with the undefeated attendance and work-ethic.

“The reason I picked the Taurus, I remember the old Taurus from the 1980s,” Robertson said. “They never were this fancy or anything, but like me they have a strong heart from the inside.”

Gotta love the guy. Kudos to Robertson, and the young Wayne State student, Evan Leedy, who started the crowd sourcing fund. It’s nice to see social media used to make a difference! Read or watch the full story at

Why He Loves The New Ford Transit
“The new Transit gives me the versatility and payload that I need to run my pest control routes. We have a custom made stainless steel tank that holds 100 gallons of water and covers the entire floor in the back. We built storage compartments on the tank for sprayers, mole traps, and supplies.

The backup camera allows us to park vehicles within 4 inches of each other, which allows me to park one extra vehicle in each of my bays. The Bluetooth takes our navigation from our phones and broadcasts it on the speakers. I have been looking for a vehicle like this for several years and this fits all my needs. That is why I ordered a second one as soon as I took possession of my first one.”

Way to go Jim! And for those looking for a healthy lawn, check out Tuff Turf Molebusters  (616) 554-9499

Congratulations to Audrey TeBos, Winner of the $5,000 Giveaway!

December 13th, 2013

audreytebos_winnerAudrey TeBos not only got a “new best friend” when she purchased her Ford Focus SE last month…to her surprise she also received a nest egg to help launch her career.

At first, the recent Grand Valley State University graduate  thought the multiple messages from Borgman Ford’s Matt Cameron were an unusually enthusiastic  follow-up to her recent purchase. But when she found out that in fact she’d won $5,000 in Borgman’s Cash Giveaway, to say she was shocked would be an understatement.

“I couldn’t believe it. I had to pinch myself. In fact, I still can hardly believe it,”  the 24-year-old said Friday when she visited the dealership to pick up her check.

The cash couldn’t come at a better time for Audrey. As a GVSU graduate who majored in Sports Management, she’s on a countrywide search for the perfect job to launch her career in collegiate athletics.

“I may have to to move for employment purposes, so this will help make for a very good start,” she said.

The team at Borgman is delighted that the Cash Giveaway winner turned out to be a young graduate starting out, and that the money will help launch her job search and ultimate career move.

“This is just like watching someone open a great gift on Christmas morning,” said Matt Borgman, General Manager, after meeting with Audrey to deliver her check.

Audrey’s brother, Chris, has other ideas about what she should do with her winfall, centering around gift-giving. He’d like a PS4 in his stocking. However, Audrey thinks sister-Santa may not be squandering her new-found nest-egg on games when things like rent and relocation loom.

Chicago Woman Still Owns First Mustang Ever Sold in U.S.

October 21st, 2013

chicagomustangThe folks at Borgman Ford thought our Mustang fans would enjoy this story from Ford Social — the woman who as a college grad bought the first Mustang ever sold in the U.S. still has it — and still drives it! How cool is that? Bet our friends at the Mustang Club would love to connect with Gail Wise! We’re gearing up to celebrate 50 years of the iconic muscle car, which officially went to market in April 1964.

By Tori Tellem
Ford Social

Gail Wise walked into a Ford dealership looking for a convertible to drive around Chicago, where she lived and worked after having just graduated from college. They didn’t have any such models, save for one car tucked quietly away in back. She bought it on the spot.

It wasn’t until the moment she drove it off the lot that she had an inkling she might be behind the wheel of something special. Two days later that was confirmed: Almost 50 years ago, and two days before it officially went on the market, Gail took ownership of the very first Ford Mustang sold in the U.S. Read the rest of this entry »

Courage Talks for Ford Warriors in Pink Campaign

October 21st, 2013 to the team at Ford for it’s “Courage Talks” initiative whereby breast cancer survivors reach out to share their stories with others. On behalf of Borgman Ford, we’d love it if you’d take a moment to read this Ford Social story that explain the Models of Courage program and gives links to video messages meant to inspire those whose lives are touched by breast cancer.

It takes a warrior’s courage to fight breast cancer. It takes a warrior’s dedication to deal with the everyday triumphs and stumbling blocks. It takes a warrior’s strength to fight, day in and day out, 365 days a year. It takes a warrior to face the adversity that is cancer.

The Warriors in Pink “Models of Courage” program is just one of the ways that the organization brings to light the real life stories of breast cancer survivors. The nine women and two men selected to serve as Models of Courage come from different cities, different cultures, and different generations. They are married, single, working moms and retired grandparents. In their roles as Warriors in Pink Models of Courage, they serve as ambassadors for Ford and the fight against breast cancer, sharing their very personal stories of hope and survival, reaching out to others in need of support and encouragement.
