Dearborn, MI - Ford Motor Company is revving up for its centennial anniversary with a spectacular car show and a concert series highlighted by country music superstar Toby Keith.

It's all part of Ford's 100th birthday celebration in its hometown of Dearborn, Mich., from June 12 - 16, 2003.

THE ROAD IS OURS gala will include a display of classic cars and trucks from all Ford brands - Ford, Lincoln, Mercury, Aston Martin, Jaguar, Land Rover, Mazda and Volvo - as well as current models and concept cars.

The concert series headlined by Toby Keith will also feature Motown, rock and other styles of popular music. The events will include interactive displays and exhibits, a fireworks display and tours of a Ford factory.

Ford will also issue a special edition centennial package of five vehicles (Focus, Mustang, Taurus, Explorer, F-250), build six 1914 Model T replicas and fully restore Ford's 20-millionth vehicle - a 1931 Model A. The company's 2003 Shareholder's Meeting will be moved to June 16th - the date the company was founded in 1903.

Ford has approximately 350,000 employees and operates in more than 200 markets on six continents. For more information, visit www.ford.com.
