Jimmy Gibson from Elgin recently took delivery of his 47th Ford for his wife Vee from Macrae & Dick. Mr Gibson passed his driving test in 1961 in a Ford Consul MK1 and has never looked back.

His love of Ford’s has continued throughout his life and he first became a customer of Macrae & Dick in 1988, 3 years after Macrae & Dick took on the Ford franchise in Elgin.

Mr Gibson’s range of Ford’s is a great example of Ford’s development through the 20th and 21st Century.
Mr Gibson said ‘I am delighted with our latest Ford Fiesta. My love of the Ford brand started when I passed my driving test and has continued throughout my driving career. Here’s to many more happy years motoring.’
