Morrie’s Buffalo Ford Parts Manager is Surprised by Fellow Employee’s!

Bob Baldwin who is Buffalo Ford’s current parts manager got quite the surprise on Monday, June 10th. Bob’s wife Lisa has been battling stage 4 Cholangio-Carcinoma a rare form of cancer which affects her liver, lungs, and bones. Bob has worked more than 18 years at Buffalo Ford. He is a dedicated employee and a very support husband and father of three children.

About a year and half ago Bob’s van broken down and was unable to make the necessary repairs to get the van going again. Over the last few weeks, on days Bob was not working with the help of volunteered technicians and many others. Bob’s van received a new engine and a cleaning inside and out and top to bottom.  Always parking the van back in the same spot to make sure Bob would not catch onto the surprise that was finally revealed on Monday, June 10th. Here is a short video of Bob’s reaction!

MN Cars & Coffee June 2013

Summer has finally arrived and the weather actually cooperated for Cars & Coffee this past Saturday. Though we were forecasting a rainy week the sun decided to make an appearance just long enough for us to have a great event. The turnout was the best we have seen yet this year, since we had been battling a long winter and non-existent spring.

This Cars & Coffee event was extra special for the Morrie’s Automotive Group, The Make-A-Wish Foundation and Matthew. Early in January we partnered with the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Minnesota to help grant Matthew’s wish of having his 1968 Dodge Charger restored. We were thrilled to be able to get involved with the foundation to help with the restoration. After 5 long months Matthew’s car is finally complete and we surprised him with it on Friday. He brought the vehicle out to Cars and Coffee on Saturday and it was quite the hit. Spectators flocked to the vehicle to take a peek under the hood and get the chance to meet Matthew.

We were so happy that Matthew was able to bring his Charger out for a full house to see at the automotorplex. Check out some of our photos and video below to check out some of the other great cars that were at the event. Make sure to head out to the Automotorplex for MN C&C next month, historically July has the largest turnout of the season! For more information visit www.mncandc.com.
