Photograph used in St. Thomas Times-Journal article published August 12, 1980 with caption: "The first of Ford Motor Company's all-new 1981 World Cars - the Ford Escort and Mercury Lynx - rolled off the line yesterday at the company's Wayne, Michigan, Assembly Plant. Wayne's 'Job One' launch culminated more than five years of research, design and engineering involving the talents of Ford specialists throughout the world. During the 1981 model year, Ford expects to produce 385,000 of the new models in the United States. The St. Thomas Ford Assembly Plant will begin production early in the year of these models." Ford Escort and Mercury Lynx were produced at the Ford St. Thomas Assembly Plant from December 1981 to February 1984.
