I found this tape years ago, however where I found it I cannot recall. Being a self-proclaimed car nut I am always instantly drawn to automotive memorabilia and definitely when it ties in with any of my other interests; music, film or computer software.

Unfortunately I cannot find much of any information about this promotion. I have found a few adverts on YouTube from the late 80s that use the slogan Ford Cares which appears to be a marketing objective to demonstrate how much the Ford Motor Company cares for the environment and you as the consumer. It could be assumed that the tape was given away with the sale of maybe a new Ford Fiesta or another car popular for 1992.

There are two other releases that are on Discogs – a Dance/Soul collection and a Classical Collection (the latter which has shots of an early gen 1 Ford Mondeo).
