rPm Ford-1005.jpgWhen Ford Canada said they had a car they wanted Marion Ross (aka Mrs. C from Happy Days) to drive while she was in Toronto, I don’t think anyone expected it to be a hip little roaster.  But that’s exactly what she got: a supped up, detailed and fully loaded Ford Fiesta.


Both she and her Lost in Yonkers co-star David Eisner have been driving it around town for the past few weeks and when I asked them for first impressions, they unanimously said “fun!”

As it turns out, David’s wife drive a Ford Edge and he says the interiors are almost  identical.  “It feels luxurious, which is surprising for a small car.  It’s easy to drive, especially in the city; it corners well and is a cinch to park.”  Marion jumps in to point out that it’s a smooth drive and is quite fuel-efficient. 

After a bunch of fans stop to take some pictures with everyone’s favourite 70’s TV mom, Marion turns back to me and quickly adds “next time, let’s pick a colour that better matches my hair…”

With a sparkle in her eye and a quick goodbye, she and David are off to a matinee, with their speedy little Ford waiting to take them on their next adventure.

Lost in Yonkers starring Marion Ross plays until June 8th at the St. Lawrence Centre for the Arts in Toronto.
