"Sneath said he doesn't have any big plans for the money, but noted none will go toward buying a big, new foreign car."
I saw an interview with the couple and actually his wife interjected at this point that she wanted a Mercedes. :lol:
Good for him!!! Todays Free Press:
"Michigan's newest multimillionaire is a loyal Ford guy after all.
David Sneath of Livonia, winner of Tuesday's $136-million Mega Millions jackpot, said -- contrary to a story in Friday's Free Press -- that he will buy Ford vehicles, after working 34 years for the automaker. He also said Friday that he may get back together with his ex-wife, Deborah Sneath, declaring, "I love that girl."
Friday's story incorrectly quoted Sneath, saying he would not buy a "Ford product" when asked whether he would purchase a luxury car. In fact, he said he would not buy a "foreign product." But his answer was misunderstood by reporters for the Free Press and the Associated Press, which also misquoted him.
"I worked 34 years for them; I'm not going to turn my back on them," said Sneath, who drove a hi-lo at a Ford parts warehouse in Brownstown Township. He said he is done working and has submitted his retirement paperwork.
Sneath, 60, said he plans to buy himself a Lincoln Navigator, his 22-year-old son a Ford Explorer and his ex-wife a Ford, but she hasn't picked a model."
