Did I dream it or did Ford make aftershave for a while?

Postby Major_Tom » Sat Oct 28, 2017 1:15 pm

..in the 80s? To go with the cars? Or am I just getting confused with the Old Spice Capri?

Googled it and in the US they made some for all sorts like the 64' Mustang. A Ford Capri was sponsored by Brut, I have a pic of it somewhere.
