A former Ford employee who got left behind on the Way Forward is suing the automaker, saying that age discrimination led to his termination. 51 year-old William Armstrong, formerly an engineer at Ford's Dearborn headquarters, had worked at the company since 1978. As a noise, vibration and harshness specialist, he credits himself among the individuals responsible for the new Mustang's unique exhaust note -- you know, "the throaty V-8 growl that William Clay Ford Jr. claims he likes," according to Armstrong.

Armstrong and his lawyer hope the suit will gain class-action status -- the third class-action Armstrong's lawyer is responsible for bringing against Ford for age discrimination. Meanwhile, Ford maintains that its lay-offs were conducted within the law and were the result of some very difficult decisions.
