A new website has cropped up to attempt to lure Ford CEO Alan Mulally back to Seattle. Evidently someone at Boeing is missing the guy's ability to steer a company in the right direction. The recently launched site features a short list of Mulally's achievements since he's taken the tiller at FoMoCo, all spread out on a Boeing 787 Dreamliner background.
We can imagine more than a few souls at the aircraft manufacturer are pining for the good old days. Boeing has seen delay after delay in the launch of its carbon-fiber Dreamliner leviathan, while Ford continues to make its cousins in Detroit look bad. The Blue Oval posted a $2.7 billion net profit last year, snapping the company out of a downward trend three-years in the making. While Mulally certainly didn't carry the company on his own, it's clear he has made some smart decisions during his time at the helm, and now he's become the poster child for Ford's recent successes.

According to Automotive News, BringAlanBack.com isn't associated with either Ford or Boeing, and no one is saying who owns the site at the moment.
