Watch and find out the long history of your Okanagan Ford Dealer - Watkin Motors Ford, serving the Okanagan... for life!
Joe Watkin, the original owner, fell ill in 1960. His family struggled to run the dealership, when Ford approached Ross' grandfather to run the dealership in 1962. Ross is the third generation Blankleys to run the dealership. Jack Blankley, who had worked his way through the ranks at Vernon's GM dealership, and his wife Fern sold everything they had to takeover the dealership in 1962.
Ross's favourite part of Watkin Motors Ford is the fact that it is a family run business. From employees to customers, it's a culture of taking care of each other. Visit the Watkin Motors Ford and become part of the family.
