If there was ever a sign that Ford has really turned a corner with its latest financial results maybe it is the renewed buying interest of Kirk Kerkorian. This is the guy who took a hosing with his DCX shares (and lost a court case for compensation) and more recently failed to engineer control of GM via manoueverings involving Carlos Ghosn.
