The paranoia comes not from what the intended use is for the black box but
what some dufus will eventually use the black box for:

ex: Insurance uses data to circumvent to their uses to 'not' pay for an
accident
ex: Dealer wipes out data to force a customer payment verses a factory or
dealer warranty payment.

ex: John Doe uses your black box to sue you even if he was driving without
insurance and wasn't supposed to be on the road to start with...

Not that any of these ideas will or will not come to fruition, but it's what
generally happens in a country thats quick to sue the other guy. Who's
usually some hard working stiff barely getting by because of all the
expensive insurance rates he pays because of all the 'uninsured' guys out
there suing the pants off the rest of us.

Just my idea of what those boxes could be used for,
C.K.

Can't the wrench be used on the camcorder too?

Probably less a 'Ford' problem than the fact that most of the 70's - 80's
vehicles were crap - the 86-88 time frame is about when the quality (at least
for Ford) started to dramatically improve.
