While touring the Detroit Auto Show on Thursday, Vice President Joe Biden had a special message for Bill Ford Jr., the executive chairman of Ford Motor Company.

"Thank you for saving our ass," Biden said to Ford, according to the print pool report.

(It was unclear what exactly Biden was thanking Ford for).

Biden, a car lover who owns a classic Corvette back home in Delaware, appeared to enjoy himself at the show, checking out everything from a 1965 Mustang to a red Corvette Stingray.

"I'm like a kid in a candy shop," the vice president exclaimed.
