Richard Jenson posted this in another thread, I thought it was useful enough to get its own thread here for reference.
Below is a list of Ford's final assembly plants (both current and former) and their respective abbreviations. Hopefully this clears up any confusion for those who don't know and see people bringing them up in conversation.
