 DEARBORN, Mich., Jan. 31 /PRNewswire/ -- Ford Motor Company (NYSE: F) and Universal Computer Systems (UCS) of Houston announced today that the UCS subsidiary, Ford Dealer Computer Services (FDCS), has purchased Ford's Dealer Computer Services business.
 Employees at both companies were notified of the transaction earlier this month.
