What's your story?
Everybody's got one. But the stories that come from those who own a Ford just happen to be a little more interesting. Maybe we're partial, but we know what we like. And we like to hear from each other about our driving experiences. So we can laugh, learn, let it out, and... what else? You tell us.

I have a 2001 Ford Ranger Edge with a 4.0 and a 5 speed transmission. It has 276,000 miles on it and I drove it out of state for 400 miles about 70-75 mph. I checked my gas mileage twice and it was 20-21 mpg! The amazing thing is--it will still burn rubber at the red light. I am a proud Ford owner!!
