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.

My Ford Taurus has been in my family since 1998 - it's a 1997 GL (which means close to base model) with a mere 28K miles on it... I first received the vehicle (given to me by mom) after a frontal collision with a man who ran a red light. The Taurus held up so well with minimal damage, and to that we
