It Runs In The Family
OCT
16

For as long as I can remember I have been a Ford guy, I guess it comes from my dad being a diesel mechanic at a Ford dealer since I was a baby. I have always heard stories of me telling people there chevys and dodges were junk because they werent Fords at the age of 4 and 5. I have been able to get my whole family into Ford’s, between my aunts, uncles, and cousins there are a total of 21 Fords ranging from a 1978 F-150 to a 2008 Edge! There are 3 Taurus’s, 2 Rangers, 8 F-150’s (1978-2008), 1 Mustang GT, 3 2001 Focus’s (Mine just turned 150,000 miles today!!) 1 F-350 V-10, 1 Bronco, 1 Explorer, and a New Edge! When I turned 15 I was able to start washing cars at the local Ford Dealership and it is awesom getting to drive the lastest and greatest cars out there, and seeing the transformation Ford has made in the last few years!! When I was 16 I was able to buy my dads 1994 F-150 that he had owned for the last eight years and 90k miles. I love this truck and fully plan on keeping it for the rest of my life and passing it down to my kids! Then for my highschool senior project I bought a 1978 F-150 and totally rebuilt both the engine and transmission and have another built ford tough truck in the family! So as you can see Ford blue runs deep in the my family! Keep up the good work Ford, and thanks for the awesome cars!

We would love to be able to watch and or Follow our new Edge being built online here in Orlando, FL. On January 22, 2014 we were struck by a drunk driver, hitting us on the passenger side back door where our 20 month old was sitting in his car seat. Because of the way the Edge was built it saved our son. I am including proof of how well our Edge was built and how wonderful the way She (Our Edge A.K.A Blue) held up. The drunk driver that slammed into us also decided to Run not caring if he hurt or killed anyone. Drunk driver was tracked down by a witness but was not arrested.Because of the way our 2013 Ford Edge Limited held up and did in fact keep all of Her passengers Safe My wife and I have decided to induct another 2014 Ford Edge Limited with EcoBoost Ruby Red into our family. And will remain Ford Customer's for Life.Thank You So Much FordJayson, Summer, Zachary, & Zander.
