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 remember when my Dad first purchased the Expedition back in Nov of 2000. It was probably the biggest and best looking SUV of that time and I have to admit I was quite intimidated when I had to learn to drive with so much truck. The Expedition has been a part of so many important trips in our lives
