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.

Coming from a GM family, I remember apologizing to my grandpa that for my last pinewood derby car I crafted a fastback black mustang with flames and tinfoil chrome accents. Not only did I win best of show, but the car proved to be one of the fastest in the pack's competition. Many years later in
