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 in-laws were all Ford owners because my sister-in-law worked at a Ford plant building their trucks. And I recall some years ago when Explorers were in the news because of rollovers, the cause of which Firestone and Ford exchanged pointed fingers. While, to me, Ford's position seemed a bit more
