200,000 Miles On Synthetic Oil!

I purchased this explorer on 11/24/2001. I had just blown a radiator in my Taurus. My friend said AL, said ” come on down and we will find you a vehicle”!
I noticed this shiny dark brown machine sitting in the corner of the dealers yard,
and asked him if I could take it for a ride? He said “get it gassed down back and
have at it”. It had 24,231? miles on it. Sadly my buddy Al has passed. The SUV
that he placed in my hands that day reminds me of our friendship, lasting and
true in our professional and personal lives. I use the vehicle to spin donuts when
it snows, or transport softball equipment when the sun is out. It is still fun to drive, even though my buddy is not here to see it.
