Good Ole Girl

I’ve grown up a Ford girl. According to my father and late grandfather if you didn’t drive a Ford, you drove crap! My dad had a beautiful 1997 Ford Explorer and being the daddys girl I am, once I could drive and had saved up some money I wanted for myself a Ford Explorer, in green :) So, I found one on Ebay about 2 hours from my home. I snatched her up and off I was to get her. When I bought my Explorer in 2005 she had 154,000 miles on her and had been used to pull horse trailers in Kentucky. She has been so reliable. There has never once been a time that I have turned the key over and she hasn’t started. She now has almost 390,000 miles on her! I’m amazed and will never buy anything other that a Ford. Someday I’d like to be able to afford a brand new one. :)
