Where Has Your Ford Taken You?

By Cole Q.

For the past couple of months, we’ve been recruiting the best on-site photographer we know: You! With a different theme every few weeks, we’re asking you to share photos of how you live life with your Ford.

Now we want you to upload photos of your dirty Ford. That’s right, show us the road salt, mud, grime, dust, dirt or whatever. We want to see your best anti-clean.

While you ponder your mission, take some time to enjoy the photo slide show above of some of our favorite pics uploaded when we asked you to share where your Ford has taken you. We have to admit, from trips down Route 66 to beautiful nature retreats, we’re jealous.

Don’t miss your opportunity to share your best dirt with us. Click here to visit the Ford Facebook page and upload your favorite dirty Ford pic!

Pretty soon my Explorer Sport Trac will be taking me to a Nissan or Toyota dealer since the new Ford Ranger isn't available in the US.

Our 2011 F150 SCrew EcoBoost takes us to the Shenandoah River three weekends a month. Dirt roads, hills,and hauling. We average 18.7 mpg all over. 19mpg @ 80mph. The truck gets power washed every week before we drive home, cuz' it's covered in mud. The Ecoboost and Selectrac transmission are incredible. 32k miles in one year. Miles of dirt roads. Not one rattle. These roads made every panel in my Tahoe shutter after 2,000 miles. Came from a GM family. I'm a convert. Fords are World Class. Bought an '11 MKT. Same thing, Awesome.

I had a 2004 f 150 5.4 triton with 293,230 when I traded it in I never had 1 break down I traded it in on a 2011 f 150 ford ecoboost I only got 9000 miles on it but it has plenty of power to work when I'm pulling an awesome fuel mileage it's like having your cake and eating it too !! FORD BUILT WITH OUT YOUR TAX DOLLARS!!!!!

My 2003 Ford Escape just hit the 300,000 mile mark! woo hoo! It has taken me many many places, but most often to work of course! I love it and it still runs very well! I will drive it 'until death do us part" and will probably look at getting another one.
Jo Conley Robinson 02/27/2012
My husband's 2000 Ford Escort ZX2 will trip 300,000 miles this week or next. Never any motor trouble and he just put new tires on it back in the fall.
Adam S 02/26/2012
with almost 200k miles on my 2001 F250 V10 Crewcab it would be easier to list the places It hasnt been. I did take a trip this week I would like to note. Went to the ford dealership to see if i could get a 2nd truck to ease the burden on my old V 10 went home empty handed. The V-8 gas isn't an option f or a working man and the diesel well its nice but i just like my V10 . Bring it back for 2013 and I'll put one in my driveway as soon as I can.
Kevin Hull 02/24/2012
I would like to show some pic.BUT my 2002 f-250 v-10 W/ 60000 mi. on can't drive.Why u ask my exhaust man. rusted away. Aluminum heads/steel bolts.My truck is clean I took good care of it.Sits in my drive way. Don,t have the money to fix it yet FORD.

Porque no BRASIL um FORD KA não é de fato um carro popular? porque temos que pagar sempre o dobro do preço alem de obtermos sempre menor qualidade? será que não somos merecedores do nosso produto?---------------------------------------------------------------------- O campeão do preço alto, no país do norte, é o Ford Fiesta, chamado aqui de Fiesta Sedan. A versão de entrada, chamada First, só vem com motor 1,6-litro. Custa 123,2 mil pesos, ou R$ 18.939. A mais cara, a Trend, sai por 171,4 mil pesos, ou R$ 26.348. O 1-litro, aqui, começa em R$ 32.055. Detalhe: no México, o Fiesta é oferecido com a opção de câmbio automático. Por aqui, PPDs e taxistas adorariam a opção. Mas não têm. Por quê?

The closest to having a Ford of my own is that I showed my son a 2006 Ford Focus Ghia STW and he bought it. In many ways a nice car. Powerful, compact but with lots of transporting capacity when you need it.
Rob Schneider 02/23/2012

Vigorone Mse 02/23/2012
My f450 turbo diesel is the best I went from palm springs ca to davis ca and drove right back with my power very available with each step of the gas ...... Ford is the best ..... BUILT FORD TUFF
Charlie Chacon 02/23/2012
471K ON the 99 F250, that alone says enough! People that complain about problems are probably whining about a little dirt on the fender, "OMG my car has a little dirt on it, what do I do?" Haha FORD for life! BTW FORD has a model for every age group, focus/fiesta for the teens through college, mustang for the college grad, fusions, Taurus for the starting of a family, Lincolns for the yes I finally kicked the kids out group through retirement!
Bobbie Fritts 02/23/2012

Everywhere I needed to go, everywhere I wanted to go, many places I shouldn't have gone, the Chebbies thought if there's tire tracks, they could go there too. Boy, were they ever wrong! lol Over 300,000 miles on the '74 Bronco when I sold it 5 yrs ago. 302, AT, PS, roll cage, 3 gas tanks (rear, and one under each side), Lockers in the back, tru-trac in the front, heavy duty custom bumpers, Warn premium hubs, disc brakes, oil cooler........ the list goes on and on!
Just one of many Fords in my corral over the years.....

my 97 mountaineer has taken me many places.
my favorite place so far was MIS for a sprint cup race.
as soon as i get my third gen mountaineer, this one will be getting a 2" inch lift, 33's, and a roll cage to do a little high speed off-roading.
Bruce Solomon 02/23/2012
I went 154,000 miles with my 1987 Escort GT with only $300.00 worth of repairs. I even ran my X over with it and it didn't dent.

My only complaint about my Raptor is that it goes so well in the snow that it's boring!
Nathan Langford 02/23/2012
Haven't owned a Ford in quite some time. I just bought a 2011 VW GTI. I gave Ford heavy consideration, looking at Focuses, Mustangs, Fiestas, Fusions and Tauruses.

I like the exteriors of all of these cars. Ford, you've done a great job on the outside. But why are the interiors so plain and miserably ugly and boring?

And when you're not being boring, you're way too over the top! The Ford Focus Titanium would have been PERFECT if it hadn't had brash, blue-colored stripes running down the ivory seats! I'm 27, not 17! I wanted an up-scale-ish Focus with some go-fasty-bits, but I have to have racing stripes on my seats to get it...?

It's not just Ford... The same problem exists with Dodge and GM... Hideous, cavernous, boring, plastic interiors with fake-aluminum adorning un-inspired gadgets.

Here's hoping your interiors have come around like your exteriors have, in 5 years, when I trade-in my 2011 VW GTI. I'll give you another chance then too. Don't let me down again.

My 08 Shelby GT 500 has only 24K miles but everyone of them was a blast. Its only slightly slower than my 03 Terminator was and thats because I kept the stock blower on this one. But still 625hp and 600ftlbs of torque makes for a steady rush of adrenlin when I want it!
