"My" New Truck

Last month my sister-in-law asked us if we wanted her truck. We needed something considering my Toyota was going on 180,000 and was slowly dying. Not since my first car have I enjoyed driving a vehicle so much.

While it's not new it is new to us and we LOVE it. It is so much bigger then my Corolla and while it's not a Toyota my favorite brand. I am thrilled with my Big Blue FORD!


This kids love it too! They appreciate the third row seat and spent the first few weeks sitting in the back.

It's a great vehicle and my sister-in-law rocks!

Isn't getting a new car (to you) just the happiest thing. We all have our favorites. I'm very partial to my Ford 500. closing in on 100,000 miles and hoping it lasts forever!

@latane, it is an awesome thing. New to me is new in my book. Ford 500 is an awesome vehicle.

@sally, I LOVE the blue on this truck. Makes it even more fun to drive.

Hope it serves you well. I have never had anything but Toyota car and love them. Driving a 2004 Avalon now with almost as many miles as your old one. It is the quietest, smooth riding car I have ever owned.

FORD is our brand--your truck is a looker!

That is a beautiful blessing! My grandson Andrew lost his grandmother a while back and his grandfather recently gave him some money to purchase a newer vehicle. He and Tarrah have a 3 1/2 year old boy plus raising her sister's daughter also 3 1/2 and they have a brand new baby boy. They had a tiny Subaru and I am happy his other grand dad could afford to help him out. They have a nice Chevy Traverse! It has lots of room for the kiddos.
I like your blue today! enjoy a wonderful week and thank you.

Great color! A very nice gift as well. Trucks and SUVs are my favorite automobiles. They're big and can do basically anything.
