People ask me all the time how I got into auto journalism and why. I'll save that story for another day, but you should know that it started with Ford. My relationship with this company has been full of joys, blessings, and FUN. Of course I love their vehicles, but it's more than that. It's the people I get to work with who make this experience more than just a car to drive for … [Read more...] about Moving with Ford. Transit and Super Duty to the Rescue!
