Not sure it would work for weddings, but for everything else looks great.
Yea. Not for weddings. I’m doing an 8th grade dance and high school dance sunday night

Even then I wasn’t sure, because I do not do any advertising on my facade. So I opted to have my emblem glow and my company name kinda silent during the show!

Didn’t cost that much. 40 bucks on a 3/4 in ply board, cut on a water jet machine. 20 bucks an paint and screws.

Yep got 340,000 miles on it and everything works, 4 wheel drive and rides fabulous. That truck is definitely a winner for ford in my book.
Another ford product I wanna brag on was a a ford bronco II, the one with the little square back. I hint it was like an 1987 maybe , but i drove that thing for over 450,000 miles and 1 year more ( that’s when the odometer gave out). Sold it to my neighbor and he drove it for another 3 years, and he sold it to a brother and I don’t know if it is still alive? When I changed the oil it was 4.5q in and 4.5q out.

Now that 00 there does drink some oil! Got a funnel under the hood!

450,000 miles is unreal!

My sister has a 2002 Ford Explorer. She has for sure got her money's worth out of the SUV. She bought it for like $8,000 used back in 2006 or 2007. It still has original trans and engine. She has like 289,000 miles on it. She said she is a little worried about it right now because it is running weird. Probably needs a real good tune up again, but for being a cheap SUV, she has got her money's worth out of it. I thought it would blow up by the time it hit 225,000 miles. It is still ticking!

She can't afford a new car with her house rent being so damn high so I hope it continues to last for her.

She managed to get 344,000 miles out of a 92 Pontiac Firebird V8. The original engine went at 304,000. She had a junk yard engine put in that had like 80,000 miles on it, and went another 40,000 miles before the transmission went. That thing looked like hell when she got rid of it lol

They do. Mine had 300k when I had to give it up and I was getting offers up to then too - no mechanical or interior problems whatsoever. Mine was bought back from Toyota for frame perforation - and I was very well taken care of. I have a Tundra now and people still try to buy it from me.

Mine is a 2000 with over 350,000 on it. I picked it up for $1200 a few years back because I needed a vehicle quick and it was available. Wound up driving it for almost 2 years and put 80,000 on it. The only thing I did to it besides general maintenance was a shift linkage. I'm going to get it running again in the spring for a backroad truck everything still works on it it just needs a few little things

I love the Bronco II my buddy had one when we were in out teens/early 20's we spent a lot of time in that thing. I always wanted one but never got around to it
