This is my third, if I count the Mercury Marquis I bought off my grandma.  That thing had a killer 8 track quadrasonic stereo!  I think that's what it was called.

 

Second was a ex-forest service F150 2WD, 4.6 extended cab and yes it was Forest Service green!  I got it for 3k and it had 40k miles on it.  It's still pulling boy scout trailer up north.

I'd love to see what those 50s cars looked like.

Unfortunately no pics of the 50's cars, many on the "web" though.

Haven’t driven a Ford since 2009, and that was my 1999 Ford F-150.

 

2 Pontiac Vibes, 4 Honda CRVs, 1 Subaru Outback, and Honda Pilot later

 

Now a 2021 Ford Edge ST

Not entirely true. My family had the following Fords:

 

1975 Mercury Monarch

1985 Mark VII LSC (Got shorted out from a lightning strike)

1987 Mark VII LSC

1991 Jaguar XJ6

1999 Navigator

 

Prior to Edges and wifey's Escape, I had the following:

 

1977 Olds Cutlass

1986 S10 Blazer 4x4

1988 Caprice

1994 Maxima GXE

2002 Maxima SE

 

Immediately prior to the 2008 Edge, wifey and I had her 2000 Dodge Neon which was surprisingly a decent car. It died on 1/31/2008 when we bought the 2008 Edge.

 

Prior to the Escape, wifey had a 2013 300 and I got an expensive lesson ($3160) about that "stellar" Chrysler reliability.

 

My 2002 Maxima SE was a riot because I would embarrass many V8 cars from a roll. My Edges have been just as much fun. 

 

This is my current 2018 SEL

That's a lovely Edge. I don't think I've ever seen one that colour before. The only red ones we have over here seem to be "Ruby Red" a much "redder" colour than that. Mind, you I've never seen one of those on the road either! The Edge is that rare that other than my Canyon Ridge Edge I've only actually seen black white and silver ones!

10 so far:

1995 Windstar 

1999 Taurus

2000 Windstar

2008 Escape Hybrid 

2010 Fusion

2013 Focus

2015 Escape

2016 Fusion

2019 Edge - favorite so far

2020 Escape - Lots of tech but some obvious cost cutting in materials

 

All purchased at the same dealership.  I think the dealer where your car is serviced is as important as the brand purchased.  I have been very happy with the service department over the years.

This is a combo of the Fords both my wife and I have had since high school. There are only two other cars we've had since we've been together that weren't Fords. You don't realize how many you have until start listing them.
