So the nice folks at Ford are paying for my meal, but actually, I realized after being invited that I have a history with this car. Not only am I a current Ford driver ('06 GT Conv), but the Ford Taurus was the first car I ever drove. It was back in 1995. I was almost but not quite 16. I had a family member in the hospital and my mom was pretty stressed out so I think I caught her at a weak moment. We were going down a quiet straightaway by Staten Island Hospital and I asked if she'd let me drive. I think she let me go two blocks before she freaked and told me to pull over.

PR people, do not pitch me to cover your story, as this is my personal blog. I'm not a journalist.
