    How bad off is the driver? Looks like a small impact on the windshield where his/her head would be.

    Also looks like the engine is in the back seat. Are they saying how fast they were going?

    We hereby gather to commemorate the life of not only a wise and reliable vehicle, but a friend. Now do not remember her for how she ended up, but for how she lived her life happily driving down the road. Expedition was always there for her owner, she drove, she hauled, heck I’m sure there were a few races in there. But at the end of the day she lived a good life, yes there were ups and downs (over all those hills) but she always cheered those who saw and drove her up. Now we say goodbye to this vehicle as it reaches its final resting place of the yard. For do not fear her soul has driven off into the sunset to a happier destination, only her body and frame lay in the yard. She is on to bigger and better things now, hauling trailers and racing chevys up in the clouds.

    That there's the REASON I bought my first Expedition. I get tired when driving sometimes. I found it impossible to sleep sitting up in a car seat, so I bought an Expedition where I can lay down in the back with seats folded down. As long as I fall asleep, even if its for as little as a minute ... I'm all set to drive again. It's like rebooting the brain!

    Regarding Bronco's my buddy had one in High School (70's). We took it on a fishing trip up to North Bay. I seem to recall top speed was 50 mph but it was a great vehicle. I spied this mint resto in a parking garage in Colorado couple years ago. Beautiful.
