    I bought a 1999 Expedition in the year 2000. Drove it from San Antonio to Alaska due to military orders. While in Alaska, I had purchased a big travel trailer and the Expy was not strong enough to pull it back to San Antonio and I had no option but to sell my beloved truck in Alaska 2006. I always wondered about the whereabouts of the truck, but as years went by I lost track. The Army moved me back to San Antonio in 2015. Two years later (2017) while driving home, I stopped at a traffic light and to my surprise I saw the truck again!!! 11 years later!!! It pulled up next to me!! I followed the new owner and bought it back! I have installed a new engine, transmission and suspension. It rides like a new truck!

    Cool story! It's like meeting up with a best friend that lives in town again.
