we swore we didn't want a bus, but it's what we pert'near ended up with. many thanks to everyone who offered their advice for an 8 passenger vehicle.
if you're in our neck of the woods, stop by DON DAVIS FORD and ask for mark plummer. i'll bet you dollars to doughnuts that mr. plummer will treat you very well; it seems his specialty is getting large catholic families into affordable vehicles.
we love our '02 ford excursion -- the gas mileage alone makes this a great ride!
