You can meet felow Ford owners and enthusiasts from your own country, and share your varied experiences about having a Ford truck in your home country.
Anything related to living with a Ford truck outside of the US/Canada (and some things not related ).
It does get kind of lonely - how could you geuss?
So I just amuse myself with mindless drivel (I am good at that )
And any time you pop over, I would only be to happy to take a FTE member in my car...
Just make sure you bring some brown pants
No one else that I know of from UAE, but a few from Europe, some from South America, a couple from Asia and some others (like me) from Australia/New Zealand.
Some cool photos in your gallery too!
You might be able to explain this, but is there any explanation for the driving style of most of your fellow country men?
When I was there (only for 2 days) I was scared like you wouldn't believe on your roads. Maybe I am just a softie though.
Thanks for having a look at the gallery. The desert driving takes some gettin use to, but having a long wheel based truck like the F150 does not make it easy. However, driving in the sand and the dunes that are out here is absolutely amazing. Can't wait for cooler temps so we can start playing in the desert again.
As for my fellow coutry men, it all depends what pat of the country. However if you are refering to the east side like in the province of Quebec, I'm surprised you lived through it!! ;-)
By fellow country men I figured you meant Canadians. I'm not from the UAE, I just live here. However, you, me and every other foreigner that lives here has the exact same comments. The driving here sucks!! I have never seen so many *******s on the road in one country as we do see here. The problems lies in the training. There is none!!! Well, no quality training anyway. What do you expect when the people giving the instruction are as ignorant and clueless as the rest of them. In Canada if you saw a car from a driving school crashed, there would be a pride issue with having had that accident. It would be seen as very bad advertising and poor instruction. Here, there is no pride, is wasn't the driving instructors fault, ....RIGHT!! He wasn't the one driving ...RIGHT!!! One just needs to be extra careful and drive extra defensively over here because it's like you are driving for everyone else on the road. But as my gallery shows, you can't predict everything. In that case I ran into someone doing 50 KM/HR on the major highway when i was doing the speed limit of 120 KM/HR. My truck was 7 months old, the best part, the Indian family driving the new Merc ML350, had their car for less then 24 hours. LOL!! It's just the way it is, what to do?!?!
