CC Outtake: Boxes Of A Feather…


I couldn’t exactly resist this shot. And I’ve often wondered just how much Ford was looking at the Xb when it designed the Flex. The Fairlane Concept that led to the Flex was shown in 2005, two years after the Xb arrived here. It’s just too obvious.


If the Flex had been around back when the kids were around, I could well see us all in one. As it is, when they are here and we all need to go somewhere together, it’s the car car we use, as the back seat is huge, every bit as big as the Flex’. But thankfully I don’t need all that extra length in the back and front.
