    Number 16
    I recently bought a white 2009 Expedition. I decided to name it number 16.

    C'mon old timers, who can guess why I picked number 16?

    That would be a Ford model SUV. That doesn't help me with the opening question, however.

    it's funny how both countries on opposite side of the pond can have the same make of cars yet so many different models, many neither of us know.. certainly there's no Ford expedition on our roads, at least that I've ever heard of.. and I drive a ford.

    Anyway back to number 16..o_O

    Nope, I was going to the store a few days ago and Brooke asked me if I was driving whitey. That gave me the idea to call it 16.

    Sorry, just saw this.
    Yea, the 'Whitey' part gave it away ( at least for me )
    A great, fitting name for your SUV!

    Whitey Ford's number 16 was retired by the New York Yankees in 1974
