To hear Chris Doane tell it, the day was like any other. He stumbled upon a 2008 Ford Super Duty F-250 Powerstroke in a parking lot and started snapping away. The driver eventually returned and this is where Doane's day took a sharp turn towards the bizarre and frightening. The driver in question, who our sources tell us is indeed a Ford employee, snapped a synapse and chased Doane on public roads for a half an hour, including following him in and out of parking lots, tailgating him while running through highway traffic, and nearly swallowing his car in the gaping maw of the F-250's grille at stoplights.
To hear it in Doane's own words is a treat, and you can do so here. As for the Ford employee who lost control of his 'roid rage, it's just a 2008 Super Duty, man. Chill. We've got three posts up linking to spy shots of the next F-350 here, here and here. It's not like you were driving a C1 Focus or next-gen Mustang.

Thanks SobeSVT for the tip!

      I think Chris Doane needs the Trunk Monkey...

      #15 - right on.

      it's funny leading an aggressive driving into a sharp turn faster than his/her car can handle.

      you see their nose dive as they nail the brakes when they realize their Escalade can take a turns as fast as a small car. heh.

      This has nothing to do with truck owners on a whole. I drive I-75 from Detroit to Troy everyday, for every 1 truck @sshole you have 3 sedan drivers not paying attention to what there doing, or 2 minivans owners driving like they're the only vehicles on the road.
      Not sure how updated this article is but it's obvious this guy does not represent Ford or it's policies.

      Tim, t

      Too bad Boeing sucked in their performance of the Comanche...otherwise Congress wouldn't have pulled the plug:


      And regarding this guy from Ford...what do you expect from a Penis Leach employee from FORD!!! Afterall, it's not like he's working for Hyundai...3-4 rungs up the ladder. So this is just another case of angry white-trash ...angry for the sake of being...angry.

      this is really strange behavior for these guys. I live in Pinal County, south of Phoenix. the Nissan and Volkswagen proving grounds are within ten miles of my house.

      the prototypes are always buzzing around, and they will always talk to you when they are stopped. lots of Audis, Bentleys, and just about everything else is driving around, especially now, when it's really hot.

      kinda freaky to see them pass you at night. there are usually two people inside, with the passenger running literally banks of laptops connected to god knows what.

      lots of "home market" little teeny cars, and even the pathetic VW Phaeton was running around down here since 2001.

      I guess it is a good thing I didn't have my camera with me last week. I passed a truck just like this on I-69 East of Flint, MI last week, and I originally thought, "Man, I wish I had my camera so I could send some shots to Autoblog." Looks like that was a potentially life altering decision!

      Wow, they weren't kidding about those bold moves...

      The Toyota guys were probably just messing around, they probably didn't mean to cause harm.

      I'm 17. i drive a little gold nissan. i've had my fair share of idiot soccer moms trying to plow me off the road in a suburban/Excursion/School bus. Until of course,i drop to 3rd gear and go for a sharp corner. I can't understand how someone with a car that big can act like they have that small a brain.

      Shakespeare has nine simple rules involving SUVs.

      someone had a case of the mondays!
      • 9 Years Ago
      My guess is that this guy was slacking off, or where he wasn't supposed to be and didn't want someone takin' pictures of him more than no wanting pics of the truck.

      From the look of the pictures, I'm guessing this guy's going postal in a McD's sometimes soon, too.
