On April 20th, 2017, I went into the Bill Currie Ford Dealership in Tampa. I had already spoken to the sales rep, Don Graham, and he quickly showed me the vehicle that matched all the features I wanted in a new 2017 Expedition EL. I explained to him that I had filed for bankruptcy about three years earlier, but I had been able to obtain a "waiver of discharge" from the court allowing me to withdrawal from my filing. I also told him it might be difficult getting me approved with this information, but he was confident that they could find a lender. After we negotiated the price, deposit, trade-in amount, several iterations later he informed me I had been approved.
