It looks like Ford was Flex-ing their new minivan replacement for 2009 down in San Antonio, Texas. Jalopnik reader Hernan caught this here prototype making its way through the downtown city streets the other day looking very Dave-like in the rear-view mirror of what we're assuming is the family truck. We don't know much else more than what we already learned at the New York auto show earlier this year — but as production's expected to begin about one year from now we're assuming we'll be seeing more of this great big box in the eyesight of many a spy photographer.
