Ok im going to start this debate up that probally wont stop for about 10 pages. Ford hummm..... Did you see the last report out that 98% of the fords today are still on the road??? Thats because only 2% made it home. In arizona we call them Flipped over reservation decorations. One big Family of retarted drivers. As you can tell Im a CHEVY Man. Ok this can of worms is open now. lets hear from all you now. lol
oh god hear we go i dont need to say anything because i own a ford and have had nothing wrong with it its a great truck now i have 3 very good friends that have chevys that all 3 of them are sitting not running waiting for good old stewy to help their owners fix them. im a ford guy and i will never own anything different so ha!! oh ya i forgot about u dodge guys DONT RAM IT STROKE IT!!! i bet this does turn in to a 10 page thing atleast it might take away from all of the other stupid crap going on. tight lines everyone
Tell ya the truth my whole family im Michigan either works for ford or has. I must say they did have nice body styles like the old coups and rods, but if you look under the hood there is either a mouse or rat under the hood. Those are chevy small blocks and big blocks for anyone wondering. If you cant run with the big dogs stay on the porch or sit in the ford and dream of having a chevy.
hey to tell u the truth i love the 350 chevy never went wrong with that as for the 454 it blows the 460 ford is so much better and u know it chevy boy ford 351 is a so so motor the chevy inline 6 sucks fords in line 6 is a very good motor but one thing chevy will never have is a motor to match with the power stroke and anyone in there right mind knows that. so what i have came down to is that chevy has one good motor and that is the 350 the rest of them suck. :lol:
The 427 and 396 are nice rats. I would still love a Hemi lol. For never got thier engines to breathe manifolds, heads, pos. The widnsor was probally the best base motor, they are just way to expensive to build for what the end result would be. I will see what your reply will be and hopefully some others will join in. Cant wait to hear from a foreign fan lol.
This goes back a ways, but...I had a 283 cu. inch Chevy engine in a 1958 Chevy Impala that was a great motor, a 396 cu. in. engine in a 1970 Chevelle SS that was a great motor. I now have a 350 cu. inch Chevy with some modifications in my 1999 Tahoe and it pulls my bass boat great. No complaints there. On the Ford side, I had a 1993 Ford van with a 351 cu. inch engine that also pulled my bass boat just great. Bottom line is that I've good success with all the above engines.
I received a Ford Motor Company 100th year anniversary magazine in the mail. Supposedly all the history of the company. Lots of nice pics of the 30's & 50's Fords and the 60's Mustangs etc. etc. Not a single thing on the Edsel or the Pinto, two of Fords biggest mistakes.
for 18 years i have driven ford or chevys at work. the average lifespan of a vehicle is 2 years with about 100000 miles on it. to be completly honest with the driving we do the fords do not hang. we have nothing but problems with them. the chevys last 2 to 3 times longer than the fords whether it is a 4x4 or a patrol car. car companies give us vehicles to test because of the type of driving we do. i am just being honest. prior to doing this job i was a ford man. now i will not own one because of the problems we have had with the drive trains.
It's not Flipped Over Rebuilt Dodge, it's Flip Over Read Directions!!! I love my fords and I don't mind driving my Ford while the others push their Chevy's. I'll do that anyday!!! As far as Dodge goes.... Well, what can you say, someone had to finish last... :wink:
Its too bad that they left out the real quote "First on race day to break down and go home on the trailer" but then they needed to use just the ford. I wont bring up all the old sayings, but if you want me to I have about a dozen or so, lol. It is a shame that they used to have good drive trains, and nice bodies. fyi my baby is a 1967 camaro deluxe, with a hand built 350 pushing 440hp and 535lbs of torque to the ground. Dyno testing was done at Daves Dynotech. Ran an 11.23 first run at firebird but they met me with the black flag at the end for no roll cage lol. She is almost done, but time and money just like the boat lol.
