    Just keep hating boys...

    My '96 still looks pretty damn good. So does my neighbor's '78. Both original right down to the paint.

    AND... Ford never took a penny of government bailout money...

    Just a little fun, no hatred

    I'm sure there are many Chevy and Mopar haters out there too! I will say post 1980's trucks were pretty stout, I just wouldn't give you 5c for one their cars or SUVs...

    I get it, just getting in on the fun.

    I've owned all of them over the years, just happened to end up with Fords and had great luck with them. My previous was a 97 F150 that I bought with 34K on it and sold it years later with 309k, still ran great. The diesel pictured above has ~306k on it now and has been trouble free. I can't remember what my neighbor's truck has on it. I think it's around 50k if I remember right. Was his grandfather's who bought it new.

    I've owned many different brands over the years both foreign and domestic Probably a couple dozen Ford trucks of all sizes including a couple semi's. As far as I can remember I have only ever own 2 Ford cars though a 641/2 Mustang and a 1970 Maveric, there were others, but I don't count flip vehicles of any of the brands. I've owned my share of GM products I can think of only 2 of those I'd like to still own, but regretted ever buying them while I owned them. The only New vehicles I ever bought were Dodge or Chryslers though, save for the 1972 Vette. During my stupidity years of got to go fast it was always Dodge, not even the Vette with its 454 could hold a candle to some of my Dodges. One funny thing is of all the engines I've worked on or tweaked into being more than they should have been the only V8 firing order I can remember happens to be 18436572. There will be 2 brand enthusiast who will recognize that number

    I remember that one too, all of our circle track cars are and always have been SBC. I still remember to always double check 5 & 7 as they are easily mixed up when you are in a hurry.

    Never knew about the other engine that shared it, had to look it up. Interesting.

    But Ford actually did get bailout money. They went, along with Chrysler and GM, to Congress to request $35 billion. Ultimately, Chrysler ($4 billion) and GM (over $13 billion) got funding through TARP, while Ford got theirs--almost $6 billion--through TALF. GM and Ford also went back later and received $30 billion between them to shore-up their credit operations. There were strings attached to all these disbursements--getting rid of corporate jets, company heads cutting their pay to $1.00 per year, and streamlining the array of products they offered--and Ford agreed specifically to improving its corporate fuel economy by investing in more efficient combustion engines and electric vehicles. Some people think that hurt Ford in the long run, but it put them in the lead among the Big Three U.S. automakers when it comes to high-efficiency vehicles, which are becoming more and more popular.
