Chevy v.s. Ford

OK so Imma Ford Guy...Love Mustangs, and have a Ford Explorer, and don't even get me started on the new Superduty F- 450, but recently I've been lusting after 1980's Camaro's and am this close(hold Index finger and Thumb a millimeter apart) from buying a 1988 Camaro Z-28 w/ a reinforced 700R4 Tranny and a Posi out back. With Polished aluminum heads in the 305cu.in. motor, and a Flowmaster exhaust, plus it's been recently repainted and upholstered.

Am I a cheatin' bastard for this?

IMO they all brake. I end up fixing them all. I have a dodge diesel and my dad and my friend both have ford power strokes. If you want to know what cars are reliable, ask a tech what cars he/she knows the least about and see's the least

But in the Truck world get this. The Ford diesel is owned by International. The Dodge is owned by Ford. The Chevy is owned by Isuzu. The Chevy transmission is Allison. The Ford might soon be CAT (rumor right now) and the Dodge may soon be Mercades-Benz. (also rumor right now). Toyota has recently surpassed GM as the most sold vehicle in the United States. Honda and Toyota are now working on their own diesel engines for their ever growing truck lines.

Kinda makes you wonder....

Chevy all the way. Youre not a cheatin bastard for having good taste- but as mentioned above- the 305 sucks... no power- I had a 77 camaro with the 305. It ran good but as "muscle cars" go- the 305 is a joke. Get a 350- parts are cheap- the have all the potential in the world and they are one of the most reliable engines ever built. I am a mechanic- Dad is a mechanic- its what we do- and not to step on toes- his business was successful because of fords and dodges- yes chevy's break down too- but they are cheaper to fix ... Chevy is the only way to go as far as American made vehicles go. But the best reliability is gonna be Toyota, Nissan, Honda. Sad but true.

I should admit though- that new F450... is one sweet looking ride.

You cheating bast**d!! Where's the option for you're Tater's wh*re of an ex-wife!?

j/k

I'm not biased either way. I'm actually looking to get rid of the mini van I drive now (yes I said mini van) and getting a truck (could be a Chevy, Dodge, Toyota..I'll buy what suits my needs best). It's not a bad thing to buy from another manufacturer if that's what you really want.

In ye ole days all the "big three" had their problems and advantages. In the modern age they are all CadCam designed P.O.S but growing up in a auto shop where we worked mainly on Fords and Dodges set my mind for GM/Chevrolet products.

I'd rather push my Chevy that drive a Ford..... Unless its a Mustang GT500.

My first car was a 1970 Camaro Z28 with a built corvette engine. Red with black stripes.

But I'm not tater's whore of an ex-wife...he is for cheating on Ford.

Therefore, there should be an option stating that he's tater's whore of an ex-wife.
