Re: Do You Bleed Ford Blue?

I've only owned Fords an Mercury's; Crown Vic, Grand Marquis, F100's, Mustangs, Galaxie. If I had to pick a new car tho I'd consider a Charger, unless Ford got with it an made a RWD 4dr sedan again.

Talking Re: Do You Bleed Ford Blue?

i'm 48 years old ,i was born and raised in sweden..been here since 1981..
i'am the youngest of 4 and my youngest brother is 10 years older than me..
so what i'm trying to say is that early to mid 60's they were of driveing age..
they were into american cars.
and belonged to the local american car clubs..
they were mainly into ford fairlanes mid to late 50's
that part of the country seemed to have alot of fords.
my brothers had quite a few 55s 56 and 57s and as i remember a couple of crown vic's glass tops..
any way needles to say it made a major impression on me at a very young age...being around these badass cars..
but buy all meens i'm not just a ford buff,i like them all...
if they look nice ,sound good,sit right,and give me goose bumps i like e'm...
i dont discriminate..what ever floats your boat..
its all about having fun..

anyway my current project is 64 galaxie 500 2dr fastback with stock 352 4v and a cruise-o-matic...

also have a 57 chevy 2dr sedan hotrod with a 96 Z28 LT-1 fuel injected motor and 700R4 trans..that i have had for 20 some years..
all ways seems to fall back in line as new projects
take priorety, i guess it will get done one day..lol..

daily driver 1999 toyota tacoma 4x4 v6 5spd ..110K miles ..only oil changes,plugs one set of wires,filters and tires ...
never failed me yet just turn the key and go..




Cheers Lars..

64 galaxie 500 2dr fastback...390 4v, Bendtsen adapter, maddog's stage3 700R4 trans,3.70 Posi..far from perfect but getting there...

Re: Do You Bleed Ford Blue?

First car was a 49 Poncho torpedo back, after that is was mostly Fords with flat heads in the begining.
Right now i have a 69, 05 Mustang an 010 F150 Supercrew.
Our daily driver is a 98 Jimmy that I got because I was pissed off at Ford for screwing me around on a 96 Sable that had issues. I told Ford that they would loose an Explorer sale if they did me wrong, they still would not budge. It made me feel better driving the new Jimmy on the Ford dealership lot and telling them "I told ya so"
I dont think I hurt their year end profits though.

Still plays with blocks.

Re: Do You Bleed Ford Blue?

I'm a ford man for the muscle era.

I gotta admit, my chopped project probably wont be a ford. It's not that I dont like them, simply that they are just too popular and thus expensive.

I found a pretty cool '39 pontiac. If I got that it's going to be FORD powered.

Re: Do You Bleed Ford Blue?

My grandfather was a Ford dealer, my dad mostly had Fords.
This is my fifth Mustang, along with a 65 LTD, a 64 Falcon wagon and a 70 something Torino.
I love Mustangs, the 67/68 is my favorite coup, the 69/70 sportsroof my favorite fastback or sportsroof.
If I bought another car, I always wanted a 55 Chevy.
My daily driver is a 94 Chebby Silverado truck, the only new vehicle I have ever owned. Ordered it special from my brother. It has 208K miles on it, original tranny and drive line, a crate 350 with 170K miles on that (warranty story). I have made it over to a retro looking Chevy, complete with 60s Chevy emblems.


My wifes car is a 04 Volvo wagon, with the bubble on top, it does have a power adder - turbo.

Re: Do You Bleed Ford Blue?

I love em all! Except trucks, never was attracted to trucks at all for some reason. This one is pretty close to the top of the heap for me but I do love my 65 Galaxie

Re: Do You Bleed Ford Blue?

As much as I love my Galaxie, if someone offered me a 65 Corvette at a reasonable price, Nassau blue in/out, roadster, 4 sp, 327/300 (don't want a big block), two tops, my Galaxie would be history.

But, since that ain't about to happen, the Galaxie is my baby.

Re: Do You Bleed Ford Blue?

I am a Ford enthusiest, but really like the GM LS engines. The company I work for has roughly 25 Ford trucks and 2-2009 Chevrolet trucks. Both Chevs have the 6.0 LS engines. Both the Chevs get better mileage and both Chevs definitely have more power than the Fords.
Both brands have been very dependable however.

Re: Do You Bleed Ford Blue?

I am Blue Oval, tried and true, through and through. There is absolutely nothing about a Shoveme or Slopar truck that does anything for me. If I wasn't a Ford guy I would go to Slopars. I grew up in a Shoveme neighborhood and don't ever care about owning one. Sorry if I offended anyone, that is just the way I feel.

Re: Do You Bleed Ford Blue?

Im about as die hard Ford, for old classic fords then anyone can be. i bleed ford by choice, by family and by preference. my grandpa my father my uncle all die hard ford men. but i was never pressured into it. my dad repects corvettes and my uncle always respected the dodge truck we never discriminated but always stayed true.

growing up hearing the storys of my fathers and uncles 50s fords, mustangs and ford farm trucks. my father had/has a 64 f-100 custom cab show truck. and my uncle a 67 fairlane convertable (my father inherited it) and i a 67 fairlane hard top 500 GTA clone and a, lay it rest in peece 73 ford f-250.

I always loved fords, for the shear (in your face chevy) popularity of the mustang, the simple raraty of a cars made as works of art and how it felt restoring a car that not everybody and there brother has. like a camero, chevell, malibu, impala... ya u get the picture. to be a ford man is to bleed ford respect the classics and to NOT be a :beeeep: like many chevy die hards ive met.

Re: Do You Bleed Ford Blue?

I'm partial to fords..but open minded....I like corvettes,70 chevelles, 69/70 chargers and road runners.I like the choice of all the engine familys that ford offers, chevy its big block or small block. I find that ford guys are a little more open than chevy people...I don't understand there brand loyalty! Most of them are so asinine...they actually think they will win automatically..just because they have chevy...yep..a ford has never beaten a chevy..just ask them..they will tell you! hahaha

Re: Do You Bleed Ford Blue?

My first car was a 1971 Mach 1 red with a healthy 302, but she didn't stay with me for long some idot crashed into her and destroyed her, very sad.

I have a Ford again a 1966 mustang, 351w, almost ready and I am getting excited.

I am open to all makes and models and have had chevy trucks, chevy cars, and chevy boat engines all my life. Chevy's have their goods and bad. Goods: interchangeability of parts. Bads: Weak rearends and tranys (compaired to Fords)

I like Mopar but most are big sled that look nice but are not as fast as people make them out to be.

Fords are my favorite but I wish they used a better front suspension in the early days of the mustang but what can you do?

I bleed ford blue to the horror of my chevy buddies.

Yeah so true, i mean for example in all the races in the 60s a corvette only beat the ford/shelby Cobra what 2, 3 times? and the Cobra was only running a hipo 289ci most of the time.
*sigh*... oh well there loss i guess
