Re: Do You Bleed Ford Blue?

My deceased father-in-law worked for Ford as did my brother-in-law.

I met my wife through my "destined to be" brother-in-law when we both worked for Ford, (but I'm not going to hold Ford responsible for that one; I blame him).

If anything, it was the Ford discount program for employees that made me a Ford fan, but I just wish that the early 60's Fords weren't so damn rust prone.

Re: Do You Bleed Ford Blue?

I like Ford's best, but have had others over the years that I was very happy with. My 1st car was a hand-me-down 1976 Plymouth Valiant from my Grandpa. Cars since then in order have been;
1967 Mustang coupe
1966 Mustang coupe
1968 Mustang coupe
1981 Dodge Colt (cheap car for college transportation to keep from driving the Mustangs in Ohio during the winter)
1993 Volkswagon Passat GLX (overseas tour in Germany)
1998 BMW M3 (loved this car, especially on the autobahn! 140 MPH no problem! Also bought this while in the Army in Germany and it was the first new car I ever bought.
2003 Dodge Durango (couldnt get any Ford dealerships in Ann Arbor or Detroit to return my calls or help us, so used a friend at Dodge to hook us up with a Durango. I wanted my wife to have a 4X4 for the winters in Michigan while I was deployed.
1991 Mercades (back in Germany, so get a German car to ease repairs if needed.)
2005 Volvo S60R
1969 Mustang fastback
Finally, got my dream car in NOV. I'm now the proud owner of a 1969 Mustang Mach 1 Cobra Jet car with 4 speed! This is the car I've always wanted since the 1980's when I rode in one and got pinned to the seat when the stop light turned green!

Black Jade 1969 Mach 1
Q code 428 Cobra Jet
4 speed
3:50 traction lock

Re: Do You Bleed Ford Blue?

Do I bleed Blue. Well my first car was a 73 Grand torino, my Second one was a 71 Mustang coupe. since then i have owned several other fords and mercurys but I am still partial to ford. I currently have a Dodge truck, Chrysler Van, and my son drive a Pontiac. but my recreation car is a 64 1/2 mustang. I may drive others but my heart belongs to ford. Just to update I now have added an 02 mustang to the corral.

Re: Do You Bleed Ford Blue?

My first car was a Mitsubishi. The model was the locally built Magna. Not entirely sure why I bought it, but it died after owning it for not even a year.

Every single car Ive owned after that was a Ford. Either Australian or American built. And every car I will ever own will be a AUS/US Ford.

Thats not to say I havent driven other makes. From GM to Hyundai. But none offer the satisfaction of Henry's finest.

So yes, whilst I will give credit where its due to other makes, Im a brand loyalist & wear my blue coloured glasses proudly.

i had a 89- was my favorite car prior to the s197 mustangs...we just redid a 90 for my son- donated my poor 89 to the cause as a parts car, he ended up with a real nice car for about 1200 bucks total, including paint and tires! these were some of the nicest highway cruisers ever made- and WAY ahead of its time...first American car with non- sealed beams, 4 whl ABS, aircraft style doors, air suspension, climate control, stock with 6 way power seats, auto lamps, auto dim, keyless entry, heated mirrors, crazy list of standard features... the 1990 stickered at over $30k!!! was the most expensive Lincoln ever when it came out.

he went tonight and bought himself a FORD racing keychain...another generation of Ford fanatics getting started

Re: Do You Bleed Ford Blue?

I love Fords. My wife drives an 04 Lincoln LS8 Sport, I drive a 2010 Explorer, and there's a 2003 TBird and my 64 Galaxie in my two car garage. My last non Ford was a 62 Impala "beater" that I used for commuting 40 miles one way to work, a long, long time ago.

But, if someone offers me a trade, a Nassau Blue (in and out) 65 Corvette roadster 327/300, 4sp, two tops, for my TBird and Galaxie, I would probably wind up with the Stingray, and not because of the money value of the deal in my favor.

IMHO, the 63/67 Stingray is the best looking car ever to come out of Detroit, and the styling will never grow old.

That is the only car I would ever consider as a replacement for the Bird and Galaxie.

But, since that kind of swap is not about to happen anytime soon, Fords forever.

As far as daily drivers, Ford and nothing else.
