Re: Do You Bleed Ford Blue?

My grandfather was hired at the Cleveland Engine Plant when it opened and worked there until he retired. He was a the most company "union man" I ever met. Nothing but Ford in his driveway. So I guess I inherited it from him.

I've always like Ford because of this, plus everyone else was a Chevy guy.

Anyone can build a SB or BB Chevy. Just follow the formula...

Of course I always pick the oddballs. FE motors in the past and a Cleveland now.

Oh, if I won the lottery a few non-Fords would probably sneak in. A Porsche 930, an LS-6 Chevelle, a '67 GTO, to name a few.

Re: Do You Bleed Ford Blue?

First thing I ever drove was a 49 Ford F-1. My dad and I rebuilt the flathead V-8 together when I was 10. My first car was a 79 Pinto station-wagon, I had to rebuild the engine in it the day after we brought it home. Then I got an 86 Escort, 88 Taurus, 90 Taurus SHO (bought that one when I got back from Somalia), 65 Mustang 289 A code 4V, 65 Ford Custom, 69 F-100, 70 F-100, 70 Mustang (Boss 302 clone), 96 T-Bird, 86 Bronco, 91 Bronco, and then an 04 F-150. I brought home my 64 Ford Galaxie 500 XL, 352 4v about 3 months ago. I got it from my dad who is also a Ford guy. I'm slowly returning her to running order.

I'm so lazy, I'll fix it right the first time so I don't have to go back and fix it a second time.

'32 Model B Woodie Wagon - Restored show car (owned 50 yrs)
'35 Phaeton - Bought from owner since '57 this year

Re: Do You Bleed Ford Blue?

If I had Bill Gate's money I would buy up all ford wreckers and start hauling all the chebbys to scrape yard where they belong. Mopars are ok , RT , cudas , challengers , GTX, roadrunners , superbees, 340 dusters,

Not that I dislike a chebby that bad for a chevelle , ss 69 camaro looks ok , problem is the chebby owner and all of them are alike. They thik their chebby is king of road , crush'em all I say.

Re: I am Ford Blue All The Way!

First off I only buy Ford Products, period.

I worked for GM for 31 years and earned the nick name "Henry" from my fellow workers. I was told many times I was a disloyal employee but we did not make cars and even GM would not buy our products.

What started it was when I first hired in at GM I thought possibly that I would be able to receive an employee discount on my first new car. I was looking at a new 1962 Impala when the salesman let me know that I was not entitled to any discount, infact he would be glad to sell me a car at list price. That POed me so bad I went down the street to buy my 1962 Galaxie from a very nice Ford dealer. From that day on I learned Ford was the only car for me.

Here is a list of some of my cars over the years:

1960 Fairlane 500 292 Auto, A/C, PW, PB, PS
1962 Galaxie 500 406 4-speed
1964 Galaxie 500 390 PI 4-speed
1965 Mustang Conv. 4-speed
1965 Mustang Coupe 289, 4-speed
1966 Fairlane GTA
1966 Fairlane 500 289, Auto, A/C, PS, PB
1966 LTD 352 4 barrel
1968 T-Bird 429
1968 F-100 352 4 barrel 4-speed
1969 Mustang Mach 1 428 CJ Ram/Air Shaker
1970 F-100 428 CJ C6
1971 Galaxie 500 351W
1973 Torino Gran Sport 429CJ 4-Speed
1974 Rancharo 351M
1974 Ranchero 429
1975 Granada 351
1980 Pinto 302, 325 HP, C-4, 3:55 Traction Lock, Ram Air, PS, PB
1983 Mustang GT 4-speed
1983 Bronco II Eddie 4-speed
1985 T-Bird 302
1988 Bronco II Eddie Automatic
1990 Ranger 2.3 4-speed
1991 F-150 302 Auto
1991 Explorer Eddie
1993 Explorer Limited
1996 F-150 Lariet
1996 Mustang Cobra Conv 4.6 DOHC 5-speed
1999 Explorer Eddie 5.0
2001 F-150 Lariet 5.4 4X4
2008 Mercury Sable

Most of thes cars were purchased new and many were modified for drag racing and street rods. They have a very rich history with many adventures.

I currently still have some of these cars along with my pride and joy. A 1964 Fairlane Sport Coupe with a 427 FE 4-speed, Top Loader, Detroit Locker, 31 spline axles, and 3:89 gears.
I will not allow any GM parts on my cars like the poular one wire alternator conversion, You can put a Ford alternator on just a easily.
There are "NO" posi rear ends on Fords and it P's me off when someone refers to there 9 inch as having one of those. That is a GM generic name. There are plenty of traction contol divices on the market without useing that name.

I am 70 years old now and no one will ever convice me that Fords are not the best product for your money. BUY AMERICAN BRAND PRODUCT, do not send profits to Japan, Korea, China.
Henry

70?

I'm 70, and I didn't have half the cars you had. And, when I first started driving in 1960, I changed cars more frequently than I changed my jeans,

Did you change cars whenever they needed an oil change? LOL

Wish I had had that many cars.

PS, I also had some great GM cars, a 54 Olds 88, 3 sp column; 57 Olds 98 convert; 57 BelAir 283/220 pwr pack, three speed Hurst, 4:11 rear; a 58 Pontiac Chieftain; and a 65 Corvette.

All great cars.

Unhappy Re: Do You Bleed Ford Blue?

No one bleeds BLUE here-

The blood supply has been tainted with HEI, CORVETTE MC and DODGE tail lamps.

HOLLYWOOD could make one of those vampire movies here...

As a matter of fact, I wear condoms on my fingers while typing. I also wear a surgical mask and face shield.

Re: Do You Bleed Ford Blue?

Hey, jerrym3,
No I did not get a new one every oil change. Many of these would have been around for several years infact. My race cars and show cars were around the longest. By the way I did not bother to list my two boys Mustangs and Cougers, they would have at least one a piece sometimes more on the place at any given time. Many of these were daily drivers and between just the wife and I we could have had up to five cars and trucks at any one time. This Blue Blood thing is not taken lightly at my house if you are driving an import, generic motors, brand x or anything else leave it parked in the street I have no use for it.

Yes I am 70 also and still active with the Fairlane Club of America they are some of the greatest people going. If you guys are not members of FCA you are missing out on something special.
