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

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.
