Do You Bleed Ford Blue?
1 Attachment(s)
So you consider yourself a "Ford" guy down to the core. You may even say you bleed Ford blue. But how far do you take your passion? Does it extend all the way to your daily driver? How about the car rental lot? If you haven't already, have you ever considered breaking your oath to the blue oval, even with your future project car ambitions?

At this point, for me, working on Fords "only" has become mostly a matter of convenience and familiarity. My "bins o' bolts" are all genuine Gran Torino, as are all those miscellaneous clips and specialty fasteners I've hoarded through the years. Needless to say, it would be tough to transition at age 40, but if I did… it would be a 1971 Plymouth Satellite Sebring. Guess I'll have to wait until I can buy one complete.

Do you have a favorite non-Ford? Comment with a picture.

I'm a huge Ford lover but I can't deny myself to other cool cars like AMCs, Mopars, GM and even imports.

One of my favorite cars is a '70 Cuda and I have a passion for VW's as well (my family has had atleast one in every generation and of every kind).

Re: Do You Bleed Ford Blue?
I currently have 4 fords(soon to be 5), ones my daily driver, but i have always wanted to buy a mopar of some sort, probably a 67 coronet convertible or 67 charger. I like the Monte Carlos from the early 70's too. By the way Mikelonis, I had found a 1971 Satellite 2 door sitting in a friends uncles forest. He cleaned the forest and crushed all the cars before i could;d get to it. It is straight was a pin with no rust. I'm a ford guy and i wanted to cry.

I'm a die hard ford man. my daily driver is a (free) dodge caravan. i'd buy the new challenger and i could be convinced to drive a 64 chevy II. i need a truck but i refuse to look at anything but a ford regular cab short bed two wheel drive.

When I win the lotto I will have a 66 Chevy || and it will have a 2011 5.0 in it. I'm not a fan of Chevy's, but I do love the sleeper look of this car and I'm so tired of seeing Chevy engine's in Fords.

Re: Do You Bleed Ford Blue?
I currently have three fords right now and I've only had fords since i started driving. Except When i ordered my diesel a few years back all i had was my stang. I sold my 95' powerstroke and was waiting the 6 weeks for my truck to be done so since it was winter in jersey a mustang wasn't gonna hack it. I bought my buddies 93' jeep cherokee beater for $500 and was leary because it was first non ford purchase. Had it on the road for 23 hrs.Was on my way home from dropping off my sister when a dumb a$$ drunk in a sunfire pulled out in front of me. I t-boned him at about 40 mph wrecked both vehicles. Insurance gave me 2,200 dollars for jeep, then sold it for $625 to someone for a parts truck. So even though i made a lot of money for hitting a drunk It was still a very very good lesson to never not buy a ford again.

Re: Do You Bleed Ford Blue?
I could drive one of these. It was the first LARGE resto job I did and had YARDS of sheet metal I had to replace on it.

The BONUS here is that it's BLUE :)

Cut Me Mick! If I were to change, it would be only model. And it would be a 1966 Ford Fairlane. Don't get me wrong, I can appreciate a good body line no matter the make or model. But, I'm Blue oval through and through. Yes, I Bleed Ford Blue! I'd rather fight than switch!

Re: Do You Bleed Ford Blue?
I have six running Fords, five parts cars, one Grand Cherokee and one 66 Chevelle.

I do tend to bleed Ford Blue, and have had Fords since my 65 Mustang in high school. My dd is a Bullitt. Had one other Chevy, a Poncho, a Datsun,a 68 Charger, a Volvo and a Jeep. Otherwise, all Fords.

Re: Do You Bleed Ford Blue?
I can't believe I am about to blaspheme, but if I could afford it, I would pick up a 1970 2dr hardtop 'Cuda in a heartbeat!

Re: Do You Bleed Ford Blue?
I raced Mustangs and owned them for years, but if I could find a Pont GTO roller chassie I would jump on it. I have a 68 GTO Ram Air motor W/ aluminum Muncie Attached that I Raced in High School in the early 80s.

Re: Do You Bleed Ford Blue?
I work for ford (for the moment), as does my dad. I've been helping build fords since I was born, the farthest back I can remember is a 66' coupe 289 Hi-po motor I helped put together. Around the same time we had a 69 Boss 302 that was like brand new inside. I used to play in it when I was little, make noises, you know the drill. I've had about 30 mustangs total, at age 20. My parts are scattered everywhere, Wheels, fenders, engines, seats, you name it. I've built so many foxbodys I go cross eyed with them. Used to run around the ford parts department when I was real young, and have been around ford my entire life. My dad believe it or not is a chevy man, or was. He always said back in the day when he owned his hotrod shop, that if someone told him he'd have a blue oval son he'd punch em. lol. Believe it or not, we still have one chevy, a 70 chevelle. Which I have my eye on. I'm a ford/chevy guy. I'll take a 70 fastback as quick as I'd take a 69 Camaro or chevelle. Not crazy about Novas though. I've laid hands on unrestored Talladegas, Cal yarboroughs personal 70 Cougar built for him, Bosses, Mach 1s, 427s, you name it.. all before the age of 15. I'd say I'm pretty die hard, even though I'd own a chevy.

I love my 64 Fairlaine but work 58 miles from home. I've got an old dark Q45 whose top speed I've never dared try. But it keeps me sane on those long commutes- Wouldn't mind a recent-ish Marauder, though.
