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.
