Re: "Chevy" No More

My best friends a Dealer at my local Ford dealership.. he had me come and test drive one of those new Ford Flex and yea.. all I can say is at least it isn't a Toyota Prius.. lol I think I saw Toyota giving tampons away with every purchase of a Prius

Instead of making "Chevy" no more.. why didn't they just put on their advertisement propaganda "Chevy" AND "Chevrolet" ? Most people I think would rather say Chevy vs Chevrolet. That's the government for ya... SNAFU

Re: "Chevy" No More

I am glad you started this thread... I couldn't even spell chevrolet before, lol.

I owned 3 GM products before I went full blown loyalist blue blood FORD
I drive a 94 F-150 king cab 4x4 5.0 currently, and have a 98 F-150 short bed 4.2v6 5-speed as well. The only reason I drive the 94 more is because I have 3 kids. I have pulled more stuff with the 98 than a lot of people would believe. Made a trip from New Jersey and back to Southeast VA pulling my 73 24' cuddy cabin, with 50gals of fuel, and a 1500lbs trailer, for a total weight of around 7800lbs. It did great, and I used it to launch my boat at the ramp when it was still running. My buddy hooked to it with his chevy 1500 once, and swore he would never pull it again, and he never did, we always used my truck to go fishing from that point on. Might have something to do with him almost sliding down the ramp, but it didn't pull it no where as god as my little F-150 did. Greatest thing about it is he is a die hard gm guy.

As far as Ford not taking the bailout money, how many of their other companies did they sell off? They had several that I don't see listed on the company website anymore. So I imagine that played a major role in helping out. That and I think they just managed to be a little smarter overall. Isn't it funny how the 2 other companies of the big 3 are now partially owned by foreign companies ???

Chrysler- Fiat
GM- A Japanese industrial machinery company, thanks to Obama
