I hear ya Jerry, I'm done buying new cars. I'm satisfied with what I own and will fix or have fixed what I got and be happy. Being 66 and retired I don't put many miles on them anyway. In fact sometimes I have to look for places to go to put some miles on my Mustang.
May, 2012, I bought my used Explorer wirh 22.8 K miles. I haven't hit 29K yet, and this is my daily driver.

When I was employed, I had round trip commutes of 70 miles daily for 17 years, and, for a year and a half, 80 miles.

In this weather, I try to take my Exp and the wife's LS out daily just to keep things running smoothly. The Galaxie and 2003 TBird aren't going to see anything but the inside of my garage and back/forth in my driveway for quite a while.

With my kind of driving now, what I drive is no longer an issue, Blue, red, or black. A Ford or a Chevy will get us to the post office, food store, and doctor's office just fine.

Ten years ago, different story.

Do I bleed Ford blue?

I have owned the following vehicles

1964 Falcon Sprint
1969 Mustang coupe
1986 Escort EXP
1977 Bronco

I currently own the following vehicles

2000 F150
2003 Expedition
1978 Bronco

I once won a contest "100 reasons why Ford is better than Chevy"

My dream vehicles are...

Ford GT
Boss 302 Laguna Seca
Raptor

1970 Mach1 351C, 4 speed, shaker hood scoop, spoilers, locker

I think it would be awesome to put a 1932 Ford pickup body on an early Bronco chassis. EFI 5.0 liter power, E4OD, Atlas transfer case, an locked 9" and Dana 44. I'd do a full floater conversion on the 9" as we'll. Cooool! It would've get a huge lift, like a truck or normal Bronco, but enough to run 33's I think.

Ford has built some great engines. Nothing ruins a good custom like putting a Chevy in your Ford vehicle. I'd take a 351C over a Chevy 350 any day. Boss 302 over a 327, a Ford 6.2L Boss over a Chevy 6.2, and the new DOHC 5.0 rocks! I love naturally aspirated power, but who could argue against the Ford GT or the modified twin turbo versions? I haven't seen a Corvette break 240 I think in the "standing mile" several GT's have gone 250 plus.

Do I bleed Ford blue?

I must say, yes, yes I am! I had a 1954 Pontiac once, and hum, been so long I don't remember but I think it was a dodge, but I digress, yes, Fords, always takes you home if it breaks down, won't leave you stranded. Right now I have a 2000 expedition and a 1993 svt lightning.

First Post.
Anyway, my first car at 16 was a 64 Galaxie 500 w/ 390. By age 17 I had put a 428CJ, 4-Spd Top Loader, and a 9inch with 4.11s.

Since then the Fords have kept coming, albeit in the 4x4 variety
2) 1990 F-250 4x4
3) 1999 Super Duty F-350 V10 - single rear, w/411s (factory ordered)
4) 2003 Sport Trac Limited 4x4
5) 2005 Expedition Limited 4x4

In addition to the ones I currently have I am planning on adding a big block 4-speed 64 Galaxie in the mix just like high school. It all comes full circle if you wait long enough.:D

As a german I don't just bleed Blue, I eat, breath and bleed blue...some may say mercedez is germanys number 1 car brand. But i don't give a damn about it...Ford has always been a passion to me.. You would not believe it, but in germany Ford is kind of lampooned.
They got a saying here "er fuhr Ford und kam nie wieder", which means "he drove Ford and never returned" worldwide it seems to be diffrent:
• Best selling car models worldwide 2013 | Statistic

maybe its just a german thing to taunt about home-produced products^^

Though I grew up in a ford family and my first the cars were a, 52 Ford Mainline flatty, a 68 Fairlane 390 convert and my 66 7 Litre which I've owned for almost 35 years, the rest of the vehicles have been a mix of Ford and Chrysler with my current highway hauler 05 Magnum and daily/winter beater 89 Reliant.
