me, im a total ford die hard..ive only owned 3 vehicles non-ford...a 91 2wd s15 jimmy, and a 88 mazda mx6, neither were bought to drive. The other was a 1973 dodge reg cab shortbox 4wd 6" lift 35s painted camo with a 4 speed. I traded the mazda (paid $300 for) on an 86 351w powered stang, which I later traded for the jimmy that I sold for $1800.
Ive owned:
1973 f150 360 auto 4wd std cab l/b (I was 12)
1977 f150 300 4speed 4wd reg cab s/b
1980 bronco 35w propane auto 4wd
1987 mustang lx 5 speed 2.3L
the mazda
1986 mustang lx 351w auto
the jimmy
the dodge
1990 f150 5L 5 speed 4x4 6" suspension lift, 3" body lift, 33s lol
Now I have my 1996 f350 crewcab shortbox powerstroke 4wd 5speed and a 1990 bronco.
So Im a ford guy, but if it will make me money or rip through the mud IDGAF :rockon

She had owned a 94 F150 before I met her.
I race two 79 Ford Broncos, I will be getting a 87 Bronco for free after I do a plow switch to a 88 Bronco (Not sure if this one is staying road ready or race only)
I have also owned numerous cars for demolition derby (most have been Fords)

So I bleed blue.

I have an appreciation for anything domestic with attitude. But my passion lies with old Ford trucks. I'm 99% Ford, unless we're drag racing then it's MoPar or No Car. :toothless And I have a soft spot for the Tri-5 Chevys and Camaros. *drool*

But the 3 trucks in my life have been Fords.
'65 F100 - first truck and first love. I'll have another one, one day. Maybe soon. :toothless
Then the Broncos. :shrug

I love Fords and Toyotas. Ive had about 10-15 Fords but only 1 Toyota. Both are reliable and easy to fix. Ive never had a Toyota or Ford not start (knowck on wood).

I like GM because they are easy to work on and I have been working on them for years.

i had my dads 85 toyota reg cab s/b 4x4 for a few months in the summer, I beat that thing to hell and back and she still screamed for more. I drug it through a swamp with a friends diesel and 100' of skidder cable...the yota wouldnt make it through the muck (damn bald A/T's), and buddy didnt want to sink his diesel, so we improvised lol.

Strangely enough I made this realization today.

I've always been a chevy guy:
but right now in my pocket are the keys to an expedition and a mustang (my two daily drivers) I had a bronco, but sold it to buy another ford. so the only vehicle i own that is not a ford is my jeep, and it will always run with a chevy under the hood.

I've owned a lot of Fords, but most by chance, not design.

My list of Fords:

1978 Granada (2dr - 5.0L)
1983 T-bird Heritage (3.8L)
1988 Crown Victoria (5.0L)
1992 Ford Bronco (5.8L)

Others:

1972 Charger
1974 Charger
1980 Chev Citation
1988 Toyota Corolla

Truth is, I'm loyal by era. When it comes to 60's & 70's muscle cars, I'm die hard Mopar. By the 80's and 90's, Dodge collapsed on itself, and so my love of Fords grew. Now in the 00's, I think Dodge has really come full circle again, especially with the cars.

And while I hated the styling of the 87-91 Ford trucks, I just don't think Ford has ever let go of the truck market dominance. They are still at the top of my wish list if I were to buy new today.

And while Chev had some real moments of brilliance and innovation throughout, they make the most boring cars on the road today.

I work at a Ford Dealer, daily drive a Chevy, wheel a Ford. Call me whatever you want. Chevy...Ford...Dodge...It's all the same shit, just differant piles...
over the past five years ive been wheeling/driving a Yota so this is a bit of a change. But its cool cuz now working on this I feel like I am back in my own. That Yota and all of the extra crap they stick under the hood really keeps you guessing when suspicious crap goes wrong.

I really don't care what brand it has on it. I buy what fits the pourpse best. Sometimes it might be towing capacity, power, comfort, milage, coolness factor, reliability......whatever


And this is comming from someone with a "Ford" tattoo
