Had some bad luck over the years with Fords... and some equally bad luck with GM... but I have remained a pretty loyal buyer of GM for a good long time...so i will stay with GM. Till something a whole lot better comes along.

This is Chevy America!! (See my profile pic) My first truck was a chevy and named "Chevy America", my current truck in the pic is "Sierra America" and the 'vette needs no name. Im extremely loyal to chevy trucks, possibly blindly loyal, I dont know and I dont care.

Thank you... we just bought the yellow monster...actually 2 weeks back. High rise edelbrock manifold, 396 CID, twin holley 4's and a muncy 4 speed... pull right now high 7's and low 8's, but that is going to change...i want it a lot faster... and Sharon's son is a great speed mechanic.

The blue silverado has the 454 in her... we needed that because of the horse trailers I pull around, and the camper. Terrible on gas mileage but it sure is comfortable...

We had tried to get the 4 speed tranny but it was just easier to have the auto in it... and not as spendy.

The 89 GMC is all stock under the hood and basically with the exception of the 6" body lift kit the rest is stock on it...

And the old bronze colored p/u .... all orgiinal with the exception of the lift kit..

We lost a couplf older p/u in the grass fire last month... but we hope to start rebuilding thisa winter when the weather all cools down and it is kinda like going into the caves... gives me something to do in the dead of winter...

General Motors / Chevrolet sucked years ago. Owned a few of them for a short time each and the cars / trucks were all unreliable garbage. GM is even worse now that the corporation has been taken over by union thugs and commy subversives. Screw Government Motors . . . it should have gone belly up years ago.

The last Ford product that I owned was a 1972 M151A2 military jeep. That's it! We currently own a 2001 Subaru Forester (235K), 1985 Mercedes 300D diesel sedan (112K) , 1994 Toyota 4x4 Hilux pickup truck (135K) and a 2011 Hyundai Sonata (754 miles). The first three vehicles have been incredibly reliable and trouble free. The Sonata is new and we hope to keep it for many years and drive that one into the ground too.

I like Ford and Chevy... Ford is definitely my favorite. Every Ford my family ever owned has lasted forever. My F-150 has 400,000 on it, and I still trust it. When they get old, though, they can eat you up with little electric problems.

I don't care for Dodge all that much. I've never seen one older than 15 years old around here that wasn't sitting in a yard with a cracked block or something similar. I don't like the way they look or drive...

But it's all about how you take care of it.

The only thing Dodge has going for it is the Cummins Diesel engines!!!

I had a new ford once less than a hundred miles decided to take some feed to the barn it got stuck, on flat ground with dew on the grass, major elect problems at 75k and trans went out at 85k. Now my chevy work van 250k on it and the only thing its been in the shop for is to get new brake pads. I will stick to what does what I want it to do.

I've never driven a Dodge with a Cummins Diesel engine, my only experience with Cummins is in big 18 wheelers.

Ford or Chevy? I am very partial to Fords. Both make a good vehicle but it all depends on what you like. Find the one you like and learn as much about the vehicle as possible.

Neither "newer" Ford or "any" Chevy. Through painful and costly experience, General Motors vehicles of the past 30-years are to be avoided.

For a Bug Out vehicle . . . get an older Toyota pickup 4-cylinder R22 motor equipped truck and/or a pre-1985 Benz diesel with cast iron 617 5-banger engine. These are vehicles that are still knocking around in every insurgency ridden third world swill hole on the planet earth by the thousands. Easy to fix with inexpensive parts in abundance. Have owned numerous of both vehicles and non of them every failed or left me stranded.

It's also the K.I.S.S. rule! "Keep it simple stupid".

I used to be incredibly brand loyal to Ford. Then I grew up. I've owned Fords and Chevys, and currently own a '98 Dodge 1500 4WD. I've seen diamonds and lemons in all of them. I now look for a truck that will do what I need it to do, in good condition, at a price that I can pay cash for.

I also own a '99 Chevy Suburban 1500 4WD. I don't mind owning a GM product as long it's older than 2010. I won't say 'never', but I don't intend to own a GM product made after they became Government Motors.

I have both actually, and a Toyota as well. I would not but a GM product now if I had to. After getting the bail out money and lying that it is now all "paid off" those guys can suck air as far as I am concerned! My daily driver is a 1982 Toyota SR-5 pick-up. She ain't pretty but she is paid for and depedable....which makes her pretty to me!

Right you are. I have a R22 in that Toyota truck of mine with 270k miles on it. Runs like a dang champ.
