We need to educate others

I would like to say that I am a Ford Man, as were my fathers before me. What we need to do is educate the rest of the population. You too can help at home by educating others and by ignoring one small block Chevy everyday. When someone comes into your shop or other place of employment and asks something unforgivable like "say bro do you have a water pump for a 350", respond first with a look like your going to rip their head off. If that doesn’t work see how their feet like the hot tank. (Please consult local laws before applying feet to hot tank)

My family is doing its part My daily driver is a '66 Fairlane, my mother drives an '04 Explorer, my sister drives a '00 Mustang, and my brother has an '03 Ranger. Before that my parents had a ton of different Ford vehicles, including a '69 Mustang, an '86 F250, and an '88 Country Squire station wagon. I remember after I first bought my Fairlane, a guy at work came up to me and asked why I didn't buy a Chevy. My only response before I walked away was "why the fvck would I do that?!" Damn Chevy people.

All I have is Fords, and all I'll ever own is Fords. Heck, even some of the Chevy guys I know have 'em. They know what's best for them, they just won't admit it.

So what if that person in your hypothetical asks for a set of motorcraft plug wires for his 460 to go along with the sbc water pump? See I have "a friend" that happens to run both Fords and Chevys

When I hear people (assholes) say "Chevy's are better than Ford's, that's why there's more of them" - I respond by saying "the reason there's more Chevy's is because there's more horses asses than horses". That usually shut's them up!

Taxman, the correct response to that would be to sell the spark plugs $$$ and then apply the feet to the hot tank, or for a less violent approach place a 460 water pump in the 350 box (Auto Zone does things like this all the time and never goes out of business). When the customer comes back to complain about fitment tell them "look inside the box my son,for it holds the answers to life".

(I really need to quit messing with this guy, his name is Taxman after all)

Rampage815, I would like to commission you for a black-bag-job. At this race track you work at are Chevy powered race cars. These Chevy powered race cars have oil pans equipped with drain plugs. You see, some times drain plugs come loose before a race. You see, sometimes this happens.

I really hate when someone is so stuck on chebbies makin so much power. I was helping with the clean up of a BBC block for one of the instructors at the local tech college, it was jokingly suggested that he get a 460 he got pissed and yelled the BBC would always out run the BBF. I said you just havent run against the right BBF. I mean he is the champion in his class at Prescott but you just cant sumarily dismiss the 460 that way. He started talkin about all the myths that are associated with the 460. I went to the computer room and printed the advantages of the 460 over the BBC from Paul's site and put them on his desk, dont know what happened to em but he proly threw them away. Oh and he drives every day a FORD ranger he said is one of the best vehicles he's ever owned, and his wife drives an Explorer Sporttrac. Go figure.

Fords rule.

I've got my yellow '78 Fairmont, a spare '78 Fairmont, a '96 F250 CC 4X4, and a '75 Bronco. My son who still lives at home drives an '03 Ranger and my other son drives a '08 Fusion and owns an '89 Ranger and a '75 Bronco. I drove Chevys once. I'm sticking with Fords from here on out.

I dont have a problem with Chevy's as a vehicle...its the Chevy/Redneck mentality that is a turn-off!!

As the world turns...I get more dizzy!
