Ford or just mustangs?

Curious on wether u guys are ford men, or just like the mustangs? Personally i'm a ford guy. Have owned 2 non fords since I got my liscense. One was a 91 beretta GT, spun the rod bearings, replaced the motor and sold it. Also had a 84 or 85 dodge K-car, worthless POS lasted me about 5 months and got rid of it. As for fords, I've had a 77 mustang,79 mustang,80 F250, 95 ranger,94 mustang, 92 lincoln, 81 grenada, 91 probe GT, 92 probe, 81 full size bronco, 80 full size bronco, 89 cougar,92 thunderbird. I think thats it since '96. i know it seems like a lot but only 2 had problems(my fault) and one of the ended up in the junk yard(again my fault). Have always made more money off them than what was put in them. What have you had?

Re: Ford or just mustangs?

For the most part we're car guys in general with ford emphasis..

As you can see I drive a GM, also..

I've had a lot more cars than that since 2001 so we're good (14 in total - 5 of those were mustangs)

First car was a 1986 honda prelude.. hated the hell out of it, but it was FREE (for the cost of getting it running and out of their yard) biggest POS ever, hated it with a passion, when clutch started slipping I dumped it..

A bunch of other truly crappy cars not worth mentioning.. several buicks thrown in (72 skylark - still have this but its rotting away in southern NJ... - 86 regal, 91 century, 91 regal, 03 regal) as mentioned before, 5 mustangs (2 new edge, and 3 foxes) 2 monte carlos (a 97 and a 98)

Re: Ford or just mustangs?

I've had plenty of Fords, but I've also had my share of imports. LOL However, now I've only got a '97 Expedition and my '09 Mustang and couldn't be happier.

Re: Ford or just mustangs?

Between my family (Mom, Dad, two brothers, and me) have owned 5 rangers, 2 Fusions, a Mazda B2500 (almost a Ford), Focus, a 94 Mustang GT, 99 Mustang GT, 2001 Cobra, 2003 Cobra, and 2004 Cobra. And I'm sure my parents had some cars back in the day I can't think of like a Fairmont and stuff.

Re: Ford or just mustangs?

Well, I've only owned one car, my current mustang. My family has had mostly GM or Dodge ~ 99 yukon (wrecked), 00 impala, 01 impala, 84 ram(slant six), spirit, cavailer, 71 challenger, 95 astro van

I do like the 09 CTS sitting next to mine in the garage. For a 4,000lb sedan, it does haul *** when you want, and amenities are rediculous.

I like to say I'm a car guy in general. But since I've owned a ford for 4 years now, I definitely wouldn't mind owning another one, whether it be another mustang or a F-150.

Re: Ford or just mustangs?

Only FORDs nothing else and that is all I will ever buy. My whole family owns FORDs, Moms got an 2005 LS, Dads got an 2002 F150 and a 2003 SVT Cobra, and I got a 2006 Mustang and hopefuly down the road a 2010 Taurus SHO. "I'd rather push my FORD than drive your import."

Re: Ford or just mustangs?

Because of a positive experience, I will stick with ford, but if I had to buy anything else, it would be American...**** that import ****. It's just a bunch of stereotypical bull**** that American cars don't last and perform like import cars...well at least the older cars.

I hate ford. Always liked mustangs. And GM doesn't make a car with a v8 rear wheel drive and two doors besides corvettes which i'm not a big fan of.

Re: Ford or just mustangs?

I've had 6 Fords, 2 Jeeps, and 1 Dodge. I probably would have gotten an F-250 instead of the Dodge if the 6.0 Powerstroke wasn't such a piece of ****. I don't really care too much about brand though, as long as its a reliable DD or a project I want.

Re: Ford or just mustangs?

I bleed blue too, and I try and get everyone I know to own a Ford, but I do love all cars. I'm 22 and have owned three cars since I was 17. All three were Fords, a 2000 Escort ZX2, 1998 Mustang and currently a 2002 Mustang GT.

I'd buy Ford first, European if I can afford it (excluding British), then Chrysler, some imports, GM, then the last of the imports.

actually the oppositehas happened. I told one of my friends to stop driving his 2000 Toyota Camary because it is a unsafe piece of crap and to get a Ford. Yell he got hit by a drunk driver that was going 65mph and his airbags didnt go off, he was hurt bad they almost had to amputate his left leg (they took him to a different Doc and saved his leg). So he took up my suggestion and has bought a Ford Fusion and just loves the thing.

Re: Ford or just mustangs?

I consider myself a Ford guy first. I did have a Silverado before i got my Mustand and that truck was a POS. First the ABS went out and the part to fix it was $700 so after that i drove with no ABS. Also my dashboard was pealing. Sold it to my cousin and he ended up having to get a new fuel pump shortly after that. If i get another truck it would be an F150 or Ranger most likely if i buy new, if I buy used price would likely play a bigger part in my purchase. If i buy a sedan I would rather have something rwd so with Pontiac going away that would likely be a Charger or a German car at the moment. I do like the new Taurus but too bad it's not a rear driver.

I think I finally got one of my friends to pick up a Ford, he is currently gauging interest in a Sport Trac. He had 2 older explorers (I think one was a '96) and he hated them, turned him off to Ford. BUt he's also had many cars and has always wanted a Foxbody, he used to be and still is a huge Mustang fan.

Re: Ford or just mustangs?

I am a Mustang person. Depsite all the problems and crap my car has given me, I still like it. I'm more of an all around car person though. I like Camaro's, Silverados, Dodge Rams, Jeeps, etc.
