Will you only own a Ford?

I know many people post here due to they love the mustang but... are you aginst ever owning a chevy or other sports car ever? What keeps you on this side of things and what, if anything, temps you to go to the other side. This also includes non mustang owners as to what you would like your car to share with the ford product line.

Re: Will you only own a Ford?

As long as it runs and drives and the price is right, Id drive anything.

I know a ton of people that own a certain make and will only drive that make.

Re: Will you only own a Ford?

I use to be a die hard Chevy guy, but my Monte is just giving me sooo many problems that I couldnt care what type of car I get next. Just as long as it isnt Chevy, I've been looking at the new Chargers or thinking about getting a Stang and finally fit in with a group and goto a real car meet

Re: Will you only own a Ford?

Cars I would own:

Mustangs & TransAms.. (MarkuzLS1 body style TransAm.. not sure on the name of it.)

Other than that I dont see me setting foot in a non Ford car. F150 for the truck and car either Stang or TransAm (I would have both lol)

Re: Will you only own a Ford?

I love my stang, but there are so many cars that are higher quality out there. I'll tell you one thing though, I will not ever own a newer chevy truck, the whole drive by wire throttle control is the most annoying thing ever. by god

Re: Will you only own a Ford?

I will own only fords or ford related products...until you drop below 1975. Before that, just about anything is game. The only other exception is an exotic or an H1 or Jeep Wrangler.

Re: Will you only own a Ford?

my mustang is the first car i've owned to myself and I know more about it then other car companies, so as long as I have a sports/muscle car it will be a stang. I'm familiar with the parts and know what can be done with it. However I do like the technology and more powerful/efficient engines in other cars out there.

I really dislike the ignorant people in my auto classes. They say the only way they would drive a ford is if they built it themselves.

Re: Will you only own a Ford?

I love my stang and as far as sports cars go, I don't think I will ever buy anything else. The Chargers are nice but expensive and I would rather spend my money doing mods on a stang by God.

Re: Will you only own a Ford?

I like the GT's and the new '05+ Mustangs are pretty nice. Other than those two, Ford doesn't really have anything that interests me. GM doesn't really have much that interests me any more either (Vette, GTO, Solstice/Sky). I've been an F-Body guy since way back, so I feel kindof abandoned.

I really like the Charger's. If the Challenger comes out looking like it did in those debut auto shows, I'll like it even more. If I ever buy a new car, it could very well be a Dodge.

Other cars on the possibility list include mid-80's Honda (for a gas mileage throw-away daily driver), 88-92 Camaro (always looking for a replacement for The Grey Car), or an '89 Turbo Trans Am (boo-yeah!).

Re: Will you only own a Ford?

i'm partial to ford because I grew up with them. However i've owned a couple chevy's( 85 s10 and 1970 chevelle) i'll own a ford untill the day I die. doesn't mean I wont have any other brands around too. Fiancees family work for GM so it gives me access to their plan if I ever want a GM.

well hey.. if you didn't beat the crap outta your car every day, it might hold up better haha.. its not a mustang

Personally I drive a Buick Regal GS every day.. (and at the moment its faster than my '02 GT was..) but aside from sleeper-factor its not nearly as much fun as the '02 was..

I still have my '92 rustang though.. and an 88 lx notchback sitting and gathering rust..

I had a 87 IROC. For the time it was a cool car but all that stands out was that huge flat dash and it rattled everywhere. I would have a friend of mine every so often drive the car so I could isolate the the rattles. It seemed everything plastic would rattle or squeak.

Man I treat that thing like it was a God, the only time it was ever treated badly was probably when I needed to drive to Pasadena Mon-Sat which is a 40 mile drive going there and coming back. I think I put on....15k miles from doing that 8 months straight. Oh and putting that new sound system in kinda has made the electronics in my car go crazy but other than that I have been taking great care of my car.

Re: Will you only own a Ford?

I'm not partial to any brand. I love mustangs but I'm a firm believer that any company can make a good/great car. Qualtiy and performance are important in my mind and right now there are several cars from several manufacturers that i'd love to own. When I graduate I'm going to upgrade to something a bit quicker than I have now and as of right now it probably won't be a ford, but we'll see.

Re: Will you only own a Ford?

My granddad retired from Ford. My dad worked there for around 15 years. If it doesn't have a blue oval on it, I don't want anything to do with it.

Some people say brand loyalty is stupid. I am a very stupid person.

Yup. same = say. Either way, it's all the say.
