Sure Ford and other American auto companies have had their ups and downs, produced many great vehicles, Cudas, Yankos and Shelby's etc. All have had their not so good adventures as well, Pinto, Mustang II's, Vega's etc.. It is unfortunate that GM is now government owned but I do own a 07' Chev Dura Max pre-government motors and it holds it's own against any PU on the market, In MY OPINION the finest pick up today on the market. My point is and my OPINION: support American companies when at all possible !! I am a true classic GM fan, but as time has passed as mentioned in my last post, I now have a true appreciation for Mustangs, but that will never take away my appreciation for all American classics including Mopar, GM and Ford...Who knows, I may look for a classic Mopar for my next purchase. Yea, a 1970 Cuda convertible would look great next to the Mustang in the shop.
