A woman at work (pro Ford) literally almost came to blows with a guy co-worker (pro Chevy) over their brands. An argument so loud that the were told to stop. Two grown adults. WHY is this debate never ending? Do you know anyone still involved in such childish games?

I had a very close friend in high school who would literally fight you if you said something derogatory about Fords. At that time I drove a ten-year old '56 Fairlane so I was safe.

I've driven mostly GMs for the past forty years but now I'm back to Fords. Even my tractors are Fords nowadays.

It stems from a long time rivalry between Chinese Food (Chevrolet) and Mexican Food (Ford) lol.

Regardless, neither brand has built a decent full size truck that coould hold a candle to the mid 70s full size Jeep or International. So there. Nanny-nanny-boo-boo you !@#$%^&*()

Or like the Hatfields and the Mc Coys.

Adults arguing about a brand, we were doing that crap in the 5th grade. But we never fought over it, just rib each other.

Truth is as I have learned, both had their share of cool cars, good cars and junk cars.

And both had their merits and demerits on parts.

understand that the ford vs chevy debate has been going on since very early in the 20th century. at one time the chevrolet brothers actually made performance parts for ford engines until they stepped out and started their own company to rival ford. but as noted it is the same with other things, yankess vs the red sox/dodgers, or the cowboys vs the redskins/eagles/giants, or any other rivalry that has roots from long ago. some other long lived rivalries, navy vs army, arizona vs asu, usc vs ucla. generally it is all in good fun, unfortunately some people take it to the extreme and ruin it for everyone else.

I thnik lookingat both they still make a lkarge amount of their profits on truck and SUVs. But Frod is way ahead IMO of become more a modern based makers of cars. The coming markets are really overseas i emrging markets and more so i the future. thsoe trauks and SUvs will not mena as much there or will they if gasoline contimues to raise over tiem which I thni it will. Both have a long ways to go to be competitive i a small car world market IMO.That we determine if and now they survive in the future.
