You 2 are trying to start a Furd vs. Chebbie fight
Muddyless Bronco: Probably about what it's cost me so far to keep the Bronco where it's at! This thing has been a money pit with nothing to show for it--Although I'm not saying that because it's a Ford, it's just been ridden hard and put away wet, but not by me. I got it cheap, but it wasn't as solid as I had hoped it was. I've actually pussy-footed around with this thing for fear it'll just fall apart if I hit a bump too hard.
I have owned 3 Fords and all three were junk or about to be junk. However, it's easy to say that it's because they were Fords, but I dont' think that's quite fair. The first one, a Bronco II, I bought knowing that it overheated quite a bit. Well, the engine locked up on it, go figure. The second, an 83 F150 was a gas hog with no power that ate transmission like Homer Simpson eats donuts. The 83 Bronco has actually been the best of the bunch.
I've owned 5 Chevies. One got wrecked, I sold one and still have the others without any major complaints. However, these were treated better (except maybe the Blazer....that guy wheeled hard in this thing). The 89 IROC was kept by a car freak who probably added sunblock to the seats if he went driving (it was originally purchased by a lottery ticket winner....kewl car).
The 84 Z28 was running when I bought it, but since then I've replaced everything but the driveshaft, rear end and steering components. Now, it will just take a pounding and is my drag strip car. I also owned a 72 Bel Air that was my Great Grandmothers. She drove it a whopping 3500 miles between 1973 and 1998. My Great Grandfather actually had a heart attack in that car and died in it when it was just a few weeks old. See, Chevies will kill ya!
So back to the Ford vs Chevy deal:
I always enjoy a good fight! Where's the popcorn?
