I've decided, as far as I'm concerned, there are ONLY old Fords. This crap they make now is worthless.

Yeah, we're pretty sure the work truck is about to get it's third transmission. It has just over 7500 miles.

Not gonna argue about the new fords, my last 3 cars: Buick Le sabre, rusted in half, literally the whole front subframe fell out of it on the way to work one morning.

Chrysler Concord had an oil leak that caught fire and burnt beyond fixing.

Ford Taurus, transmission just went out no warning. I left the grocery store every thing was fine, 4 stop signs later the trans just quits, no forward, no reverse, no nothing.

I just bough another Lesabre because I really liked the last one before it broke in half. The newer one sucks, the only reason I drive it at all is because the 69 pickup is so hard on gas and I drive 20 miles each way to work.

My newest Ford is a 2001 F-350 with the 7.3 Power Stroke. Its probably one of the last good trucks Ford made. The oldest one? Well, it would be a '36 coupe. But that one is missing a few parts.

Hey guys, I'm going to be flying out of DFW next Wednesday. And ya know, if anyone has an empty spot in their backyard that my car could hang out in for a week, and a ride to the airport, it'd be worth a nice dinner to me...

I imagine it might be too far to park your car in Cali.

considering that if you could park it in California, you could have just drove it to Wyoming in the first place!
