GM / Ford Merger Talks ... oh boy !

Oh Boy, rumor talks... not that it will happen !

After way too many years of working on my past ford trucks ( notice I said "working on" vs "enjoying the drive of my newly purchased Z71") it will be real nice to return to the old ways.

Let's see, where do I start.........
Body panels that turn to rust before your eyes.
Body bushings that turn to the hardest steel you can imagine.
A ride that resembles a log wagon.
50% reduction in MPG.
Spending cash on additives just to TRY to pass the emissions test.
The smell of raw fuel puking out of the tail pipe on start up.
Spending two hours removing brackets just to get to the plugs.
Tracing down numerous shorts in the tail light systems.
Seats that must have been made by the low bidder to JC Whitney.
Not having the option to pick "rust" on the exterior trim / paint selection.

I'm just getting started.....
The only thing I miss is not having to sweep my garage floor to keep the dust down..... the fluid leaks took care of that !

I'm getting biased real quick guy's. The truck I purchased even though a 99, rides and drives perfect, with excellent maint records that came with it. Even though it has 146k miles it rides and drives like it has 146 miles on it.

Re: GM / Ford Merger Talks ..... oh boy !

GM would have to be in horrid finanacial condition to do this...they are, but still!

My '97 Silverado is so much better a truck than my wife's '01 Expedition. I've never liked Fords (I've had 2...both fairly yucky) and I can't imagine what a GM/Ford baby would look like! Or drive like!

This is the worst news so far this morning...
