I think a lot of it is from the 80s and 90s. All of the cool guy tv shows had GM vehicles. Look at the A-team van and the GMC truck from Fall Guy. A lot of PR for GM.

I could careless what people say about my fords.

I do like the argument for Chevy lovers that Ford didn't take government money.

Because my new ford is the only vehicle that loves to get my windows dirty everytime i spray windshield washer.

That's laughable enough.


Still, it won't try to kill me by cutting brakes or speed me out of control, i guess i could have it worse.

My dad hated the ford of the 80s when the first fuel injected came out, he liked his 1979 f150 351w but being a mechanic he saw how troublesome the first attempts at fuel injections were. Since they improved fuel injection in 30 yrs, my dad was pretty impressed with my Ranger. He used to work at Mazda in the late 90s and early 00s and said the B series were decent, but fell behind other competitors. I was glad to see that he was happy that 2011 was twice the truck he was used to seeing and I quite agree. I don't even look at Tacos anymore. I drive a Ford Ranger, and thats that

Its just an opinion from some people from bad experience or lack of knowledge. No big deal to me, they can say what they want, I know what I got!

Who cares if people give you shit for what you drive? Seriously? That's your worry in your life right now? It's a vehicle. It gets you from point a to point b. Ignore the retards and move on. Laugh it off. Cry about it secretly. There's more important things to worry about (ESPECIALLY in these times we're in now) then to think about what others think of you or your truck.

youre right good point. i just downsized from my 4x4 f150 to my 99 ranger now. ppl ask me always why would i go back to a 2wd. Why? because for the little offroading i did it wasnt worth it, the gas either. i spend half as much on this truck. and for spending 97% of my driving in clear conditions, who needs it.

when i had a big truck ppl say why did you get that you dont really use it as a truck. well i pay for it i can do what i want. get a 2wd and they say why would you do that.

you cant win either way so just do what you want. i like my ranger better haha
