One thing I did notice in years past (when I worked for places that had company cars) was that the Fords were the same condition at 65,000 miles that the Chryslers were at 40,000 as the Chevs were at 100,000. (I even worked for a place that had some AMCs in the mix, too. We won't speak about those as this is a family site!)
I've owned 16 Chevrolets of my own, they all made it to 100,000!
No...not each!

C6 or 4 spd? What color? If it is a stick and is "Bullitt" Green, I may need to be held back.......

I am just NFG at working on Frod engines but I know a guy who can get 500 plus hp outta one of those ol' FE motors. (I can get that out of a small block Chevy, but still....)

And there is a guy around here with a black '68 440 Charger R/T and......

Hey I'm with you Floyd. I don't have a Ford right now but should I get another American car, it will probably be a Ford. I like the idea that they don't have to borrow money from the government to make the company run properly.

Well Donna, there we were happy as a clam and way off topic in Carol's thread, picking on Floyd ( after he threatened to do something unnatural to a Taurus). The next thing you know we're not in Kansas anymore. I think Fred came up with the clever title. Raz.

oh,,,and as for focus,,, i manage a fleet of 40 cars for the state of michigan. we have right now 23 focus in my fleet. and i will say,,,, if i can keep state drivers from running into stuff with them,,,they give me the least trouble of any car i have had in the last 15 years. about half of them are going on 100,000 miles now and will be replaced in the next few months.

oh,,,P.S. our drivers really don't run into much. we put on over 800,000 miles a year on this fleet and in 15 years have only totaled 3 cars.
