That chevy is still on the road, and the ford, well, it's probably a rusty beam in a building in beijing.
I guess when you can't do much but run the road a few miles a day it's hard to wear it out huh???
hehehe.....mine runs fine, just fine......no, really, when I started work from the company I retired from, I drove a Dodge for a few years, they were terrible, then many years in different chevy's, and the last 15 years in a few fords. The fords really liked the gas pump, and after a few years they would start running like crap, the ck engine light would come on and it would take a $1200.00 tune up to get it back on the road. I have personally owned chevrolets(trucks) since 1979 and never had one in the shop, until the one I have now, it's a 2015 and there is some problem with the drivers side electric seat. It's all about what you like. I think second hand chevys sell quicker and for a higher price.
I've owned vehicles from all of them. Right now 2 Fords sit in the drive. If I need a vehicle and a Chevy fit the need I'd buy it. I'm not brand snobbish.
I've had trouble with them all, except my 2001 ford f350 7.3 diesel. And it gave me a little trouble after 14 years and over 200,000 miles. Wait, I have a 1990 Toyota truck with 336,000 miles with only maintenance and new clutch. Got an 05 Dodge with Cummins still going strong but only 50,000 miles, so we'll see.
I bought a 1992 F250 used in 1996 for $2500.00 cash and drove it 273,000 miles then in 2013 I sold it for $2500.00 cash.
Bought a 1969 power wagon at an auto auction for 600 bucks put 90K on it replaced the motor with a 125 dollar junk yard replacement and a new clutch put another 149k on it and sold it for 2500 cash Wish I had never sold it!
