I'll tell you what; whenever Chevy is ready,let us know! By that time Ford will already have somethin' faster.You wanna' talk about joke,talk about the 454SS or even the 350SS.

Try a Chevy site... troll....
Wait a minute, there aren't any decent Chevy truck resources on the net. Perhaps that's because Chevy truck owners can barely turn on a computer, much less design a web site. I guess that's why you're hanging out on a Ford truck site.

Hey you guys cut him some slack. Che*y trucks aren't that bad. I pulled a couple out of the same rut once and they seem to pull out pretty easy!

MY dad has had several chevys since he switched over in 1996. we had a 92 x-tended cab 4x4 w/ 350/auto. it has 168k on it now, and is on its 3 alternator.

We also have a 96 Suburban that has 65k and is on its 2nd alternator and had to switch intermitent wiper delay and a few minor things. as well as a 700 dollar ac compressor.

Every Gm vehicle that we have ever had, has needed WAY more maintence and cost WAY more to opperate than a Ford. I have had only minor problems with both of my Fords. WAY YO GO FORD!!!

For towing the Chevy 454 engine can't hold a candle to a Ford 460. I you do heavy towing 10,000 to 15,000 pound trailers, everyone I know that have or had a Chevy replaced engines from 50,000 to 80,000 miles. With a Ford 460 everyone is getting over 100,000 miles, and I'm not talking about towing a trailer once a month, I'm talking about working trucks. We switched from Chevys to Fords, after buying a brand new 454 engine from Chevy that broke towing a trailer. It was towed into the dealership and they found it had an undersized piston, causing premature crank wear among other problems. This was a BRAND NEW ENGINE BOUGHT FROM CHEVY, the only thing the Chevy factory would do was cover parts because it was not installed at a dealership. They should fixed it for free, since they put out a bad engine. I've had a Ford F 350 Supercab Dually bought back from me by Ford because it was a lemon, and I still buy Ford trucks, but I will never buy another Chevy.

You know Glen, I like fixin my Ford. I stick with what I believe in and when you drive a truck, (especially a 4x4) you are going to run into problems. I break stuff and just shrug it off and fix it. I don't drive my truck thinking that it will be non-maintanance or will be problem free like you apparently think that a truck is supposed to be. Oh yeah one more thing. Next Time you feel like posting a message about how good you think your chevy is, put down the Crack Pipe, get hooked on phonics, (in the long run it will be cheaper then fixing the never-ending braking and ABS problems on your GM) and go brag (or whine) on some other site.

Hey Tom did you know that Chevy bought two new
Lightnings when they came availble in May. They
wanted to see what made them so fast and if they
could make anything close to it.

Since this column turned into a Ford vs Chevy column I think I'll throw my 2 cents in.

1. The only reason SB Chevys are so popular is they are a dime a dozen, and everybody can get them cheap. When the market is flooded with anything it just stands to reason that there will be a certain number of misguided souls that think it's a good thing.

2. Conduct your own survey and determine for yourselves why the ratio of older Fords still being used as daily drivers and work trucks (not garage queens and show trucks)is higher than GM?

IS MOSTLY.OIL.PAINT.AND.RUST.
LONG LIVE FORD.
