I got a chuckle reading Norm at OMT as he responded to something Shaun Kenney had posted:
It will take me a couple of days to sort through all of his arguments. But one thing stands out as just dead wrong:
I choose to drive a Ford truck because Chevy trucks break down.
My dear Shaun....remember that Ford stands for "Fix Or Repair Daily."
Norm, you brought back a pleasant memory.
My dad, God rest his soul, worked for Ford. One day during my high school years, I told him that someone had said FORD stood for "Fix Or Repair Daily."
He smiled in his low-key way and said:
"Nope, they got it wrong. It stands for First On Race Day."
The past 30 years I've owned Volvos, Nissans, and Dodge vehicles but I now proudly drive ... a Ford.
Volvo is now owned by Ford, so you can feel free to purchase a Volvo without leaving the Ford family.
LOL. Thanks! I wonder what my dad would say if he had been around to see Ford buy Volvo. He had already passed away when I bought my Volvo station wagon.
Heh! Tell 'em!
I should qualify my statement: I will drive a Ford truck, but Ford cars are terrible to work on. I have an old 86 Ford F-150 that Mrs. Kenney hates, but I love it!
That's OK for SWAC girl to like Ford. Girls aren't expected to know anything about cars.
Like all good Southern girls ... I listened to my daddy. If Fords were good enough for him, they are good enough for me. :)
