Re: Ford chickens out again

The article I read in MM&FF stated that there is not much of a market for 50k trucks. My theory would of been to still produce the trucks and let Joe Wrench modify to what they want. Think about it, 30k for the truck, about 8k in upgrades to stomp the viper. And, there is still money left over to take the family to Disney.

I don't know if you know what Bubba currently drives, or wants to drive, but that's funny.


Ford has kinda been disappointing with their motors. They were almost 2 years late with the 5.0 cammer, and they're $15k. I think they put too many engineers on the GT40 and got caught napping on everything else. No 05 Cobra, ass kicked by the Hemi, no Lightning...

Re: Ford chickens out again

Ford lost their nuts a long time ago. Especially when it came to want they would produce for the average consumer. Way too conservative.

Yup, take a look at the 1 measly engine available in the new Five Hundred.
