06 SS S/C vs 03 Stang GT V8

So last night me and abunch of my buddys just went crusin and we stopped at this strip we know of. There were about 8 cars i beleive, SS, Stang GT, TC, SER, RSX-S, MAXIMA, WRX, CIVIC. So anyway, we were just toolin around and the GT was beating everyone except the RSX because he didnt race. But it was my turn so i was like wtf, we took off and we were dead even all thru 1st and 2nd, then after shifting to 3rd i started pullin and had him by a car. Just an intake/exhaust vs Stock. But i didnt think i was gonna do that well. I wasnt going to but everyone there thought i could beat it or be very close so i said wtf. lol and the outcome was good

Sometimes I just don't get Americans... can somebody ACTUALLY explain this Ford v Chevy thing to me? Like seriously... what does blind brand loyalty actually get you?

So far I've had a T-bird SC, SVT Contour, and now an 05GT - it's not that I have a particular hardon for Fords... they've just happened to be the right car at the right time for me. For instance, if the SS s/c had been out in 99 when I was buying the Contour, I woulda been driving the GM product (minus that "wing" thingy on the back)

I guess it's like your politics too - I have an American friend who's a very staunch republican. I asked her why one time and she said "my mom and I always watch the RNC together, it's just what we do". So I asked again, and she said something to the effect of "because my mom does" (girl is 25). Long story short she didn't have an actual reason other than "because that's what we do" - and I wonder where blindly following a party leads you? Not that I really care which way people vote, it just strikes me as very odd that it often seems people's decisions are based on "because" rather than actually going through some sort of decision process

Reliability!!! That is my reason, and it is all based on experience. My first car was a Ford. Damn thing could smell a good paycheck. That is when it would decide to breakdown, everytime without fail. Followed up by a Geo Storm. The Storm was mostly a knock off Isuzu Stylus. It wasn't easy to mod and was always had some sort of problem before I started modding. It became more reliable after modding, but some stock parts that should have been able to handle what I was pushing would break such as the exhaust manifold itself and then the problem was that parts were too expensive. I then took over my bros. 89 Camaro RS v6 5-speed payments and it was very reliable while he bought a Toyota Corolla. Damn thing always had a problem. He was one of the more unfortunate ones that had to have his engine replaced under warranty due to sludge build up. He was/is religious about changing oil every 3000 miles. The Camaro lasted over 350,000 miles before it was taken by a Ford Expedition at 45 mph. I was completely stopped. Not only was that the end of the Camaro, but also my career in the Marine Corps. Ironically, I had just placed a 88 Pontaic Fiero GT in my garage about 5 minutes earlier. I bought is for $2500 and got about 70,000 miles out of it in 3 years before it had a fuel injector fail. Based on that reliability I decided to stay with GM.

I think it could be like rooting for a sports team. Take me and the Cubs, for example. My grandchildren probably won't live to see them win a World Series, but I'll never EVER root for another team over them. Sure, I could like another team and admit it's better, but I'll always look to my team first.

Can't speak for all americans but the "blind brand loyalty" for me is about the past. Ridin' in the chevy fleetside pickup w/ my granddad, hearing the stories of his past. My uncle and his 68 Nova SS, first car I learned to drive, damn that thing was fast, first time I went over 100 mph. The '85 Monte Carlo my dad owned, Moms celebrity wagon. I saved 800 dollars to buy my first car, 1969 Impala that needed body work but the engine was good. Nope, for me it's different, I don't think my loyalty is blind there was some history to it.

Plus I did investigate a little about the car before I bought it I'm not that blind sheesh.

Oh and to the original poster Nice Kill.
