Here's a pic I just got back. A self portrait of me with my rented Mustang down in Cherokee, NC while I was down there a few weeks ago on the business trip.

I got a Nissan. Not by choice, it's just the car my sister was getting rid of when I needed a mode of transport. Pretty damn reliable.

I hate Fords because of the Aerostar. Although my Grandpa F. had a Ford truck long ago that was great.

Re:
Fords prior to about 1974 were pretty reliable. The start of Ford's downfall as far as I'm concerened was the Pinto and the Mustang II though the Shelby Cobra was an exception to that rule. And I've never really liked the body styles of the Mustangs after the early 70's and even the newwer V8s feel underpowered to me. The 429 SCJ engine in my 72 Mustang coupe would paste your butt to the seat during takeoff and had all the power you would ever want. Even the Boss 302 I eventually dropped in it was faster and more powerful than the 302's of today's Mustang GT's. I've had terrible luck with both an 88 and a 94 Ranger I've owned in the last 8 years. One was automatic and the otehr standard and both had major transmission trouble at around 80,000 miles. The 94 met an untimely end in the midsection of a medium sized cow two years ago so I don't have it to cuss at but I do have an 84 F150 which has been fairly reliable if not an utter gas hog.

I drive a VW Jetta righ now that has 267,000 miles on it and still runs like a dream and gets 35-38 mpg. My family has always ben fans of VW. But I think I'll buy a Chevy S-1o next. My Dad has had an 89 S-10 for like 8 years now and no real troubles so far.

Yeah you gotta watch out for those killer cows. I've heard several other Rangers were found in the stomachs of cows around here. Especially the 94s before they learned not to flavor their trucks "alfalfa".
