Started out a Mopar Man - owned 173's to 413's
No "426 Hemis" 1 of the BEST EVER high
performance motors ever from factory !!
Next was a couple small block Chevy's - SS 327
Impala 1965 "one tough drive train"
Never owned a Ford until after gaining employment with Ford.
1st 1988 ranger 4cyl. "automatic trans sucked"
2nd 1992 Taurus Wagon "KIDS" 3.0 motor and trans was rough in Colorado and the wind noise led to a trade on a 1995 V-6 Contour :"more troubel than
my 19973 Doge Dart" My next Ford a 1997 T-Bird Sport has been the BEST
CAR EVER !!
MY wife owns a 2002 Focus Wagon "So Far So Good"
I have been around cars all my life - My best friend owns a salvage yard
repair shop. If anyone was to ask him " what motor is the BEST - a GM
3.8 or the Ford 3.8 - He has replaced many more Ford 3.8's than GM's
for his customers - Proof Positive that over all the GM 3.8 is more durable.
