    Ford vs. Chevy debate ignites shooting

    A classic discussion regarding which truck is better, Chevrolet or Ford, doesn’t end well:

    Ford vs. Chevy debate ignites shooting at Virginia family dinner
    Randy Essex
    Detroit Free Press
    May 1, 2019

    Memo from Detroit:

    No, no, no, don't take it this far. We love our cars and trucks and a lot of folks here are passionate about their hometown brands.

    But, Virginia authorities say, a man in Bedford County went way overboard.

    Mark Edwin Turner, 56, is charged with felony malicious wounding, use of a firearm in the commission of a felony, and possession of a firearm by a felon after an argument — at a pre-Easter dinner, no less — between Turner and his girlfriend's son about whether Chevy or Ford is better.

    Do you think the Chevrolet fan pulled the knife or went to get a gun? Explain why you think that (logic)

    Don't like how they tried to implicate weed for this...if they would've smoked their green plants, this wouldn't have happened.

    I always knew you could not trust Ford fans. They get violent when confronted with truth

    Ford...Chevy...doesn't really matter, truck douches are going to be truck douches. Sad part is that neither probably owned a late model ford/chevy truck, my $$$ is on being owners of a 93 F150 & a 96 Silverado.

    Anyway, what's the over/under on the amount of confederate flags they have flying outside their trailer? 4.5

    Lol, morons. Just can't wait for this pointless make vs make rivalry crap to die, it's getting better, but the holdouts are just as obnoxious as any. Definitely more entertaining now that I'm not a closed-minded one brand fanboy anymore.

    The real interesting thing is the rivalry amongst sibling brands. For example, the GTO and Pontiac pages are obnoxious when it comes to Chevelles, and Chevy's in general.

    But a lot of people on here need to read and memorize this last line in the article:
    "Ford, General Motors and Fiat Chrysler all make really good vehicles. Be cool. "

    Chevy and Ford fans agree on one thing, we’d rather push our trucks than drive Dodges/Rams/whatever they’re calling them now.

    How about those Ram sales being up 25%?

    Think Silverado is still down 20%? Or maybe they're only down to 15% behind this month?

    But don't let pesky facts get in the way of being an obnoxious fanboy on a thread about obnoxious fanboys.

    Ford and GM guys are diehards. Dodge/Ram girls go which ever the way the wind blows.

    Absolutely - Dodge is killing it right now.

    The test will be in 5 or 10 years. Dodge trucks have not held up well over the years. My neighbor can tell you all about it.

    At the 15 year mark, iseecars reports that 6.3% of Ram 1500/Dodge Ram owners in the U.S. still own and operate their trucks. For comparison, here are the numbers for other full size pickup truck models (percent of owners keeping their truck for 15 or more years):

    • Toyota Tundra: 15.7%
    • Chevrolet Silverado 1500: 8.4%
    • GMC Sierra 1500: 7.4%
    • Ford F-150: 6.3%


    Average for all cars & light trucks: 6.8%
