Thread: Why are you a GM man?

Why are you a GM man?
Why do you drive a GM?
Were you always born a Chevy man and you haven't driven anything else?
Were you a Ford/Dodge/Toyota man and for one reason or another switched? Why?
Did you perform market research and determined that Chevy was best for you?

For me, personally I like to look of the Dodge trucks, but I have always like the Chevy power and quality. I have owned a '98 Dodge Ram 1500, but I have always been around and interested in Chevy.

Can someone make this into a poll? I can't seem to figure it out or maybe I don't have enough posts under my belt.

Years ago I tried the others and went back to GM forever. Also when I was a SnapOn tool distributor I went to all the dealerships and I would go into Ford and Dodge dealers service departments and there would be brand new trucks/cars, some with as little as 150 miles on them and the engines would be out laying on the shop floors.This was a regular thing at Ford and Dodge, it was very rare at the GM dealers. Even the Ford mechanics hated the Fords.LOL. I also like GM's stylings.

I wont lie, I like the larger size of the F250, solid front axle, but when shopping it was the interior comfort (seating comfort). we will do long trips and its much better in the chevy than a ford (dont worry I still rip on the Fords to all the ford guys). I've had multiple chevy's, fords and toyotas (my 1990 toyo 4x4 kicked arse, but obviously not that much interior room. I love my chevy and always liked them but wish it had a SFA and I could fit 37's no problem with a 6-8" lift like the ford. I've always liked the chevys though(starting with my dads 79 lifted K20 when I was growing up).

I guess i've always liked chevy because my dad had a '79 Custom Delux flatbed with a 454. After that he got a '95 C1500 4.3. (My truck now). He owns a dodge now but I guess it's because I grew up with a chevy that I like them. Plus my truck has over 230k and still runs great. For me they have always been reliable and always get me where I need to go.1995 C1500 4.3L 2WD. JET TBI Spacer, JET stage 1 chip, 10mm Taylor custom wires, Pulstar Iridium Pulse Plugs.
260k miles and still going strong...

The below picture is the reason i am a GM man and will never own a FORD again. This 2002 ford excursion with the 7.3 powerstroke was supposed to be the baddest SUV built. bad isnt the word.One night while eating dinner, i heard a roar coming from my attached garage. when i opened the side door,the Excursion was Engulfed in flames along with my garage and contents. if this happened while i was asleep, i wouldnt have lived to type this. Enough reason to never own a Ford again? I think so!

Guess I have always leaned toward Chevy. My dad was never a Ford man, so GM products are in my blood. I consistently like the look of the Chevy vs. Ford trucks.

Pops was a Gm man and still is. You could either follow or get the heck out of the family. Ford owners in extended family are forced to sit in a corner at reunions. Had on brother in law pump up his ford and it ended in a drag race. Me ? 72 Monte Carlo with warmed 350. Him big block ford. Race? After half a mile I looked back and saw steam and fluids all over the ford. He hasn't spoken to me since. 15 years ago it was.

I grew up with a Ford guy for a father, so naturally I was a ford guy. Then I got older to the point of buying my own vehicles and started doing the research. At the time I began doing this, Chevy was fairly consistently the leader in back seat space, HP, reliability. Granted, these days they lose here and there depending on the year but at this point I just love Chevy Trucks. So unless Ford or Dodge does something extreme, I'll stay a Chevy guy. I must admit though, when it comes time for another truck, I hope for the sake of GM they have a valid Raptor competitor... otherwise....

I have owned only Gm vehicles since around 1990. I currently drive a '07 Suburban 1500 Ls and my wife drives a Malidu. Been happy with GM and don't see myself driving anything else.
