    I am sure it is not just me, but for some reason it looks like there are allot of ford pictures coming up on here.....

    I know some people own both GM and Ford, but this is a GM site........

    You mean in the ads?

    Ads that are displayed on the site are different for everyone. If you spend time looking at Ford sites and searching for ford stuff, you will get a lot of Ford ads, whereas someone who searches for health food will see ads for that sort of stuff on the sites they visit. That is controlled by Google.

    I don't spend any of my time searching for Ford products but right this very moment there is an ad at the top of the page with a direct link to ford.com.

    Privoxy works wonders for frying the ads.

    Maybe Ford is sending us subliminal messages that we think we can ignore but next year we'll inadvertently buy a Ford.

    I posted about my anniversary on Facebook last week... All of the sudden I started getting ads for crisis and suicide hotlines! LOL! True story!

    LOL.... Closet ford person...... right.... If I was going to leave my GM for some other car manufacturer it would be a company like Toyota who will agree to warranty everything while "I" own the vehicle...... including the transmission so I don't have to spend $3000 that should not fall apart at less than 400,000 miles.... (4L60E is a piece of crap).

    But no, no Ford....:rofl: A ford would require a transmission rebuild at every 50,000.

    Not only that, but its contextually relevant as well, so if the subject of the post is "Ford", then that's what you're going to see. Clicking on them every now and again will only cost them a couple of bux every now and again.

    I saw an Expedition go up in flames a few years back in a parking lot. While unfortunate for the owner, the sight itself was intriguing. I'm not saying it was cool, but it was the only car fire I had ever seen at the time.

    I've only had one car catch fire on me but it was a ruptured fuel cell and it wasn't funny one bit

    Yes, when you are driving the car that catches fire, it is not funny. But it is interesting when you see it happen. I saw one catch on fire on 40 near wade avenue a few years ago. I forgot what it was though.
