Sounds like the leftist controlled auto unions are getting involved.

Wow! Cutting off your nose just to spite your face has just turned the wheel hard enough left that something is bound to break.

It's not happening....the Ford Honcho told them to stick it. :lol:

BTW, did you know GM is giving away a free puppy with every vehicle purchase? It keeps people company when they have to walk home all the time. :)

For GM buyers? Probably a little fluffy yapper of some kind...

How cool would it be, if the employees who called for this, get laid off because of the production slowdown. :D

That is certainly a possible result. Maybe even a probable one if Ford were to be stupid enough to do it. Sounds as if Ford will continue to use Police Interceptor models to test street modifications of race inspired technology innovations. It doesn't bother me if the Cops have faster cars than I have. They sometimes have emergencies to which they must respond.

That would be about as unnecessary as a parachute in a submarine.

I actually don’t drive a Ford or GM. But it’s very hard to ignore the years of spark plug issues, cam phaser problems and catastrophic Diesel engine failures on Ford trucks.

I used to get all butt hurt about brand loyalty years ago but now it’s just about the facts of the matter at hand.

Just messing with you. I have a Toyota Camry. Not big on brand loyalty, in fact I really don't care who makes it if it runs reliably. There are some who think their favorite brand hung the moon. I like Marlin lever actions, but my one example of the Winchester model 94 is a great gun. I have a Henry .22lr lever action. It is pretty slick and is more accurate than I am.

No problem, I was a die hard ford truck guy until I owned a new 1992 f150 for a few years. I would still own one from 1967-72. I enjoy a little brand ribbing at the mud runs and truck n tractor pulls :D I’d be the guy rooting for the International Harvester Scout or Big Block Chrysler power.
