    I too am a Ford fan but have to point out that the CEO of GM also offered to ramp up and re-tool shuttered GM plants to have them start churning out needed medical supplies. Based on what this country was able to pull off after entering WWII, I'm sure that with todays technology and materials, the only thing standing in our way is needless regulations and politics.

    2000 Excursion v10. Pulled my 7000 lb enclosed trailer up the grapevine in 2nd gear near redline the whole way. If I had a diesel could've done it in 3rd gear and much better than 8mpg.

    I had a brand new F250 7.3 and it was awesome until I got the brand new 6.0. The 6.0 enjoyment was short lived though and taken back under lemon law.

    Bought a used '05 V10 and it's been reliable with maintenance. It only has 118k miles and it now only gets driving around the block every 4-6 weeks. Although it is rarely used, I don't want to get rid of it because it comes in handy to haul junk or materials without concern for scratches, dents, etc.

    If I needed one today, I wouldn't hesitate given the deals available right now.

    How in the world did we go from an article about Ford stepping up and assisting with the COVID-19 epidemic to instantly bagging on them as a vehicle manufacturer?

    Go ride your FN bikes you bunch of grumpy old fartses! <- That’s farts double plural...;):p

    Knowing the virus can live in the air for up to 3 hours, I’m not riding, hiking, walking, etc. outside my property. :bang::confused:
