We love our Ford, never again GM and Chrysler.

Screw you, Obama. May you suffer the fate of the Vega.

When will the UAW destroy Ford? It is only a matter of time and while I admire them for refusing to ask Uncle Sam for a handout I refuse to buy any UAW product.

They seem to be dealing with it. Just my opinion.

Hey, elk! Hope all is well. So nice to see you again.

Hubby picked up a very nice looking silver Explorer.

The F-150 is a great truck. :-)

Never been more proud to be a Ford owner. (I hope they can keep the UAW and congress at bay.)

I just went to edmunds.com to see what the new incentives for a 2010 Chevy Malibu were and starting today you get a $500.00 rebate if you belong to the National Community Action Foundation. What a crock! Now that Obama has control of GM, it's time to pay back all his community organizing lackeys with rebates at our expense. What the hell are they thinking in the White House?! That we won't notice?!

My Dad worked for a supplier to GM for 35 years, but I won’t look at GM anymore, nor will he.

Yes, it is.

This one is actually an off-road Shelby. Runs like a striped-a$$ ape.

They do appear to be dealing with the UAW so far but I am certain the UAW will strangle them eventually.

That is what the UAW does. They are a cancer to our nation.

I wish I was, but April Fools is a few months away. Just unbelievable. And it's a one year rebate...expires November 2010. Hopefully by then enough American will have awakened and sent the Rats a strong message, because they sure as hell don't pay any attention to us right now.

Not that I doubted you — I didn’t know if you’d see my question so I had gone to look it up myself. Next thing we know there’ll be a rebate for ACORN members.

Unfortunately, I bought the flame blue one without all the decals.

Still runs like a striped-a$$ ape, though.
