    Default Kudos to Diamondpilot!

    In my few years of lurking and posting on this site I have become very impressed with Diamondpilot. His knowledge base is enormous, he seems to be the first to answer posts, he is direct, to the point and friendly, his answers have been very helpful to me and I think he must live on this site!! Thanks Chris! You are appreciated. Bill

    Thanks Bill. I do not live on this site but it seems as I do. Truth is I am a Corporate Pilot and only work about 12 days a month. In my off time I have taken up working on equipment, mainly boats and trailers but also everything from dozers to VW's.

    Think my smart phone. That is where I really live.

    Absolutely right. When I see that DP has responded to a thread I know it's always worth a look!

    And he's absolutely impartial when it comes to Fords versus whatever....
    My great-great uncle was Barney Riggs. Google him and read about him. He roamed around the southwest, mainly west Texas, Arizona territory and New Mexico territory. History books credit him with 9 - 12 men he killed. Family lore has the count at 18. They all deserved it, apparently.

    I used to work oil and gas and some ranching. Now I mainly hunt and fish. Hunting, fishing, quarter horses are my obsessions. Anything mechanical I like to tinker with.

    Hey, we all have our favorites. I go with facts and history. I have owned 4 GM's, 2 were junk. I have owned one Dodge and it was junk. I have owned about a dozen Fords and they were all great, same with the 1 Honda, 1 Toyota, and 1 Nissan.

    I currently have a 08 Nissan Titan, a 06 Ford F-350 with over 150,000 miles combined. Total out of pocket repairs other than brakes, tires, fluids, and wiper blades has been $40 for the Nissan. Bad axle seal. Not a single dime on the F-350 but it did have a dash cluster repaired under warranty at around 3 months old. I also have a BMW 335I and its so so. Its always in the shop it seems for stupid things like this week the head lights are glowing RED. Never seen that one before. Last month it was in the shop for a leaking WWF reservoir. Its on the chopping block soon, probably for another Ford. A Ford Edge Sport.

    Again, history of ownership. But really none of that matters to anyone but me. Ford is the only "American" car company I will touch. GM and Dodge with its Bailouts sealed the deal for me and most of the public.
