When I was in high school, my friends and I had the Ford vs. Chevy debate. Back and forth we would go and the battle was never ending.
I can’t remember comparing anything remotely specific about the F-150 and Silverado and why one was supposedly better than the other.
The typical conversation was:
“Ford stands for Found On Road Dead, did you know that?”
“Well only little boys wear bow ties.”
“Want a ride home from school? I have a Chevy and I know your Ford won’t start.”
“Sorry, I was asking the prom queen what time I should pick her up in my Ford – what did you say?”
On and on it went.
And then there were the Dodge guys . . .
If only I would have thought to use this commercial in my high school debates. Flashback to the all-new 1997 Ford F-150, jumping over 19 of its older brothers and sisters.
The significance of 19?
Ford F-150 was the best selling truck for 19 straight years at the time.
I always think of good come backs after the fact . . . like nearly 20 years after the fact . . .
