It’s no secret that students here at Serrano take their cars very seriously. The battle between Ford and Chevy enthusiasts has been ongoing since who knows when. What is obvious however, is how serious they take their commitments to their cars and trucks. These fanatics will go to the extreme to express their approval or disapproval of both brands. Acronyms are the biggest tactic. Ford lovers often say it stands for “First on Race Day.” Chevyists respute by saying “For Only Retarded Drivers” or “Found On Road Dead.” Chevy opposers, however, go around saying “Cheapest Heap Ever envisioned Yet.” This goes on and on, “Found Or Repaired Daily,” “Can Hear Every Valve,” “Fatally Obese Redneck Driver”… Some might say the only way to improve the appearance of a Chevy is by parking it between two Fords. Senior Ryan Acuna agrees by saying, “Ford is an American favorite, but Chevy is a nice off brand.” Junior Bryce Nelson said, “Ford looks the best lifted and runs forever.” Then there are those who debate between Chevy cars and trucks and Ford cars and trucks. Just to be different, Kyle Ilchi explained, “I prefer Ford trucks and Chevy cars. Just how I grew up.” Everyone has to have their opinion. There is obviously a huge difference between Chevy cars, Ford cars, Chevy trucks, and Ford trucks. On the other hand, the reason there are sidewalks next to roads and highways is so Ford drivers have a way to walk home. Chevy truck owner David McNeally stated, “My Chevy gets me where I’m going.” Senior Robbie Newbold made it a point to say, “I find them to be more reliable and better built than Fords,” proving just how polarized this debate is. Since the days of the Model T and the Royal Mail Roadster, this rivalry has been ongoing, and it will probably never end.
