I believe in certain cases two wrongs can make a right but this isn't one of those scenarios. If he really wanted to feel better about the awkwardly painful memories of his past, maybe he should have simply done the right thing and put a Ford in a Ford - How 'bout that concept. The way I see it, that's something more Ford owners should be doing and be 100% proud of. In all honesty I'd be embarrassed to pop the hood of a Ford or Chevy that had the other's engine. Sure, we've all got our favorites yet anybody who has built an engine or can read should be able to understand that either brand can be built to more than satisfy a gear-head's craving for acceleration. As a relatively unbiased car-fella who appreciates many Ford, Chevy & Mopar products, I view this historical tendency to cross-breed as more of a Ford disloyalty/defector/corner-cutting problem than a valid excuse to get rev'd up toward hating on Chevy. Cause believe me, the common Chevy guy also think it's weird when Ford owners birth an engine with the distributor in the back.
