Here in Texas we get commercials for vehicles such as "Bigger in Texas, better in a Dodge" Or how about "Ford, Built Texas tough. " And a few others I'm sure.

The question.... is the vehicle commercials in your state oriented to your state or do you have to endure these same Texas oriented commercials?

The things you ponder! LOL

Never heard a texas commercial - or a Georgia commercial. I would imagine it's ONLY a texas thing. Texas is big on BEING BIG, and being tough. As the saying goes - everything in texas is bigger. They just use that to make their special commercials. Georgia doesn't have anything like that - anything special. People here grow peanuts and cotton....... the fact they grow peanuts in massive amounts doesn't make for anything useful in a commercial.

Although it could be useful in a gas relief commercial - it's just not a possitive thing. Smiley

I work for General Motors. You are correct - Texas gets special attention when it comes to selling trucks. Something like 1 out of every 4 Pickup trucks sold in America is sold in Texas. That's the major reason Toyota chose Texas as the location of its plant when it began building full-sized trucks. That's why Ford builds a special "King Ranch" edition of its trucks -targeted specifically for Texas buyers. Each year truck makers look at the Texas State Fair as a competition for having the biggest, glitziest truck display. No other State Fair or State gets the attention that Texas does!

Calm down Jerry, I don't think that's possible!! I think what they're saying is that some people choose to have a second vehicle that's not a pick-up. Though I can't see why!!:lol:  cheesy

I used to have a truck - a Ford. It was old, and the paint was peeling, but I loved the power that thing had. Now I drive an SUV (Ford Explorer), and it's really held up wonderfully, but it's just doesn't have the power or heaviness that I like to have in a vehicle. I also get to drive my father-in-law's Ford F-150 king cab (newer, and a beautiful dark green). I'm allowed to drive it anytime I want...... but I can't afford the gas for it to use everyday.

My favorite truck was a very old ford. I can't remember the year, but I looked over the internet, and it must have been made in the 1950-something. It was what I'd call a "fat" truck, light creamy green, with a wide front and bulging wheel wells. We got that truck for free (original engine), and after sitting for 2 years it started right up only needing a little brake fluid. That beast did anything and everything we asked it to. Smiley

Sadly though one of my worst vehicles was also a ford - a Bronco. It broke down all the time, and just never acted right.

Yep.... it finally died completely and sits in our junk hole at the edge of the woods. It's become a home for many wasps now. I bought it used, and in two years it needed a clutch, had electrical problems, 4-wheel drive wasn't dependable, the arm on the back window broke & soon after the window broke....... and now the head gasket is shot. I hated that bronco.
