Ford v. Chevy
Growing up in Texas, there was nothing sexier than a guy with a big… TRUCK. Get your minds out of the gutter, TCD readers!
When a high school hottie’s 16th birthday came around and he rolled up to the school parking lot in a big, fully-loaded truck, girls heads definitely turned. I don’t know what it is about a guy in a big truck, but it definitely makes you want him to take you for a ride. So, for those of you men reading this deciding what truck to go out and buy now, Chevy or Ford?
This debate has been hot & heavy for years and every time there always seems to be a different winner. And we’ve heard all the acronyms from both sides…
I’ll make my case for both…
Living in Dallas, you might as well assume that the guy picking you up for a date is going to pull up in a Tahoe. If you live and/or work in Uptown Dallas, there is a 90% chance you have driven this car, in black of course, and I can’t say I’m complaining. There really isn’t anything better than a hot guy stepping out of a Tahoe… especially if he’s stepping out to open the door for you.
Now this is the alpha male vehicle. Any true Southern guy, you know the hunter, fisher, camping type, is going to be driving a fully-loaded Ford (preferably a King Ranch). I am all for this car, mainly because I presumptuously jump to the conclusion that the driver is a true-to-form Southern gentlemen.
But let’s be real here. If he shows up to pick us up in any jacked up truck older than 1980 we’re going to fall in love with the idea that it’s his grandfather’s truck he fixed up and that he must be a southern gentlemen who drinks lemonade on the porch while eating his mom’s homemade apple pie. Duh.
Overall, what’s the better choice? The Ford may win the truck pull, but this southern girl would rather be stepping into a Chevy Tahoe! But then again, you won’t see me hauling hay in there countryside anytime soon so you be the judge if that’s your case!
