Best "FARMER" Super Bowl Commercial

Don't even get me started on new vehicles. Maybe if they didn't get $60k for one I could accept blown ball joints at 38k miles, brake issues & peeling body molding right off the showroom floor, & extensive frame rust after one winter ..... but I digress - I'm talking GM, although Fords seem to rust out faster than I ever thought possible ...and once you get through the thin paint on a Dodge they're no better. Buddy's '06 Ram needs $1,500 in steering components at 60k miles. Gauges were all frigged up at 40k ....... you can't win these days. If you had no problems, you got DAMN LUCKY, no matter what the brand.



Anyway, I commend Dodge for airing a commercial with the word "GOD" in it. I thought Obama had issued an executive order against saying that word in public, so my hats off to 'em. Well done, even if the Harvey estate sold out.

Looking at new trucks, Dodge is the hot ride right now, on paper anyway. Growing up in AG/Farming, Dodge was the kiss of death. GMs better, with Fords at the top of the heap. I'm driving Jeeps and Fords right now. 06 Ford Ranger and an 05 Ford
Freestyle. Ranger is bullet proof, Freestyle trouble free @ 115k. 05 and 06 Jeep Wranglers, 6 and 4 cylinder. They need more from time to time because of low quality parts, not engineering. Chrysler is/was notoriously cheap when it came to wear items. That is why
Ram trucks eat front ends, u-joints, etc. That Liberty recall.....those trailing arms were made by the lowest bidder..... with the cheapest metal they could procure... As Smitty pointed out, for the price they get, grease fittings are not an unreasonable expectation! The hype is that RAM ( Dodge) trucks have been gone through and " upgraded"....time will tell. I will say that the Dodge Ram
regular cab short bed is the best looking truck on the market right now. Sure is pretty.....don't know that I would gamble 30 k and
up on one though..... :notsure:

I always figured that people that are real interested in a short bed truck oughta just get a car. Kinda just a yuppie work truck to carry around the old lap-top & maybe a few bags of coal. :clap: toothy

That's what I noticed!

I do remember the original from when Paul Harvey first said it. I'm glad Dodge thought enough of it to pay for a replay.

Someone told me the new VW's have a 12 year rust warranty? That might be a major selling point in Maine. That liquid crap they're putting on the roads now makes mush of brake lines and frames in short order.

Yuppies get the crew cab to carry the family to whole foods.... I like the short bed regular cab, capable and you do not need an
airport to park or turn around. Space is tight here, so a natural. In the sticks I would go for long bed 1 ton dually :alone

Learn form a smart horse farmer. Ford '78 if I am not mistaken. NO emissions stuff, simple to repair and still going strong - yep I would be first in line if one of those was available. I even approve of a wooden deck on the back. EPA and Detroit killed that hope. Now THAT'S a truck.

The yuppies around here wouldn't be caught dead an anything American .... even if it's just the name. :lol:


My ol' man bought a brand new '77 F100 Custom back in the day. It's still a running joke that we watched the thing rust out in the driveway overnight. :lol:

By spring of '78, the cab mounts rotted right through, and the cab sat directly on the frame. The rear quarters blew out around the same time. I could stand on one side of the bed and look right through to the other side. ONE SEASON!! :shock:

No Smitty it is different in MA. You see there is a river of Psychomagnotheric Slime (also known as Mood Slime and Psycho-Reactive Slime) under the whole state. That river was featured in Ghostbusters but mistakenly thought to under NYC. It wrecks truck chassis.

I'm pretty sure that the slime you are refering to, also confuses alot of people in that state into believing in socialism, that somehow it will be different this time... :lol:
