Ford, because it was started by an entrepreneur who never gave up. After many unsuccessful tries he managed to hold on to his company that became wildly successful and later on bought his old companies as they matured. HECK even Clyde from Bonnie&Clyde wrote henry ford a letter thanking him for making the flathead V8 because of all of the successful escapes he had made from chevrolets!
Ford trucks cant be beat. The 4.9 liter straight 6 was a bulletproof motor and the bigger v8's werent too bad.
More recently, which automaker did not have to be bailed out? FORD! A company that takes care of its own problems and doesnt rely on taxpayers money is a winner to me every time!
