while we still raced the oval track, we had a chevy car & engine, ford stick tranny & rear end, front right spindle was off a 3/4 ton dodge
my '56 chevy 1/2 ton had a chevelle front clip, 350 cu. in. chevy engine with a street/strip cam, 350 tranny, ford rear end. when that truck idled, the people in the next vehicle over would smile because of the exhaust & the vibrations they felt. the '99 chevy 1/2 ton was all stock except for the exhaust & got good mileage
while i still actually worked for a living the company bought fords & dodges back in the '70s, chevys & dodges in the '80s & '90s, now they just use chevys, less time in the their repair shop. thats a good thing when you have 130,000 employees, with maybe 1/3 of them driving company vehicles
