L.o.L...a. the very reason this "Ford" even exists is because of the "feud" between Ford and Ferrari.

Henry was oh-so-close to buying out Enzo's company, but when Ferrari backed out of the deal at the last minute, Ford, with a bit of outsourcing, put a Ferrari-killer on the circuit.

from the looks of that f150 vs 458 youtube both the drivers are stupid. the ferrari should have gone right to avoid the truck but it looks like he went to the left which put him directly in the path of the truck.

derp.

Brandon, Fl, that wreck probably happened within 5-15 minutes drive from where i live

i wouldn't be surprised if the truck didn't see the car while pulling out, and the car was going too fast

Ford, prolly not so much
Ferrari, i dunno, Ford causing Ferrari to start a losing streak at LeMans that they still haven't overcome is pretty substantial
and you look at those in charge of Ferrari and the majority likely worked under Enzo Ferrari, there might be some bad blood still, although more of a "meh, i don't like those Ford guys"

In order for Ford to keep the F150 trademark, doesn't it have to make efforts to protect the trademark? Otherwise they lose it, right? So it's possible Ford is just doing it to protect the name now and in the future, because if they don't fight this now they may lose a future infringement case.

I suck at explaining this.

I didn't think any of that was still on since I cant recall any examples of fierce rivalry in the last decade or 2. Did they ever race each other in the post-GT40 era?

Easy to say. Really there's a little more going on - the truck can hit his brakes, or hit the gas. If he hits the brakes, swerving right isn't going to help. I've ben in this situation more times than I care for, you never know what the blind mother fucker is going to do next. Some stomp the brakes and stop right in the middle of your lane, some stomp the gas and try to "beat you"

Also I bet the truck got stuck Otherwise he'd have pulled off of it to save some face.

this is a good point
a couple years back Ford went sue-happy and tried to get every forum and club that wasn't an official Ford club that used the word "Mustang" or "Ford" to stop using it
it's why Fordsix.com went to ClassicInlines.com (well, part of the reason)

Yea i remember that. That is sooo dumb. They are coming after their own car buyers

edit: maybe it's to make it harder to find Ford/Mustang forums on google, so people couldn't quickly scan them for problems before buying one

For a guy who thinks BMW shits fairy dust, this is a particularly ironic statement.
