Default The Model A versus All Other Fords

Ford's official twitter is doing an NCAA style tournament bracket that pits a lot of their historically significant vehicles up against each other.

The Model A is up against the Ranchero in the first round and is currently up by 70 votes with less than 7 hours to go. The Model A was up by almost 120 votes yesterday but the Ranchero crowd came through and is narrowing the gap.

If you have twitter run over and vote real fast.

The whole bracket can be viewed here.

The 1932 Ford is being destroyed by the 66 GT40. Not a lot of legitimate votes in that face off.

What is a Ranchero? We didn't see them. That is a serious question and probably highlights the absurdity of the survey.

Yes, that image looks like a copy of the Australian Ute. What powered them, when were they made - Oh, the questions!!!

Best Ford of all time twitter competition is in its second round and the Model A is facing off against the 1962 Country Squire Wagon.

If you have twitter run over and vote!

This is fun and a neat idea.

Unfortunately I do not have Twitter so could not vote.

Personal experience. After having owned several antique Fords, the Model A has always been the last one to let me down. Since I started fooling with Model A's in 1971, I've never had to be flatbedded home with a Model A

Oh that and my '67 Galaxie 500 with a 390, that car wore like iron one of the best I ever owned. I never did anything to it. Never had to.
