What do you say to haters?

Last week I was talking to a bunch of guy's at Performance Improvements. When I showed them a picture of my 03 F150 (Henry). One of them love the truck, but the other one said to me," Are you trying to make it look like a Dodge"?. I replied,"Do ya think it looks that bad"? That shut him up!
As Ford guy's, we all have had to deal with this type. How do you handle them.
Last summer, I was at Hanover Street show. There was a real nice 52 F1, they had planted a 396 Chev power plant in this beautiful truck. I'm a purest, (Ford in a Ford, Chev in a Chev, Elastic band in a Dodge, Ect). I was looking at this truck, when the owner said "watta ya think". I replied "It's amazing how big of a Chevy you need to do the job of a hundred HP flathead".

Ford must have something. There are allot of people that seem to hafta cut up the best.

Lets hear your response to these clowns.

i laugh in there face and say there was a reason ford was the only American car company not needed to be bailed out by the US government.

another one is. there is a reason ford is the number one selling truck in North America.

There is always going to be chev guys that love their chevys, dodge guys that love their dodges, the same as we love our FORDs.
I say I love buying the best things! and if you like second best that is your problem! Most people say they love my truck! I can't wait til next month when I bolt on $4000 worth of goodies, I will really turn heads

I just let the haters say their piece and keep my mouth shut. I know I drive the truck that has been the #1 selling truck for 35 years in a row. I get it a lot from a guy who "drives" a 06 Chevy 2500 Duramax that he tuned the sh*t out of, well his truck hasn't moved in 5 months because it eats transmissions (its in need of its third) like a fat kid does cheeseburgers.

Everyone hates mine until they need their sorry a$$ pulled out of a ditch or a boost or a tow. Then, I let them feel all embarrassed that they had to call me for help.

I was out at the " enroute " on the 401 and 3 teenagers where looking over my truck, The 1 said thats a really nice truck you have, I replied yup and it's not done, 1 of the other teenage boys says " it's a ford " so I looked him in the eye and said what you can't buy parts for your chevy to make it look this nice, the other 2 just laughed at him and walked away.

A friend of mine started hating on my truck one drunken night. He has a 06 duramax diesel, plow truck, and was telling me about how it had leather seats, this and that, the hp and torque specs etc etc . Basically he was telling me why his truck was so much better than my old 91 ford.
I laughed in his face and said, come talk to me when your truck sees it's 21rst birthday bc it'll never happen
