No, that's real. ;O)
If it were real, Chevrolet would have a capital "C".
Well, English wasn't Henry's best subject.
I don't capitalize chevrolet. Maybe Henry didn't either.
Henry was dead for 8 years before Chevy had an engine worth putting in a hotrod.
What about the 1914 V8?
Waaay too cool!
If Henry was alive today - he'd roll over in his grave !
Yes, Henry was deceased by then, but he sure wasn't going to take that lying down.
If he did indeed say it (I'm skeptical) who would he have said it to, when, and over what?
That's a keeper! Copy and put on wall of garage!!
Jerry, The 1914 V-8 was Cadillac. Chevrolet's first Model D V-8 was 1917-18.
that could be a FALSE INTERNET QUOTE ...how would we tell? WAIT , i know we could look it up on the internet ! maybe we could site another internet site as our proof of falsehood ! HMMM ? ...well i guess i wasn't thinking ...i have just questioned the truthfulness of the internet and then used it to support my own argument ...i think i will just have to rely on my own flawed judgement ...Always an OPTIMIST...Gene French
"The Russians did it...."
But I saw it on the internet!!!@#$%^&*()_+
Cracked Heads Every Valve Rattles Oil Leaks Every Time.
And don't give me that lame "Found On Road Dead" routine. The correct reading is First On Race Day.
I think he meant to Chebby, Steve if you don't want that sign you can send it to me!
And Peter, What do you do with an old Chevrolet? Shove it in the alley and let it lay.
Keep your Ford ALL Ford.
I don't think Henry minded when a T race car with a Frontenac head manufactured by the Arthur and Lewis ran in the Indy 500.
I'm going to have to agree with Rich, not only would he be rolling over in his grave he'd probably be kicking and trying to dig his way out. That is if he were alive today. I believe I would too. Wouldn't you?
Is it an actual quote? Probably not. Is it a rule I wish hot rodders paid more attention to? You're damn right it is.
Nothing drives me crazy more than to be at a car show and run across a very well-done Ford from the 30's with a tree-fitty tre-fitty combo shoehorned into the engine bay. It's like they can't come up with anything period correct, or even brand matching, so they went to Summit Racing's website and bought a chrome-and-red hot rod in a box.
Ok, one thing drives me crazier. Seeing "Corvette" on the valve covers of anything not a Corvette. IT DOESN'T MAKE YOU FASTER!
My friend's friend is coming to visit from Oregon. My friend told me that his friend used to have a Model T and they used to drive around Dallas in it back in high school (1960s) and girls loved it. So I asked more about it and he told me it had a 350 or 327 or something. I told him that's not a a Model T, and he insinuated girls wouldn't want to go in a stock T. I beg to differ.
The lettering on that sign closely resembles something called a typewriter, Which was widely used in the 1920's...I rate the authenticity of this sign,...Mostly true.
“I’ll give it an 85, it’s got a good beat and you can dance to it.”
I posted it to the Abraham Lincoln page on Facebook and got an immediate response that it was true and as you know, Abe never lied.
I didn't realize that Abraham Lincoln and Henry Ford ever met. Probably not much of a meeting since HF would have been less than 2 years old.
I think Steve is on to something here. How about a new thread of things we don't know if Henry ever said, but would have/should have?
Henry Ford II made a similar comment when Lee Iacocca was considering a deal to buy a small engine from Honda for a fuel efficient car project.
“No car with my name on the hood is going to have a Jap engine inside!”
1917, right you are! My mistake, thanks much!
This is just evidence that I don't dabble in off brands. ;O)
