I never would have bought a Furd anyway so it's mute point... but now that Castrol has pulled out of sponsoring JFR and have quit buying their oil and other products..
I know its mostly a small and mostly symbolic thing, but I personally feel that if they couldn't support the most popular and best entertainer in racing - they don't deserve my patronage.
I have hear others gripe and complain about Force because he had so much money and won everything - but he wasn't always so successful and scraped and clawed away until he did start winning and made the most of his opportunities, and for that I think everyone who loves drag racing and how successful it has become, owes just a little bit of respect to John.
In person he is a very calm and likeable guy and easy going to talk with as I have found whenever I managed to find him in a quiet time (usually at BIR where the atmosphere is admittedly pretty laid back) and more than that, there is no doubt he puts a lot of time and money (lots of it his own) into keeping his family together and sharing his dream with them..
Just my 2 cents for what it is worth..
