sorry i just find the whole taurus thing very amusing.


seriously if you owned a last generation taurus, you probably don't want another taurus, or that one you rented and hated so much will lead you to a new taurus.


who knows, the first year of the Full size taurus might be good, but i think long term not so good, but when you are ford, who cares.


09 Fiesta

They are bringing the Fiesta back? Sweet hope it is built like the 1980/81 that I had in college. The only free car that I have ever driven/beat the hell out of. I put a battery in it. It was indestructible and I drove it from Kzoo to Detroit a half dozen times without a problem.

I think it was the fiesta that was pretty popular to build for racing at waterford hills as well - in part due to the cheap price of the used heaps, as well as parts cars.
