One dollar? Honestly? Wow.

However.... My dad's old SHO..... Was much fun to ride in.


Yeah, her stepdaughter bought it & then she went rabid, trashed her old room & stole a bunch stuff, AFTER she begged
my sister to get custody of her from her own dad (real POS). So the local impound calls my sister & asked what to do
w/ HER Taurus. Seems the kid forgot she had it titled in my sister's name for insurance purposes & didn't trust her own
dad.

Aint Karma a bitch.

Most Tauruses & sables come w/ a base 3.0 that's just about right for them. The 3.8 is a bitch to work on because they
fit a little tight & almost any engine work is just easier to do if you pull the whole drivetrain (not as hard as it sounds) &
do it on the floor. However if you get creative, Mustang V6s (mid '90s to '04) are the same 3.8 & there's plenty of parts.
Supercharged Ford Taur'Stang SHO, FTW.

The SHO 3.6 uses heads designed by Yamaha Racing & they're little beasts. There was also a DOHC 3.0 but I think
Ford quit using them because of cam bearing issues, they were more interested in reliability.


My Mom's '00 Sable has the Vulcan V6 (SOHC, 150hp), not the Duratec (DOHC, 200hp)

Much more reliable.

I remember my dad saying it had Yamaha parts. He had an '89, I think. Awesome car, except that he was CONSTANTLY working on it, got a DUI in it, etc. etc.((cop said he smoked his rear tires, and was fish-tailing :rolleyes: ))

Just noticed a typo in my earlier post, the SHO had a 3.0, not 3.6. Sorry for the dyslexic hands.

A think the SHO parts were Ford, just designed by Yamaha Racing. Either way, they move.

Yeah, later on, the cop changed his story to "APPEARED to smoke his rear tires". Regardless, fish-tailing in a FWD? Does that happen often? I'm rather certain what you can do in a FWD isn't exactly "fish tailing".

Take a fast turn & goose the parking brake, yeah you can cut the rear end loose on a FWD.

Chevy pwnz. While Chevrolet hits the "green" (fuel-efficient, nature-friendly) car club, Ford still uses the rust bucket style of motoring (concerning the environment). Equinox pwnz the Expedition, F-150 and all other Ford SUV's.

Ford= God Gas Guzzler.

Not fish-tailing, though. Fish tailing actually requires the back tires to be going faster than the car.

Nothing. This is why it isn't in a GTA section. Why do people come in non-GTA sections and ask these questions?

Chevrolet for me. However I don't know much about cars so I'm going on purely the looks and my own experience.

Besides, how can you resist this?

Nice choice.

This one kind of breaks my heart, I've been watching the stocks & bought some Ford when all this "Bailout" stuff
started at $1.30 a share (dirt cheap). Today it's at $5.00 & climbing. When it started Ford wanted a line of credit
instead of cash, they had a cash reserve & they're moving ahead on a few things that should pull them through the
currant "crisis".

On the other side I bought some GM at $2.75 (WTF!?). It was an all time low & they were in trouble, but I remember
Chrysler being in the same spot when the '80s started & they came back. GM has 30 hybrid models & was about to
start production of the Chevy Volt, a hybrid that could go about 40 miles before the gas engine kicked in & designed
as a "plug-in" that could recharge of your house's outlets. Since then Obama fires CEO Rick Wagner (w/ GM for 5+
years, a long time for a Detroit CEO) under who's direction GM started building the clean economical cars THE US
GOVERNMENT WANTS US TO DRIVE!!! Latest word on the Volt is DOA because of the projected price of $30k.

Today GM lists at $1.60.

I want my Fords win, but not like this.

May as well say that I can't believe Obama is trying to make us a Socialist country, and your GM story proves it. Also I would like to say that I am VERY proud of Ford for being the only company that didn't ask for a bailout.

I consider the following on-topic as GM is the parent company of Chevy, any action affecting GM will in turn affect
Chevy.

Ford caught a huge break, they went into the bailout mess w/ an $8 billion cash reserve. They also had more luck
in their union headaches. I think they're going to make it between truck sales, fleet (only) sales of the Crown Vic &
the upcoming return of the Fiesta to the US. Flex-fuel & hybrids help.

News at GM just keeps getting better. They got some cash (I think $15 billion) but it came w/ a June 1st deadline
to restructure. Last word, they still had union problems. The US government now owns about half of GM. Besides
killing Pontiac, GM is giving up 43% of it's dealerships, shutting down 1/3 of it's factories & letting go of about 1/3 of
it's workforce. RUMOR has it the upcoming Volt (Chevy's new plug-in hybrid) is canceled. The Volt is Chevy's Prius
killer, designed to go 40 miles just on batteries before the gas engine kicks in. Currant hybrids go 1-2 miles.

http://www.chevrolet.com/electriccar/

I expect next year's Silverado to be a Smart Car w/ a kid's Radio Flyer screwed to the back of it. The Camaro will
have a WRX wing in place of the wagon. These will probably be assembled in China or India.

As of today, Ford is trading @ $5.40 a share, GM is $1.80.
