End of an era

Goodbye good friend, parting is such sweet sorrow. I will always treasure the 5 trips to the Tail of the Dragon with you



Hello new friend, looking forward to making some new memories

The technology question of the day is no longer the vapid, "Where do you want to go today?" But rather, "It's painfully clear where we're going; so, what color handbasket would you like to travel in?"

/me imagines the imagery.

Hey OP, the photos you're trying to embed must be set to private or such on your provider, because they aren't showing up for me.

2013 Taurus SHO. 3.5 V6 Twin Turbo, AWD. I assumed that you all would have looked a little closer to the pic. I'm disappointed at some of your comments. Yes, she is bigger and heavier than the IS, but still a blast to drive. I remember in the past when valued members of our community traded in their IS's on something OTHER than an IS and they were all resoundingly congratulated. Like when BGWilly (Jeff) sold his heavily modified, TurboEast prepared '05 IS for a Lotus Exige, or when Brett sold his SRT Turbo IS for a Honda S2000.

The technology question of the day is no longer the vapid, "Where do you want to go today?" But rather, "It's painfully clear where we're going; so, what color handbasket would you like to travel in?"

Well, I don't blame them. I saw the SHO, but I was definitely not expecting a Ford, let alone a Taurus! But, after some research I came around. It does look nice, I hope you enjoy it! More pictures, perhaps? Interior and under hood?
