    So my girlfriend has this '89 Taurus. It's an absolute PILE. The thing looks and drives like it's been beat on since it rolled off the lot. It's a friggin 3.0 pushrod V6 that puts out about as much power as a hamster on a wheel.

    "Well, Battle Pope? What's your point?"

    It finally took a shit. I'm so happy to see this car die. It's been nothing but a wretched pile of contempt and shittiness. It was tragically unreliable, it burned oil, and it ate alternators like a sumbiatch.

    She got it for $225 from a former friend (I say former because she was a stupid bitch. Mormon + Republican = moved to Utah...err...PolygamousCultLand).

    She's going to go look at a Moonvan this weekend. :ph34r:

    P.S. I know, who gives a fuck. I'm just ranting dammit.

    EDIT: God dammit this is in the wrong forum. I was in the multimedia section and thought it was the Other Vehicles section. :( I'll get some pics of the moonvan up of she gets it though.

    I am sorry battlepope but I am going to have to politely disagree. I had a 95 ford taurus with a 3.0 and it did alright. And I beat on it good :). When I sold it with 255K miles on it almost everthing work great (hehe I got 800 for that thing). The only issue was that the tranny had a small problem where it would spin the tires from shifting form 1 - 2. Now you are all saying wheres the problem that cool for an auto to spin them, but my mechanic said it was a bad thing.

    lol
    i've had my share of disaggrements with tauruses

    the auto trannies blow more than a 50 cent crack whore, and the head gaskets pop more often than a catholic school girl...

    fucking junk...

    and a 5.0? thats just insanity
    just do a SHO swap
    lol

    maybe. but the SHO has tons of aftermarket as well. You'd have to do extra work to convert it to a fwd application.
