Super Happy Occupants: 1992 Ford Taurus SHO

Remember the time when only nutty people drove fast cars?  Most everybody else just picked something to get them from point A to point B, but a small group of nutters knew how to select cool options and get themselves into something that might spin off the road or burst into flames at point C.  Yeah, now every modern car is stupid fast and this next thing is slower than your neighbors new Camry...but at least its got a manual gearbox and a little bit of something called character.

 See a better way to relive the 90s?


  1. Somebody loved him. Look at that driver's seat bolster.

    Great sleeper and a good buy if its sorted.

  2. Still one of the coolest looking induction systems on a domestic smog era family sedan.

    1. Engineer: "We COULD send it down the middle but it's way cooler if we go around the outside. More tubes is better"

  3. I really can't believe what passes for 'detailing' anymore.

  4. Ugh that grey interior...ruins it.

  5. Had two 92s. One red with black interior and one Black with black. Fun car. Pain to work on, but a very fun car.
