  1. Hi, I am here today because I was going to look through classifieds. I don’t think the problem is people aren’t tinkering or young people aren’t repairing. It’s not even social media. I remember in the infancy of the TCCA people were joining en masse because they couldn’t find resources for repair. Now there is a YouTube tutorial for nearly everything. If it doesn’t apply to the Taurus chances are there is one for a similar platform vehicle that will work. People joined and saw the community and realized that people were modding their Taurus and it was infectious. They got repair advice. The enjoyed the community. That sense of community is mostly gone now though. I used to post every day.. went through a dark period where I drove an escort. A couple years later got a 2012 Taurus. Stopped to check in. Not very many posts. Checked in less and less... to the point I’d see the same threads several days in a row with no posts. I don’t think you can fix it. Ads suck but with such low participation I don’t see how you have any other choice other than letting it slowly fade away. I guess I’d support ads if it meant the forum gets to live. You gotta remember when the whole ads thing reared it’s ugly head it was probably the lowest point in the TCCA’s existence... lots of strife, lots of animosity and lots of people worried about backroom deals and the owners profiting off them.
  2. The police did figure out who it belonged to... they haven't found him yet though:(
  3. So, long story short. Somebody was tracking my movements with a Garmin GTU-10 (gps tracking device) They emailed this photo to a friend of my car, from an anonymous account. In order to try and identify the person following this is my only recourse. Please assist.
  4. Well after a nearly five year absense from owning a Taurus I'm back in the drivers seat of one. I recently took ownership of a 2012 Ford Taurus SE. It's so nice to be back in a Taurus!!!
  5. The problem is typical with a high out put alternator. They usually do not generate all of their potential at idle. One thing you can check, is if you have the smallest pulley possible for the alternator. When I had my H.O built I wasn't even getting 13+V, but it turns out somebody at some point had installed an oversized pulley.
  6. Have you installed this yet? I saw the post over on TCCA, how did you make out?
  7. Up for discussion is and classed ad from my neck of the woods. I find this guys price a little steep. What do you think? He has two, and selling on the premise they are futur classics, not many built. http://chatham-kent.kijiji.ca/c-cars-vehicles-cars-trucks-1995-Ford-Taurus-SHO-Sedan-W0QQAdIdZ391405886
  8. My heart breaks. Exactly like my old 1990 Taurus which I miss dearly.
  9. Ninja Turtles to be honest... Only one too many of the original series... But then a whole bunch of newer b.s versions... I and II are the only ones worth watching!

    Not The Mama!

    I have a season of this on DVD! This show as awesome!
  11. Now THIS I have got to see!
  12. Unfortunately my local Police Department seems to be in love with Chargers. I don't think I will ever see one of the Interceptors on the road in my town unless it is the Provincial Police force. I did see a new Explorer Interceptor the other day. It was a sharp looking vehicle.
  13. Sorry, didn't mean to freak ya out... Just wasn't sure myself is all.
