  1. Well, she gets signed over to the new owner tomorrow morning.

  2. Well, spent the afternoon taking out all of my audio stuff out of the Taurus. It's all back to stock. If you're interested in the head unit and/or EATC kit, let me know. The Infinity speakers are already spoken for.

      My car sucks at fuel economy in the winter. But, I let her run for awhile on super cold days, let that old Essex come to life. And, I value heat :)

      I've never seen my low fuel light on my Taurus. But I have seen it in the Thunderbird! And that'll be the last time!

      It's rare that I see my low fuel light. I try to fill at 1/4. I've been getting ~270 miles before filling up.

      I drive as gentle as a lamb. Both my cars are senior citizens, gotta take it easy on them :P

      I drive with an appropriate level of aggression for the road conditions and volume of bad drivers.

      I hog the lane like I'm driving with the "Wide Load".

  10. Time to dabble in the stock market.

      I still regret not investing in AIG in 2009. Cost my self tens of thousands of dollars.

  11. Love me some of this.... http://tinyurl.com/k962cfc

      Yeah, that's a helluva car. :) I love driving the parent's '12 SEL any chance I get. So glad I talked them into getting it, and my mom said today that she doesn't even look at other cars cuz she loves hers so much lol.

  12. Ok so does anyone know if the mufflers from the 2005-2009 Mustang V6 and GT are the same? Trying to figure out how a Tec will sound with a Mustang muffler. Mark and I may have new additions to our cars...

      Gen 2 Taurus does quite well in snow herself :)

  17. I haven't even thought about starting christmas shopping yet. This time last year I was already finished.

    1. The White Falcon

      The White Falcon

      Bought my few items on Cyber Monday. Amazon got all my business this year, not that it was much.

    2. DuraBull

      DuraBull

      Yeah. I'm gonna do it all on Amazon last-minute probably. Thankful for Prime.

  18. She does well in the snow.

  19. I love my Mac.

      The White Falcon

      I personally am done with PC's. My next purchase of an everyday machine will be a Mac (probably a Mini due to cost).

  20. Fusion shopping over the winter.

      No the Taurus gets plenty of love but it might be time to trade up while it still has some value.

      That time was before it left the lot in 2004.

      mh488, the 6f35 transmission in the Fusion can be a problem, but the aisin is much more reliable!!

  21. So Amazon's next move is 30 minute delivery by drones. Developing.......

  23. Just finished up the brakes on my mom's 2010 Mazda 3. Stops on a dime. Overall a straightforward job. Caliper slide pins were BONE DRY.

    1. DuraBull

      DuraBull

      Did 4 or 5 hard stops from 35-40 to bed them in a bit.

    2. The White Falcon

      The White Falcon

      I still need to work my brakes a bit to get the adjusters set right. Still have too much pedal travel.

  24. So I'm fairly certain now that I get worse MPG with cruise control on.

      I get better without in the cougar since the cruise is messed up and constantly pulses the throttle...

    3. breeves002

      breeves002

      Well that would screw your gas milage for sure...

      I wish the '95's cruise worked. I miss it (had it in the van).
