  1. He put a legit Buick grille on it.
  2. "Why the hell did he do this to a Taurus?"
  3. This all makes me feel even more concerned about ever having to get new windshield glass on either car. I don't want someone fucking up my dashboard or any wiring in the headliner or A-pillars on the wagon, and it turns out that nobody even makes new replacement windshields anymore for Fox body Mustang convertibles (the hatchbacks and coupes use a different, taller piece of glass that is still available).
  4. I can't make it this year. Planning tentatively to come in 2018 with the Mustang.
  5. 3.5L V6, not turbocharged.
  6. Yep. The Sable sold yesterday.
  7. A Matador Red Taurus SEL with floor shift, sunroof and even a power passenger seat. http://www.autonationhyundaiohare.com/used/Ford/2002-Ford-Taurus-211b31090a0e09901c878c6f4b27e6f0.htm And a low mileage Sable LS... with rare black leather interior. http://www.autonationhyundaiohare.com/used/Mercury/2004-Mercury-Sable-2b62765c0a0d0cc72311eac1e3d92604.htm
  8. Those two new Motorcraft COPs definitely took care of the problem. Getting access to them on the rear bank was a colossal PITA. Maybe Vulcans do have one or two advantages over Duratecs...
  9. Especially with that shifting adjustment Gary did.
  10. They ARE misfiring, cylinders #1 and #2.
  11. It's time to change out the spark plugs and COP modules on my Sable.
  12. I just looked at your updated signature... I think it's possible you have too many cars, Kevin.
  13. I'd imagine they are about the same in "city" driving, but the Mitsubishi is worse on the highway. Of course knowing the way you drive, the Buick is getting much better fuel mileage since you're currently babying that car...
  14. 4Runner = Santa Fe Sport made me LMAO.
