Thub's 2002 SE-Time to say goodbye

Recommended Posts

That's right one of the long time classic Gen 4 cars on this website is going to be sold. I've never really had a project log for this car so I figure I will do a little "goodbye tour/show and tell" as I say goodbye to the car. I'll post some old pictures and whatnot and a few pictures of it currently this weekend.

We bought the 02 Taurus in 2008 when I was 16, it was my first car and always will be. As a family we have put about 70,000 miles on the car since we got it. It has always been there for us and never let us down (except for the blown heater hose and bad starter). Its the car that got me interested in vehicles and working on them and I'll always remember it for that. There are a lot of good memories and experiences with that car. 

Over the past 2 years it had become more of the family car, being shared between myself, my sister, and my mom. I would keep the car but seeing that my sister finally got a car of her own (2014 Mazda CX 5 AWD) there is just no reason to have 3 vehicles for one person.

Some people just see it as a car, an appliance and nothing more but I think most of the people here understand that its a little tough to say goodbye to any vehicle they have owned, especially their first car. I just hope it can be a great vehicle for whoever decides to buy it.

 

Here's a picture of it in Spring 2015 sporting the Centennial rims, it sure looked sharp.

Yah your right Eric, if only I had more space, time, and money.

I had to beg a little but I finally got someone to take a picture of me with the two cars. For 15 years living in Wisconsin the whole time the Taurus still looks great too.

Fun fact, I have 2 Thunderbirds, a Taurus wagon, A Roadmaster Wagon, an Endeavor, and a V92C Motorcycle. And technically, the title of my wife's car is in my name, so I have 7 vehicles total. Take it from me, you can never have too much ;)
