Great Car

I was looking for a car a couple of years ago when my Jeep was on its last leg. I had always wanted a Crown Vic. So my dad said if I could find one under 15K it was mine. I ended up finding it at a Toyota dealer with under 16K miles on it, it’s white with a hole in the door where the spot light was. The funny thing is that it’s an LX model. I took it for a test drive and I really liked it. My dad asked me if I was sure that this is what I wanted. and I said yes it its. So we go back and start doing paper work and we somehow ended up getting it for 6K and got 4K for the Jeep, which we used for the trade. I was so happy that I got this car and I have loved it since the day I got it. Actually this year I was offered a brand new 2011 dodge Charger to lease with my dad so we had a fun car. But that meant I would have to give up the Crown Vic. I almost did but as I was cleaning out my things I called it off. I don’t regret it one bit. All of my friends said “How could you turn down a Charger for your Crown Vic, Its twice the car.” I just said “You don’t understand how much this car means to me.” They made fun of me for weeks about that. I just had too much fun with the car to let it go. I feel like I want to keep it forever. Even if it wont be a collector car. It will be my Collector car. I want to say that Ford is making a huge mistake about discontinuing this car. DON’T!!!!

Very simple: the Taurus SHO is behind  the Dodge Charger RT - - the regular, SRT8 and new Hellcat - - in performance.  Also, it falls well below the performance of the new Chev SS sedan with its great small block 8. You have not increased horsepower or torque since 2010, and it is on an outdated platform that is way too heavy. I'd like to see at least 410 horsepower and torque and a weight less than 2 tons to improve handling and acceleration. It also needs at least an 8 speed transmission. In addition the dash does not look like something one would see on a performance sedan; it is more like the dash one would see on an old Buick of the 70's. Of course rear wheel drive would be ideal, but I'm sure that will not happen. I currently drive a 2014 SHO and generally like the car, but it does need a stronger engine and lighter and more modern chassis. It could be a great performance sedan to compete with Dodge and Chev plus the emports; those of us who are older and need a 4 door sedan want an SHO that will compete with the best in addition to be a daily driver.
