It's like Obama said about Sarah Palin (Completely undeserved - has the man EVER looked in a mirror?): "Lipstick on a PIG"! pig image

It may be a P.O.S., but at least it's a SHINY P.O.S.!

1995 Ford Taurus GL (P.O.S. Ford)

This was my first car. It was a hand-me-down, I was just about to get my license and my folks were looking to replace this car, so when the dealer wouldn't give my folks what they thought it was worth, they kept it and gave it to me instead. Oh Joy... Just what I always wanted - To show up at school with a Dorkmobile like this! At least it ran okay and the price was right - FREE!


It had an engine - sort of. 0-60 in about 15 seconds, and I probably could have timed the 1/4 mile with a calendar. Horsepower - I'm not sure if it had any at all! Torque - same thing. Top speed - I saw 75 once or twice, but it started shaking at about that speed.

It was a pretty red - that's about the best thing I can say about it! It had no guts at all. It handled like a pig. It got lousy gas mileage. The seats were uncomfortable. The radio SUCKED!

Factory Options

Looks only a mother could love - if she were half blind (Oh, that was standard for a Taurus wagon!) Power windows, locks and seat that actually worked some of the time.


I didn't bother...
