About “The Woody Wagon”

This is the car I drive now. It was my moms old car, which was given to me to use after I wrecked my El Camino. I also learned to drive with this car. It has a 3.0 V6 and it is fairly quick. (I can beat my buddies V6 Grand Prix GT LOL!) It handles very well due to the fact it has independent suspension all the way around. It has a LOT of cargo room, especially with the second row seats folded down. It also has a rearward 3 seat too! It's a neat car to have and it's very useful.

About “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!

 

Specs for “The Woody Wagon”

(Vulcan) 3.0 V6 Horsepower: 140 @ 4800 RPM
Torque: 160 lb.-ft @ 3000 RPM

Specs for “P.O.S. Ford”

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 for “The Woody Wagon”

Woodgrain vinyl, tachometer, power seats, power locks, cruise and other power accessories.

Factory Options for “P.O.S. Ford”

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.

 

Mods for “The Woody Wagon”

Performance stickers! LOL! Painted valve cover and some underhood art.
