My Green Little Boat Of A Car. — Well I've been driving around my little beauty for about 2 years now, and it drives great but as we all know '93/'94 (and even years younger or older) have the WORST reputation for tranny's...well mine was just replaced by my father dearest about March 2007. Still drives great, good mileage city fabulous highway! Great little boat on wheels. Well in my opinion that car is as big of a boat like Titanic! :] What I really REALLY hate about my car is #1) No A/C #2) Crap leather interior!! Otherwise...Fabulous. Needs a new paint job though. Last time I checked (which was 30 minutes ago) there was just over 204,786 miles...and it's still going strong!

Pros: Good little boat of a beginners car.

Cons: Leather Interior, Bad rep tranny, needs a paint job, no A/C.

Did Its Job — this car cost me 300 bucks. i bought it with 191k miles and it crapped out on me around 193.5k. this car did its job which was to get me around for a few months as cheep as possible so i could save up some money for a new sweet ride. i wouldnt recomend getting it, but it did last almost 200k miles so i guess if you were to find one with lower mileage it wouldnt be a bad deal.

Pros: cost me 300 bucks

Cons: low displacement 6cyl, automatic

Fun In The Form Of A Ford — Fastest, most fun car I've owned to date. With just under 300 hp it's one of the fastest SHO's in the US. Problem is it had a stage three 30k clutch with 37k on it. Sucks that it blew and waiting on the new one but you'll all hear it before you see it when it's up and running.

Pros: Moves quick, stops quick, smooth ride, nice sound, custom interior, nasty car. looks like a gramma car

Cons: Minor body rot, crappy material to use for the body of such an amazing car, looks like a gramma car

Big Enough To Haul Boat And Lumber, Etc. With Decent Gas Mileage; Comfy — Has 168k, but lots of repairs- new tranny, radiator, muffler twice, front suspension, water pump, brakes, plus many minor issues. But it's size is great, has decent performance, and looks good yet even after several winters of ice, snow, salt, etc.

Good Car For Being A Ford — It was a good car, but if you don't maintain it, it will blow up just like any other Ford.

Pros: Clean interior, exterior looks good, great handling

Cons: Could use some more power, bigger sway bars

The 143 Mph Family Sedan Of The Early 90's, For Under 25 Grand. — Ford took an otherwise boring run of the mill Taurus and decided to drop in the 3.0L Yamaha built V6 that they had contracted Yamaha to built. They mated it to a Mazda built 5 speed transaxle (more 93-95 cars however had a Ford automatic) which provided positive, solid shifts, although not nearly as smooth as a Honda or BMW. A huge amount of work was done to the suspension tuning, making it stiffer, adding bigger anti-roll bars, and doing everything possible to dial back torque steer. Along with the minor exterior changes, front facia, rear bumper, small trunk mounted spoiler, alittle body clading and 16" wheels (up from the base Taurus's 15's) the interior was upgraded with leather seating and sunroofs on some cars, a standard auto climate control, and an optional JBL audio system. The car tracks straight on the highway, and can hold its own on back roads, as long as maintenance is is kept up on the suspension. Steering feel is good and torque steer is very controllable, only showing itself in first gear on bumpy or wet roads. For most of the earlier SHO's brakes were a weak point. They were just alittle unndersized, never lacking in stopping power, but if subjected to alot of highspeed braking, or track use were easily warped after a few 5 or 10 thousand miles. The 220hp Yamaha however is a unique engine that makes you crave flooring it to listen and feel the secondary intake runners open above 4k rpm. Its raw power delivery is unlike any family sedan of today and you'll surprise many people when they look under the hood. This was one of Ford's best cars of the early 90's, when they were thriving and not afraid to try something alittle different.

Pros: Unique Yamaha and manual transmission are addicting, making every drive fun.   It's a sleeper, much more so when it was new than now.  Understated but sporty styling, Comfortable, roomy, and more amenities than the typical family sedan of the early 90's.  Good handling and the sound and pull of the Yamaha, again.

Cons: Somewhat weak brakes.  Maintenance must be done to keep it running well, which is not always easy, and it is American which unfortunately means not always the best build quality and part longevity.

Loved It, Miss It — This car was a blast! With a 3.0 Liter V6 designed by Yamaha and a matching 5 speed transaxle, this car really had some go for a luxury sedan.

Pros: Tons of fun, Great Speed Stability

Cons: Pricy to work on, Not Road Course Worthy

Four Door Grocery Getter Designed To Avoid The Police While Kicking Butt Against The Import Crowd. — The SHO combined all the luxuries available at the time with far above average power and handling performance. A joy to drive and a reliable ride. I've had mine since 1997 and the odometer currently sits around 270,000 KM

Pros: Surprising kids in their little foreign cars and kicking their butts.   LOL

Cons: Hard to find second hand parts for this rare machine.
