A vehicle, usually ranging in the model years of 1972-1992 seen in trailer parks across america. Has a 350 motor with nothing else but a chrome aircleaner & glasspacks. Jack shit for rear passenger space. Lots of rust.
Owners' usually going through mid life crisis.
Go to your local trailer park if you don't believe me.
A sporty version of the grocery-getter taurus. Introduced in 1989, it had a high revving 220hp 3.0 DOHC V6 made by Yamaha and a 5 speed transmission. 1992 the body style changed. In 1993 a bored version of the 3.0, the 3.2 with slightly more touque was released. Coupled to an automatic transmission. In 1996, bodystyle changed to the bubble look and so did the motor. It was now a 235hp 3.4 V8. But only with an auto trans. The motor wasn't as snappy as with a manual tran and is plagued with camshaft/sprocket problems. In 1999 the SHO was dropped.
