Well I liked the Taurus(mainly because of NASCAR and the SHO model), but why the heck is this in Asian Imports? If you want to bash Honda, make the topic I HATE HONDA not does anyone love the Taurus. :evil:

BTW he didn't introduce himself. Shouldn't 99integra be flaming him? it's like tradition :laughing:

Oh look what we have here...another piss brained jackass. The only reason he likes Tauruses so much is cause that's probably what his mommy drives him to day care with.

posted by  hondaman

no she prolly drives him in a civic or accord

I used to have a Taurus, got it for $75.00, it was my first car, it was nice, but it was still a piece of shit. Wouldn't spend more than $75.00 on it.

Care to explain that little comment? Or shall I assume it just came from the vacuum of your brain?

posted by  hondaman

I don't think he was harpooning the Honda, just the little guy's dislike for them because his mum drives one.

posted by  Wally

Seems like C4 is back. Maybe Solar, maybe some other idiot trying to look funny. This is really starting to get annoying. We should like...have people send in copies of their birth certificate to verify they're 16 or something. :mrgreen:

Driving in a Honda period is a privilage. One that you will never experience b/c your prob some 13 year old who is just learning about cars. Please post a pic of your wonderful car. I have a Accord and i can afford a camera. But your apparently rich and can't afford a simple camera? Wow dude please come up with a better story than that one. Why do so many people lie about their cars? Its not like we care if you drive some pos. We just hate Taurus's :fu:

posted by  GonnaDie4TheGov

I will assume so...his history made me a bit jumpy on that though. :wink2:

posted by  hondaman

I like Ford Tauruses. Especially the V8 and SHO models. Very reliable cars. But sad to say, this guy gives them a bad name :evil:

posted by  SlipKnoT

i agree with that much of what you said, lol.

the taurus is ugly in my opinion, also, it's got really bad aerodynamics, same as the ford falcon au.

personally, if i had the choice of a Spoon Civic Type-R over a V8 Taurus, i'd just at the Spoon, for sure.

posted by  HyundaGuy

Yes, I'm sure I've told you that before lol....and It's pronounced Taurus'...Or maybe it was somebody else I explained it to :ohcrap: lol

Oh, and I'll move this.....for now...atleast this way most others in the section of CF will share this idiots tastes :ohcrap:

Accord>Taurus
and
Civic>Escort

(PERIOD).

posted by  elchango36

yeah i also had one as my first car it was a 94 got it for like 1200bux tranny and oil leak and about a month and a half later the tranny went in it

posted by  mx3_monster

But the MK1 and 2 Escorts were RWD and are rally beasts. Also the Escort Cosworth was a gem.

posted by  fudge

And If I had the choice between a Ford RS200 and a Spoon Civic Type R, I'd take the Ford, for sure.

WTF? What a random comparison...

posted by  ChrisV

Those pics definately dont HELP your side of the case.

I hate Tauri, mainly because I was in one in Alaska and the gas pedal stuck to the ground, and we couldnt stop. Turns out that many from that year had that same problem. Scared the shit out of me. It would be one thing if it was a fast car, but flooring it in a Taurus puts you at like 50 mph max. He he... :laughing:

posted by  StiMan

Well, that's not exactly true, either. And have you ever driven a SHO in good shape? There's a reason they have a following.

Hell, even the flex fuel '04 Tauruses we have here as fleet vehicles are relatively fast and comfortable...

posted by  ChrisV

Or how about putting the Spoon engine into the RS chassis? 12500rpm must be hell loud!!

posted by  fudge

I wouldnt say driving a Honda is a privelage, giving that theyre cheap, slow, and just econoboxes.

I wouldnt take anything ChrisV says for more than a grain of salt, hes been dodging the Ford Probe thread in my signature since I proved him wrong. He cant take it.

posted by  Oomba

And I won't take anything you say for any value either, because statments like that show you don't know a damn thing. :thumbs:

posted by  hondaman

Yep that Accord of yours was sure built for power, huh?

posted by  Oomba

And I'm sure that Blazer you own is the height of automotive excitement. :thumbs:

posted by  hondaman

well i'd have to agree on the honda thing, but youve made a very critical error in saying so many good things about the ford taurus. obviously youve completely forgotten about the mid 90's chrysler concorde. i mean its not only a near luxury ride, but if u throw in a carseat and lots of jusk along with the excellent infinity stereo system, youve got a pimp ride, honestly. anyone who agrees with me, help me take down the taurus. CONCORDE FOREVER!!!!!

posted by  DP DOGG

Any reason you don't like Hondas? Or like most people on here do you just post before you think?

posted by  hondaman

Wait, looking at your quote, is oombah challengine me somewhere? I have him on ignore since the weekend. Arguing with him has become pointless as he is incabable of learning anything since in his short life he learned everything he needed to know by the time he was 5.

posted by  ChrisV

ya i dont like hondas because they arent made in america. BUY AMERICAN!!!!!

posted by  DP DOGG

Now that's just silly. Most modern Hondas sold today are in fact, made in America, with primarily American sourced parts, American labor, and the bulk of the dollars from the sale of said Honda goes directly into the American economy.

Profits? Sent back into R&D and in opening new facilities in the US. Maybe SOME profits go into the pockets of Japanese executives, but that sort of money wouldn't go into the American economy even on the domestic car side. Why worry about the American executive's Villa in Switzerland more than the Japanese executive's condo in Hawaii?

posted by  ChrisV

hey man thanks for settin the record straight i knew sum of that but not all of it. but im just a guy who prolly always drive american cars, but just my preference. anyhow thanks for the info man!!

posted by  DP DOGG

the only good taurus is the SHO model, i believe Yamaha made that motor and which i believe is not a domestic corperation lol. even if it is a SHO the name taurus kills the coolness of the car lol :orglaugh:

posted by  Mx3Kid

OK I don't really know anything about it, but I would bet that Ford made an engine to put in thier own car. I guess if Ford owns Yamaha that might be possible, but I don't think they do. In fact I'm pretty sure they don't.

posted by  jedimario

Ford had Yamaha do the development work on the SHO engine, and Yamaha actually did the assembly work. It was originally developed for a Ford/Yamaha joint venture sports car that was cancelled.

posted by  ChrisV

why did you move this thread to the domestic section. Now instead of just pissing off the import guys he gets to piss off these guys too. just lock this stupid thread or delete it. it wasn't started as a statemnt to a taurus but just to start crap

posted by  airmanUSN

I Agree... its just like Solar's 'Why do people drive Hondas' thread.

posted by  elchango36

Dude is there anything you don't know about cars?

posted by  jedimario

I believe that Yamaha helped designed the Zetec engine.

posted by  fudge

I learn new stuff every day. There is no way anyone can know everything. There are hundreds of older car companies I'm still learning about, and then there's all the keeping up on new stuff.

Funny thing is how many people think I think I know it all, when that couldn't be further from the truth. I just make sure that what I do know, is solidly supported by evidence.

posted by  ChrisV

Well it seems you have an answer to almost every question on this forum. I hope I know as much as you someday. :thumbs:

posted by  jedimario

The differences between a base Probe and a GT, for one.

posted by  Oomba

That is true. I have respect for the SHO Taurus. Those are pretty good cars. (I havent driven one in real life, but in Gran Turismo 4 I bought one, great car. Also, I believe that you in fact lectured me on that car before. :thumbs: )

posted by  StiMan

:banghead:

Most retarded statement ive ever heard

Cars dont break down in GT4, they dont have any of the problems a real life car would. Did the game let you feel how comfortable the ride was? How about how the interior looked? How about the real life colors?

posted by  Oomba

No, the discussion was between calling a car an "utter pile of shit" vs merely a lesser performing version of the same car."

Dumbass. But see that's the problem it's black or white to you and a few others: "if it isn't perfect, it's utter crap." THAT'S what the conversation was about. And you would have understood that if you weren't such a f*cking moron.

Get a clue, idiot.

posted by  ChrisV

That's only becaeu you haven't actually listened to yourself.

You've made way more retarded statements that that.

Moron.

posted by  ChrisV

honestly? I would take a Taurus SHO over an Accord any day. but only the newer SHO, with the V8. My dad had an older SHO and he had lots of problems with the transmission - he calls it a beautiful engine mated to a crappy transmission. :banghead:

posted by  SuperJew

Comfort of the ride: suspension or interior seating comfort (Yes on suspension)
Interior: not in the game, and I dont give a shit
Real Colors: the game uses real colors from the cars

I know it isnt the same as a real life drive etc, but I was simply stating that of all the Tauri, the SHOs are the better of the breed.

posted by  StiMan

I think the US Escort is alot different to the Euro specced one

Also....I may be wrong so dont quote me on this lol....but I think that the Zetec is unheard of in the States and Aus :thumbs:

posted by  Cliffy

Sorry to dissappoint but..... I have given up on these dicks, unless I want to :wink2:

posted by  99integra

You would be wrong

posted by  Wally

LOL...Thanx for that, Wally...are you refering to all of my post or just the last bit about the Zetec? :thumbs:

posted by  Cliffy

Zetec.

I don't know if the US got the Escorts that we know e.g. RS2000, etc.

Did the US get the legendary Cosworth Sierras ?

posted by  Wally

We get the Zetec engine series in the Focus, but we never got the Euro Escorts (or ANY of the older RWD Escorts...), including the Escort Cosworth (except through private importers, like Sun INternational). That's the only way we got any Cosworth Sierras, to. the only Sierra we got was the turbo 2.3 liter SOHC XR4Ti, sold under the less than successful Merkur brand.

posted by  ChrisV

Didn't you guys get a V8 engined Sierra or some sort...I know there's a few out there....but wasn't sure if they were kits you could buy...ie; the V8 RWD Focus that was gonna be made :thumbs:

posted by  Cliffy

No, the V8 Sierras were all in South Africa. But, it'd be a pretty simple conversion (though the guys here in the States tend to build up the turbo 4s to pretty good power levels, even without the Cosworth bits...)

posted by  ChrisV

I see.....It's like that over here, with the 4's (Even the 6cyl AWD in most cases)....some of our Cossies run up to the 800bhp mark.....I've never driven one that powerfull, but I'd imagine that if the standard Cosworth is rapid...an 800bhp ome would be a rocket ship :ohcrap:

posted by  Cliffy

YEA DUDE! I LOVE EM!! wow first time in the domestic section...

posted by  silvia_star

Boy you guys can be down right mean. Remind me to never piss ya off. I have a tauras issue that I need to find a wiring schematic for it. I have to rewire it so I can sell it to get it out of my yard. I agree they are not the fastes cars in the world for sure. but, they are comfortable. So someone help me so I can get it out of my yard. And back to the imports I love so. Mary :driving:
