Ok this is something i've been thinking about seeign a few examples in the car yards.
Taking Falcons aside. If i someone was in the market for a small buzz box for $14-15k. A good car to consider would be a Taurus. Yeah yeah i know many people can't stand the shape of them, but after looking at the car feature wise and what you get it isn't a bad thing at all.
I recently saw an immaculate one for like $13,000 with leather climate control etc, and not to mention the power of teh Duratec V6 making 149kw a de-tuned engine from the S-Type.
I've seen ones aroudn with a subtle body kit and a small spoiler they actually look nice.
And before anyone rush's to conclusion, no i'm not interested in buying one at all i love my EF too much.
