Maybe not enough traffic for a Gen I,II & a Gen III section. Cars are quite similar, then those 96's came along and screwed everyhting up. LOL

I have to admit I like the Gen. 3 SHO's, hell I almost traded in my 98 SE for a black one, but the 1st Gen. SHO's are the fastest from the factory. That 5 speed 6 cyl. can run with the best of them. Here in Brunswick, Georgia, there are 2 1989 SHO's. One is red and the other is silver. Very nice looking cars.

1998 Ford Taurus SE w/24V Duratec:
-Autophysics cold air intake
-Magnecor 8.5mm competition plug wires
-Bosch platinum plugs
-Rally racing driving lights
-17" Prime 134 tuner wheels
-KVR cross-drilled rotors and Carbon Fiber brake pads
-Yakima roof rack
-Panasonic head unit
-4 JL Audio 10W0's
-Kenwood 5x7's
-Kenwood 4 channel amp
-Sony 4 channel amp
-Power Acoustics 180w tweeters
much much more.....................

I would have loved to own a V-8 powered (albeit small) Taurus, but that body style just never apealed to me. I have a '93 LX and a '93 SHO. The LX was leased when new for 4 years, and I would have turned it in for a new '97 Taurus if the redesigned body turned me on. Instead, I opted to buy the LX rather than lease a new "fishbowl" styled Gen III Taurus. I know the car evolved in other ways that make it a better driver in some ways, but...

When I had a chance to buy a nice, 93 SHO a year and a half ago, I decided to go for it. Although it's not as quick as my '91 5.0 Mustang, it IS a great car in it's own right, and I enjoy driving it everyday. I know the Gen III's have an improved chassis and brake system, but I'm not convinced the small V-8 engine is any improvement over the Yamaha V-6. Style is a matter of taste, and I've already mentioned my feelings about that!

I hope that the SHO's continue to keep people's interest in the future, no matter which edition you like most.
