yeah man

i know it, know body knows what they are, probly because they stopped making them in 97 but, if they made a 2001 everyone would want one. we are the licky ones who do know what they are, and whenever some ones sees it they turn there head to find out what kind of car it is.

Re: yeah man

Don't try that too much, the gen 2 SHO's would have taken you (with 235HP V8 off the floor no mods). The gen 3 should have BARELY taken you.. unless you have mods. If you have a 4cyl, they had a blown motor.

Actually, Manny, the second-gen SHOs were slower than the first gens with the Yamaha V6 (thank the increased porkiness of the second generation Taurus platform). That's kinda why Ford dropped the SHO option :)

It is easy to call an automatic slow when you are comparing it to a peppy stick...

I'm not shittin', dude, all the cars mags tested the 2nd gen V8 SHO as slower than the V6 first-gen SHO. I think the difference was about 3 or 4 tenths of a second in the 0-60 run, althouhg it's been a while...
