Default Thanks from a new owner

Hello all,
Just joined the club yesterday when I purchaed a 1998 Taurus SE wagon with 63k miles. I found a great deal on a super clean car and did a lot of research on this site before the purchase. This will be my alternate driver so I can reduce the miles I am putting on my 2011 F350 (which I love).

Already used some tips on here to get my turn signal and flashers working properly. Now it is off to get the car inspected this morning.

Thanks again for such a great forum.

The King

Woot! Ford trucks for life!

Sounds like you got a steal for that bull, only 63k miles?!

We'd all love pictures.

pictures coming soon. I just bought the car on Friday and spent Saturday getting the inspection done (hadn't been registered or inspected since 2005). Then getting the essential oil change and going through all the mechanicals.

i'll try to clean it up this week and get some pictures up.

Peace

And you'll be happy on the gas you are saving... That's for sure. Congrats on the low milage bull!

Along with that oil change do a trans fluid pan drop and filter change. Use Mercon V ATF only.

Ok, here are some pictures of the car. As of these pictures I have not had a chance to do any detailing or even a wash/vaccum. I'll try to get some more once I have done my detail and get the windows tinted.
