Silver Frost seems to be the most common paint that Ford used for the Taurus / Sables. I love how it shines when it's nice and clean and waxed

Totally, do it! I don't know if they will get used, but I want some! I mean five hundred was just a rebadged taurus right? When Ford was getting all creepy making everything start with a "F".

Awesome! Well I'll get them done within the next couple weeks, and get the STREET edition posted, but as I said, I'll only show the SHOw in PM, and if it gets chosen, thats a pretty badass way to showcase my plan, dontcha think? *If we had one of the headers like mine, with Jimmers, BPD's and my UNCOVERED, it may look really awesome!

Exactly! Have some variety to the forums, and give many people a chance. Sure the guy who owns the red g4 (and the other cars) currently on our header gets praised, but what about the rest?

Nah, but still. In the maintaining thread, that'd be an awesome (and hillarious) photo for it.

Weren't we just talking about that last night? Lol.


Alright, I can also submit this other car, but...I forwarn, she isn't pretty, and doesn't have much yet. Again, if this will take a while, I can get some more done, but right now, its getting her up to specs.

So here's my little sneak peak. Black Fury is Back: Black Fury 2 (and a KITTY! )

AKA: Finally, a gen 3. Not a pretty one, but one none less.

That would be an awesome way if it is picked! I really wish I had control over what got picked, but PM me the picture when you get it finished and I'll make sure it gets entered without anyone here being able to see it.

As to having different cars on different headers, if I didn't address it earlier, I will now. I talked to Phil (the administrator from autoguide), and he said that we can probably do it, but it will probably take more time. So I asked him to try to get the ball rolling on it. I believe he has put in a request for the skin update, and basically when the creative team gets time they will start working on our update. No timeframe to when that is. When they start working on it, I'll have him request them do different cars on different headers. I would put Justin's Van in there as a joke if I had a say lol! However a lot of visitors like to see "complete" cars.

The true real plus to having this creative team do it is we don't have to worry about bugs in the skin, or viewing problems for anyone.

Just keep posting up your pictures!

I respectfully submit mine of the "Blue Goose" for a Gen 2 wagon:











Thank you for your consideration; let me know if you need bigger pictures or from a different angle.

That is great! I hope we can get some of that car on there!

If you could take more pictures, from different angles, that would be great! Get a closer one of the front nearly head on, just slightly to the side.

What's a Taurus wagon photo collection without one of the jump seat in use:




Please let me know if you would like some more.

Two more. The automatic car washes are taking a toll on the paint on the front bumper:
