it's made it past the 200K mark which means since last june i've done over 15,000 Miles worth of driving.

All exterior body damage to the Bumpers and Driver side fender were there when i got the car...aside from that nearly all the body is in OK shape as far as major dents and dings goes...it needs a new paint job though and it seems like it may have already been painted. and not very well at that.

the Scratch on the passenger side was made by an ******* driver and im going to leave it at that.

as you can see the Engine bay is Very dusty & dirty....the car has dirt and dust in places it shouldnt have it..if you pull back the center console and various interior panels there's grime in places i cant possibly imagine why or how it got there.

Besides the Compressor the only thing done to this car is a Radio & Speakers plus a crappy Headliner job by me...with painted A & C Pillars to match...joy lol

The Jury's still out as to what the Fate of this car is. it's certainly lasted longer than that 05 Taurus that Preceeded it.

Has the eng. strut (dogbone) in the 3rd pic been changed out? Those (their bushing) fail regularly on these cars.

No it hasn't. I mentioned earlier in the post that the motor mounts need to be changed.
