Default Found an Excellent Rose Mist SHO for Sale...

Hey everyone.

Just thought that I would help this Bull (and dealership...they can't seem to sell it even after several months) find a nice home. It appears to be in fantastic-condition, though I haven't seen it in person to be sure (it would be a 2 hour-minimum drive). I know that there are many V8 SHO-lovers that are always on the hunt for a Rose Mist, so here it is. If you watch the video by clicking one of the pictures you can see that it's priced at $4000. I personally have the idea of buying it in the back of my mind, but I don't know how people would react to an 18 year-old male driving a purple car, SHO or not. And the 126k miles...

Anyways, cheers and enjoy.

1996 Ford Taurus SHO

Ah, and I apologize if this should be in the classifieds section despite the fact that I'm not the one selling it.

Was Rose Mist only available in 1996? I don't know that I've ever seen one in person...

Correct, 1996 is the only year SHOs had the Rose Mist option. I forget which number is correct, but only 201 or 203 of them were ever made. Quite rare as you can imagine.

EDIT: Wait, possibly scratch those 200 numbers, as now I'm reading 58 were made...I think that the 200 numbers may have been for the Medium Graphite color.

Anyone buying it should check for mold EVERYWHERE. One of my wife's four uncles lived in Elma and later on, Hoquiam, and used to complain about it constantly. It's virtual rain-forest conditions out on the peninsula. He was forever cleaning out his A/C systems.

Its sad, there's one here in my Ogden area, thats just beaten to hell. There was one in Arizona for sale, and I think one in washington I saw too. Similar miles.

*18 yr old driving a purple car? Who cares! People drive purple hondas... this has 4 more boom booms on the engine!

Hah, good point Quinn. There are lots of ricers out where I live...can't stand 'em. This Rose Mist would show 'em who's boss. Plus I would love to see everyone's face at how a purple-colored Taurus rumbles with that amazing V8. (would need some Dynomax mufflers of course)

I saw a rosemist sable at the JY. First time I saw that color in person, but I don't think a G3 Sable is anything to write home about.

UPDATE: it MIGHT actually be a medium graphite SHO, not a rose mist. I looked at a side-by-side picture of the two and this car seems to resemble the medium graphite more. Apparently rose mist is more of a pinkish tone, whereas medium graphite is more purple.

EDIT: Never mind.

Yeah, I actually think the ones around here are the graphite too. But maybe the mist. THere's a sexy photo of a rost mist SHO next to a blossom tree, somewhere...
