Taurus Ghia entered in Aussie All Ford Day!
I haven't posted much recently but still lurk from time to time when I get the chance.
The reason for this thread is that in two days time, this coming Sunday Feb 17, it is the All Ford Day for the state of Victoria where I live in Australia. Of all the All Ford Days down under, the Victorian one is the biggest. Over 1200 Fords of all kinds will be on display.
Anyway, I have entered my 1996 Taurus Ghia this year! The organisers of the event have informed me that this will be the very first time anybody has brought along a Taurus. As you may or may not be aware, the Taurus was not a popular car here, sold only from March 1996 to October 1998 when imports were stopped because of poor sales. In the end, 4200 of what for you guys is essentially the Gen3 were sold here.
I will be posting pics of the event, pics of my car and pics of other Fords in the days after Sunday. I'll try to include many Aussie Fords for you all to have a look at.
As the venue for this year is an hour and a half drive from where I live, I am going to drive down in convoy with two of my Ford loving friends. My mate Garry has a 1970 302 Boss Mustang fully restored and my other mate has the fastest production Ford ever produced in this country, a 2012 Falcon F6 310.
I said I was happy to drive down with them as long as they kept up with the Taurus!
I am very excited, I'm not particularly expecting to win any trophy as my car is a daily driver, however I can guarantee there isn't a Taurus in the country that is loved as much as I love mine.
I'm there to fly the flag for the Taurus!
Wish me luck and I'll keep you posted!
The Ghia with all the gear!
