Lot's of great Taurii to choose from..... but for me, I'm really feel'n Jimmer's ride for COTY.

As an overall package, there's so much to appreciate, and not to mention it's tastefully executed from top to bottom, front to rear.

Best of luck to all of the COTY entrants!







On a side note..... wth ever happened to Brian05sel?

I know he was haggling with ADMIN at one point throughout this year, then he created a new account, but both ended up getting banned.

Things that make you go hhhmmmmm.

That guy was incredibly knowledgeable.

A true loss to the TCCA community for sure.

bpd1151 -- Thank you very much for the kind words. And from, in my opinion, the hottest Taurus on this site.

I've heard from him. I asked actually what happened, because all his posts in my Power Fold mirror thread disappeared.

…..and everyone says that Taurus's are grandma cars (no offense to any grandma's on here) but looking at these pictures I wouldn't call them slow grocery getter cars anymore! Good luck to everyone

Well there it is complicated to what exactly happened, and I don't even know the full story. The bottom line I got from the administrator is that he was poaching members and saying nasty things (On TCCA) about TCCA, so the Admin basically did what's called a global silence. His account isn't banned. You can view his profile, he can vote (he actually voted for himself, but I since changed the vote), but he can't send PM's or post, etc. Well he can post, but it won't show up.

So none of this was up to me, that's just the facts. I don't believe Brian even has any desire to come back to TCCA, but I may go and clean up his posts that attacked TCCA and then see if we can get him off global ignore.
