The focus of this club has never been geared toward the SHO
, so why all of a sudden is it turning that way? The sho
is no more than another trim level, the same way it ALWAYS has been. Hell half the sho
owners don't even consider the thing a Taurus. What, now all of a sudden for 2010 there will be no Taurus, only the sho
? We're the ONLY club in existence that caters to this car for the "entry" level driver, the sixteen yo kid that just got his first car, or just got grandma's old car, that just happened to be what most people consider some raggedy ol POS Ford, a Taurus. It wasn't the sho
that saved Ford's ass back in 1986, it was the base model Taurus, and if things go well for Ford it'll be the same way this time around, it won't be the.... in many members' opinion, the OVERPRICED sho
, it'll be the base model, called TAURUS.
As for the rotb, many of the ideas being spawned here in this thread, have been presented before, and were also previously rejected. Ask me how that makes any sense. I've got a damn good set of events for a ROTB that could have "gone down" this year. There is no track event, that's not to say you won't have a good amount of driving once you're there. But you know what, I got tired of all the excuses. You want to be in a car club, but yet most of the complaints are that it's too far or your car isn't up to it. How can that be?? In 2005 I put roughly 2700 miles on my 1993 GL that at the time had close to 132,000 miles on it. It's an old car, had an old worn engine/trans, but yet, if I would have thought about the mileage in a little different fashion, then seriously, it wouldn't have been reliabe enough to drive to work for two weeks. That's what you guys who use that excuse are really saying. That you can't count on your most likely much NEWER car to do the SAME thing my wore out ass old bomb DID. Someone talked about dedication, WTF?? So, because someone can't afford it, or the car won't make it... they can't attend a meet, they aren't dedicated?? Who's fuzzy-logic is that ****????
