True. They are pretty rare. I had totally forgotten about them until I saw that. But, then again, early to mid-80s Ford/Mercury sedans were pretty forgettable.

First step is getting ALL the Taurus/Sable together as one group then sub grouping from there, maybe 89-95 96-99 2000 and up. We could even add the 500/Montego to keep the Lineage and time line correct.

I'd love to have the last year of the 1st generation of RX-7. The one with the 1.3L, fuel injected engine. But, they are getting hard to find and even harder to find parts for.

I could take one of the lesser ones and turn it into a dedicated autocrosser.

I agree, having them all together would be great! Having 31 cars there this year was super cool. I think if we continue to have good attendence they will have to split us into more groups...after all they had 6 for Merkur...which was only around for a few years!

This event has been around for years, they know what they're doing. In years past there hasn't been 10 Taurus/Sable/SHOs. Last year was weak, the few years before were better with 40+ SHOs in what '08 or '09? I can't remember what year, I could look but eh whats the difference. But with the past couple years being so weak it's justified to give us such little space. Even when we've had a lot come out it's only needed two classes, modified SHOs and stock - there really hasn't been anything else that's shown up until this year. The Merkur folks usually always come strong and they do every year. I didn't walk thru their area this time so I can't speak to their strength this year, but years past they've always deserved their space.

If you truly like cars check out the Hershey AACA show in the fall. Much bigger than Carlisle with anything and everything, barn finds and conquors.
