    This was the game changer right here ^^^ From this moment in time the voting evened right up! :P On a completely unrelated note I am going to be visiting the US for the first time in June for five or six days so I might just get my first ever look at some US Tauruses! So if you are in...

    Haha a tour of Melbourne in the Ghia! (Airfares not included) :lol2:
  5. Premium -vs- Regular

    Engine and Drivetrain
    Behlinla thank you, that's very informative indeed, I had no idea you used such a system. We indeed use RON here. It's also interesting to hear about the fact there is little interest in cars that require premium there and the engine modifications needed to market cars. The price of diesel is...

    It would be nice to be able to vote, say, in a 3, 2, 1 vote way with 3 votes going to your favorite then 2 votes to your second favorite and your third fave gets one vote. There are some great cars and it would be fun to be able to share the love between them a little more! I voted for Quinn's...

    I'll throw my hat into the (bull) ring for March... Ford HQ, sometime in the early to mid 90's Roll up! Roll up! See the love child of the Gen3 Ford Taurus and the Mercury Sable! (with a few SHO parts thrown in for good measure!) This is my 1996 Taurus Ghia. She was built in Jan 1996 so its...

  9. Taurus Ghia entered in Aussie All Ford Day!

    You mean this? (I don't understand the K-car-lookalike, but took a guess at this one) It's a 1980 XD Fairmont Ghia, also with a 351 engine. This one is a really nice example, you don't see many around at all these days.

    Yeah, as you said, 98SilverS, surely there would be a market if Ford brought over some of the FPV models. They are unbelievably nice cars. Well mannered around town, but just brutal when you want it to be. I nearly wet myself the first time my friend took me for a spin in his F6. The...

    Well real drivers will always learn stick, but kids today are more worried about getting their licenses and go for them in autos cos they see it as being easier so they only receive an auto license. Everyone I know my age (40ish) can drive stick. Yeah, even here I think autos are more common...

    Also, if anyone is interested, I can do a write up of how to disassemble the centre control panel of a gen3. Have any of you who have these noticed how smeary and almost blurry the numbers in the display panel are? What happens is that over the course of many years, the heat inside the car takes...

    Haha CLAYBAR! You gotta get rid of surface contaminants before any serious polishing and waxing can take place. If you haven't got a glass-like smooth surface to work with then the rest of the process won't come up as well. It's not a nice task but well worth the effort. Auto CLAYBAR with...

    Taurus and Sable General Discussion
    Well because of the Australian regulations at the time regarding light placement, for the Taurus Ghia, Ford had to design all new front indicator and parking light assembly in the front bumper, so that's what they came up with. The driving lights under those are unique to the Ghia, not even the...

    Hi guys and gals, Thanks for the very kind comments! Ok, to answer a few questions... The brake booster is on the same side of the engine bay as yours, exact same spot. What Ford did with the Ghia was build a special bracket piece that goes from the brake pedal under the dash and across to your...

    Taurus and Sable General Discussion
    Well it was a great day, I didn't win anything, but it was nice to be there with the Taurus. Got a few typically snide comments about it but also very nice, complimentary ones as well. As predicted, it was the only Taurus there. The day was stinking hot, 35C (about 98F I think) so it was a long...

    Hi everyone, 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...

    Taurus and Sable General Discussion
    And over this side of the pond, we have The Taurus Ghia. ('96 to '98) The Ghia designation was given by Ford to the top of the the line models. It started in the seventies with the LTD and Fairlane. The Ghia name has recently been dropped in favour of Titanium, which now designates the top of...
