History
Purchased from parents for $700. Sat briefly due to two locked calipers, but is back on the road following a four-corner brake job.

Named "Spock" because, while contemplating a name, that was the first one that came to mind after thinking of the 3.0 "Vulcan" engine (and yes, I am a casual Star Trek fan). Due to the car's fuel economy and overall cleanliness, it is the logical choice to drive during nice weather.
1995 Ford Taurus (Light Evergreen Frost Metallic)

Modifications

Drivetrain
3.0 Vulcan. All stock, for now...
Interior
Has a set of cheap rubber mats in lieu of what would have been nice factory ones. Must find a set...
Exterior
Nothing...yet (really wants a SHO spoiler).
Audio
A radio tuner that doesn't work worth a crap, but the tape deck works great, and speakers are good. Imagine a Taurus driving by while "Turbo Lover" blares from inside! :P
Suspension
Stock, worn OEM. Needs new struts...some nice, stiff aftermarket ones!
Wheel and Tire
Aluminum OEM alloys, which have a rather "tight" relationship with the steel hubs. Amen for an eight-pound sledgehammer to "persuade" them loose (striking the tire, of course, not the rim).

Currently has four different brands of tires. Eh, they're all the same size and all have okay to good tread. Hopefully I can narrow it down to one brand next spring!
