I would like to reintroduce you all to my 2002 Taurus SES- The Silver Bullet! Like every other Taurus Ive owned, this one has proven to be reliable as ever. With almost 187k miles, its been an excellent car, requiring nothing more than oil changes and a tune up. (Knock on wood!!) I definitely plan on buying a 5th gen Taurus (or maybe even a Five Hundred) as my next car. Thats how much I love them. This forum has definitely been a big help to me over the past few years and i really appreciate it. First picture will be my submission picture. Bonus points for the second Taurus in my last pic!

This is not to take away from Matt's SES, just to create competition so we can have a winner (hopefully Matt, he deserves to win!) ! :D

This is "Sapphira" (as my sister calls it), my 2002 Taurus SEL Premium. It's totally the "family car", more than my mom's Grand Caravan. All 4 of us in the family drive it, my sister learned how to drive in it, and we've put 13,000 miles on it so far! We purchased it from the original owners in August 2014 and it's been the most reliable car we own despite it having the highest mileage!

Here is my 1991 GL 4 Door Sedan all 100% original.
I have made no modifications to this Gen 1 Taurus. I drive it everyday and so it is a family car. My dad bought it original in 1991 and I acquired it from him in 2009.
It has not been “error free” on maintenance as I have posted for several years on the Taurus forum. Had to have replaced normal suspension type parts over the past few years but it is driving very well these days. As you can see the exterior is in magnificent shape. I would like to thank many people on this forum for all the sound advice I have received over the years.

Here is my 2013 Ford Taurus SEL. I did enter it in the last COTQ but I have since made a few additions.

I purchased the car from a local dealership in January of 2015. In my approximate 11 months of ownership I have put approximately 22,000 miles on the car. I drive it a lot, and I have a tendency to drive it hard. This car has been more than reliable for me and has never let me down.

Modifications/changes from stock:
Police Interceptor grille
Go Rhino push bar
20" SHO performance package rims with Pirelli Scorpion snow & ice tires
(2) Shok Triton 15" subwoofers
American Bass PH1600.1D amplifier
NVX line-out converter to facilitate factory integration
Sky High Car Audio 1/0 and 4ga CCA wiring
VTE Warehouse fuseblocks and power distribution components
Anthracite Grey pastidipped fender accents and trunk lid accent

Throwback to the day I bought the car:

Here is my 2005 Murcury Montego, affectionately called the tego. When I got it, it was just another car. Nothing fancy, just wheels for work. Then I started doing little things, and now I have big plans for her. It is only FWD with the 6 speed. I've put about 10k of pretty hard miles on her, and all she's done is eat a fuel pump haha. She has 153k and runs like a top.
Mods:
20% tint on front windows, 5% on the back with a 5% brow
Plastidipped an evo style front end
Plastidipped the stock rims black
Avs wind deflectors
Planet audio touch screen HU
2 12" subs (cheap and no pics)
Stickers everywhere
Led fogs and tag lights

Third pic for voting pic please
