Being that 2 submissions is not going to cut the mustard, here is my Duratec powered 2001 Sable Premium Wagon. She's been a workhorse. We've had our ups and downs but she's still here and kicking! It has been turned into my wife's DD driving 60 miles a da for work and I've used it on occasion when my work van decided to take a crap.

Here she was in my driveway the day I bought her in June 2011



Since that day I've done a LOT of work to her. I did UIM/LIM gaskets, replaced the 3rd cat after finding it was clogged, plugs and wires along with a coil pack to get rid of a P0301. Recently I replaced the front/rear ball joints, inner/outer tie rods.

She's been the family and the 'stuff' hauler many times






Kind of an old picture but I'll get new ones tomorrow.....
I was tired of looking at the plain old cluster so I figured I'd paint the surround




After a little while I wanted to have some better sound so I picked up a complete Mach setup. I adapted my stock mounting plate to the Mach amp and added the tweeters.




Then I did 20% tint to the rear windows.



I had the Tbird rims on it and decided I wanted to dip them and the front grille



After doing a lot of back and forth I finally decided to put the car in the back yard and fix it up to get it for reliable DD use and sell my old Tbird. My 2 year old even helped me :)



At that point I replaced the rear strut rod bushings, the oil pan gasket, the trans mount and rear motor mount. After all that work I put it back on the road.


And the voting shots....










Here's a link to my Project thread that's pretty much outlined all I've done to my Bull over the last 3 years!

And with that we have 3 submissions........ look for the voting thread.
