Meet Bull 2.0, a 2014 Ford Taurus SEL AWD. We'll be celebrating our first anniversary together in January.

Voting Shot:

You may remember me from Carlisle:

Where I made a lot of friends:

Then again, we did too in Albany:

...and Toronto/Oakville!

Shot of the interior. Stock... save for some WeatherTech's getting hard use:

...although I love this little detail, too.

And a little vanity doesn't hurt either:

But sometimes, even a Bull needs a little Buffalo to guide the way, particularly when this Bull hails from Buffalo!

But we're also not afraid to get a little dirty:

Snow tires are presently on as shown in the pictures with the black wheels. Other pictures are of the summer/stock rims.


-WeatherTech front floor mats and window visors all around
-All Wheel Drive gauge (see build thread)
-Police Interceptor grille
-LUKAS LK-7900 dashcam
-Activation of amber DRLs
-Swapped out door speakers
-Ford Remote Access (cellular based remote start/anti-theft)

Oh what the heck...

I will enter my 2005 Ford Taurus SE FFV... The beater. Has 129k miles. This car is my winter junk pile to keep the salt off my Fusion. I lost my 2006 cause of salt and rust, and I'll be damned if the Fusion gets salted!

Anyways this car has taken a transformation. Bought for $700 in da hood, it had front end damage, the interior was absolutely disgusting and reeked of pot, the wheels did not match, the back bumper was completely peeled, and it ran like crap.

I gave the car new life... it now runs like a champ, got matching wheels, a new (used) back bumper, a compete junkyard interior with 68k miles of use, a new used fender, a key fob so keyless works, a mach amp and tweeters, my trunk mounted CD changer set up from my 2006 Taurus, an autodimming mirror, a woodgrain upgrade, some oem centennials I had laying around, some Taurus mudflaps that were once on Josh's 2001 SES, green LED underglow from the 2006, and LED interior lamps and plate lights for added fun. Oh, and some stickers because! It is surprisingly reliable, and I could not be happier with my winter ride. Although, honestly, I cannot wait til spring to get back in the Fusion. The Taurus is rusty and slow.

Oh and here ya go.. pictures:

And just for good measure... this is what the car started as:

2003 Ford Taurus SE
Vulcan 3.0 OHC
Dark Shadow Grey

This actually is my second Taurus I've owned. The 1st was totaled, parked on the street, by a drunk woman. Anyway, since it was the same car, I took off the aftermarket parts and moved them to this one. Ironically its one year newer, same color, but with a few thousand more miles on it and better gas mileage.

As far as what I've done to it, and i'm not done,
but here is whats added:
-Two Glowshift gauges--Volt and Trans temp
-Axle-back straight pipe(no muffler)
-Rain guards
-Removed airbox silencer
-Aftermarket radio deck
-Sony Xplod radio
-Sony Xplod 1000W Amp w/ 2 Power Acoustic Kript series subwoofers
-Mustang Mach 1 chin splitter
-Aftermarket spoiler(personally painted)
-Fog lights(behind the grille)
-Green LED underglow
Now this car had a stock spoiler so I had to replace the rear shelf trim piece with one that could accommodate a third brake light that I also had to get.
