*sigh* the sad thing is forbes is right... ford probably never made much money from the SHO.. if they did they wouldn't of stopped producing them
Link: http://www.forbes.com/vehicles/2004/04/23/...l?partner=msnbcThe Taurus SHO makes our list because it is an example of a hot-rod version of a car that had no business being hot-rodded. Other nominees include the Cosworth version of Chevrolet's abysmal Vega hatchback and the SVT version of Ford's Contour. The Taurus SHO was a slow seller because it was an expensive Taurus (i.e., an oxymoron) and didn't have automatic transmission until 1993. Of course, automatic transmission doesn't belong on performance cars to begin with, so the SHO was nonsense before and after 1993.[/b]
:roflmao:The guy that wrote that article probably got beat by an SHO and now he's all pissy about it. [/b]
and the SVT version of Ford's Contour.[/b]
There were two sections to the article, current vehicles and others, which included cars not now on the market....where the SHO was included.Originally posted by jason8225@Apr 26 2004, 07:26 PM
I disagree with most of what they had to say about all of their "overhyped cars". Plus why are they just now talking about the SHO when it was discontinued 5 model years ago??!! They're really on top of things!Forbes blows.Their opinions are wrong.
It is clear that nobody from their magazine has driven any of those cars to formulate the opinions, too.
