I got back from Atlanta this past Saturday. While I was there, I noticed a black gen 3 one day while I was goin to the store . I liked the back end of it, and when we went buy it, i noticed it had the export edition front bumper and all. Preety neat looking. My camera had no batteries so no pics, but Maybe some of you Atlanta folk can snap a shot if you see it.

It was at the intersection of Lower Roswell Rd/Old Paper Mill. Black Gen 3 24V. It was registered in GA in Cobb County...dont remember the plate :( Not much help, but it looked to be in Great condtion. It has the 24V badge on the fenders.

:eek: I seen a unusual black Taurus in Cobb County a couple of months ago. I can't remember if it was a gen 3 or gen 4, and I only saw it from the rear. I swear it was a convertible. Is there a such thing? I wanted to follow it but I was very late for work.

Aww, not what I expected. Last time I was in ATL (I'll be going through there a lot more now that I have to drive through there to get down to my parents new place in Sharpsburg), I stayed up with this gen4 black Taurus w/custom exhaust. It sounded pretty badass, until I saw the sticker in the front top windshield, and in the rear... big stickers saying NASCAR, to compliment the NASCAR-branded steering wheel.

NASCAR is nice and all, but a standard Taurus isn't a NASCAR car, and doesn't really need big stickers saying so. :)

I too have seen this car up in Marietta. Its got a Source Sticker on it and thats a Performacne/ Audio customs shop. Ill ask around and see if they know who the owner is. But also I have seen many gen 3 s around here with custom stuff done. But nobody knows theres a club about them. Saw a 99 sittin on like 18s, exhaust, system, Tint, Custom hood and a custom paint job with like flames of metal it was tight.

Cool. Just got back from Atlanta. I drove around a bit in East Cobb on J.Ferry and Roswell. Maybe you could get a pic sometime? I'm not going back till November. But what I did see was a buttload of duratec's. Around where I live in SC...duratec is rare its either Vulcan or Essex.
