My 2004 Ford Taurus SEL

Hello, here is my 04 SEL Taurus Sedan with the 3.0 Duratec. I have had the car for 2 years now, and have been very happy with it, definitely will not be my last Taurus , that's for sure. :D A couple of the pictures are from the day I bought it. I have since added new rims to the car, they are from a Ford Windstar, I just love the Windstar rims with the black center caps :) I just got the 24V badges for the front fenders, which i will be adding to the car this weekend , along with the new cross drilled brakes:)

Here's my car, 98 Taurus se Vulcan/ ax4s. Only mod is the painted cluster surround. Replaced the transmission in it. Awaiting more mods such as blacked out tails and 5 spoke g4 rims. Maybe a Taurus sho body package too. Thinking of keeping the car since it's a smart decision to keep it as a first car.

I'll be the first to bend the rules and submit on the 16th :p

I humbly sumbit my 2006 Taurus SE.

I have owned this car since June of 2012, When I got it she had sat for almost 3 years and as a result had only 35,000 miles on the clock!

She currently has almost 67K and is my reliable companion everyday.
For the full story please follow the link in my signature.

Current Mods include (in order of installation).
1)Alpine CD receiver w/bluetooth
a) Alpine 500wx4 amplifier for the polk audio component speakers in the front doors(with Mach housings) and 6x9's in the rear deck.
b) Rockford Fosgate 10" Sub w/ sealed box powered by Rockford 300w amp.

2) Straight Grain Woodgrain kit (bought from Breeves02)
3) Gentex Autodim Rearview Mirror w/ Compass (bought from Breeves02)
4) 20% tint all windows
5) Amber Rear Turn Signals
6) TCCA northeast Stickers (which are peeling and should be replaced :eek:)
7) SHO-Source UDP
8) Non-DRL SJB
9) Phillips Xtreme Vision Headlamps.
10) Hella FF50 Driving lights mounted on custom brackets behind the bumper cover
11) Moog CC859 Cargo Coils
12) Body Color Mirror Caps
13) Moog Front Swaybar Endlinks
14) Motorcraft Rear Splashguards
15) Hood Bra

Just picked a nearly rust-free rear swaybar off a 2003 Silver Frost Bull in the junkyard last week, and have the new Moog Endlinks to go with it. (But they don't count cause they aren't on the car yet).
Just picked up a set of adjustable pedals off of Paul and they will go on in the next month sometime, as well as a keypad.

Now on to the good stuff...pictures!

Voting Picture






















She's not perfect. Yes theres a big wrinkle in the passenger side rear door, yes the bumpers look like they were used for bump-drafting, and yes it is a slow-a$$ automatic Vulcan, but it's my car and I take alot of pride in making it my own. :wub:

Thank you for looking

P.S. the plate changed 2 months ago because my parents moved to North Carolina and the Bull is still registered with them! I didn't steal stock photos from the interwebs

Well, guess I'll join the party late too.. hate to see the voting go down with less than a full complement of Bulls.. so here's mine.

For your consideration - my trusty 2003 Sable LS Premium.

She's got the Duratec engine and AX4N tranny. Original chrome rims.

I bought her in November of 2009 with roughly 76,000 miles on her from a used car lot in Avondale, AZ for $4400 cash.

Most of the paint scuffs, dings, etc.. were on her when I bought her - This includes the less-than-perfect tint job.

She now has 176,200 miles on her, and still runs beautifully. She devours the ~375 miles back and forth to work per week without so much as a whimper.

The only mod done at this point is the LEDs that are now in the dome light cluster, unless you count the dash mat.

Voting Pic:












Her one ding since I've had her - Some idiot wasn't looking when he backed up in a gas station parking lot, and backed into her. I expected a lot more damage, but she took it like a champ. Only got a couple nicks in her bumper


She still packs plenty of power under the hood, and barely even a drip!


One last parting shot


Nearing 180k, and she's still looking great, even in the stifling Phoenix summers. Can't complain!

Thanks for looking!
