I was driving past the East Chicago Ford Plant, which currently makes Sables and Taurus, and now they have upgraded their lines for the 500 and Montego. I just saw a new montego but unfortunately my digicam was out of batteries. It looked stunning, the HIDS were nice, fogs were on, the front end looked classy. It was black, and had stickers on it. I only caught a quick glimpse and was unable to pull a u-turn (he was heading opposite way) to catch up and maybe chat with him (driver) about it.

I will go by a few times Monday and keep my eye out and have my digi cam ready incase any 500/Montego's go by. I would love to see this car even closer then I did, and maybe get a ride. It looked beautiful.

I know I know, This thread is worthless without pics. :rolleyes:

It's funny you should mention that. I just got some brochures and whatnot in the mail today from Mercury about the Montego. I think it will be an excellent car (along with the 500). My mom will probably be buying one of the two if she decides against an Explorer. B)

Just saw the pic on the yahoo sight above. SWEET.
While I was there I looked up the 2005 Taurus. No SES, No LX and No Duratec for 2005. Is that a mistake or are we getting screwed.

The 05 Taurus has trimed down to two trim levels: SE and SEL. Some other features have disappeared such as the adjustable pedals.

The Duratec isn't available even as an option on the SE, but it is an option on the SEL. It looks like the base SEL is now like the SES was. IMHO Ford is getting ready to make the Taurus a fleet only car like the Escort.

I wish I could take pictures of the cool things I saw at Ford's MPG. Definitely saw a Montego, 500, Mustang convert, V12 Vanquish, Freestyle, and the Zephyr, to name just a couple.

Yeah, same here. I was at somethign else and saw pics of the futura with 5 or so different drivetrain combinations.

I dont know, imo that Montego doesn't look very appealing.
