This here be my little Taurus, I have no intention of entering it to Car of the month because it is pretty much stock at the moment, but I am planning on plenty of modifications in the near future.


You should know that I have faced many many undesirable problems with this car, one of them was a V8 Camaro deliberately thrashing stones at me on an unpaved road....most of the hood has deep scratches because of that, and I had to replace the windshield because it looked like the world map...

There is also my current problem of some kid who is constantly scratching my car with a rock....he lives in the same building but I never caught him red-handed...which sucks...the scratches are not visible in the pic I took, but trust me if I take pics of those it would definitely be a horrible sight to all Taurus owners..

Oh well...heres my Taurus SE, with the Vulcan engine, Rear passenger windows tinted %50, got a few tickets for those, but it's just random in this country..

I also installed a Pioneer 6-CD changer..

Well enough with all the talking, heres my baby:

Actually it's not a Black bull


It's deep navy blue (which is kind of metallic also).....but I don't blame you, the lighting angle is bad....I am planning on changing the paint job into Black tho



I'm also planning to take a few photos later, hopefully they'll come out okay.

The car's actually looking good, considering the problems you've had! I'd like to see more pics of it, and also your neighborhood.

Guys, what we have here is a member from Kuwait. Not military, an actual citizen!

In case you can't tell, I'm pretty excited about our club's international membership.

Here are the new car pics as requested folks, actually I've been thinking of getting pics of my bull for quite some time now, thanks to this forum I've been able to get more "Bull Matters" up and running, including some important repairs which include:

*Replacing hood lift cylindars
*Replace broken rear sway-bar
*Changing power-steering fluid and cleaning power steering pump.
*Bleeding old DOT3 and put new DOT3. (been waaaay too long)
*New rear brake discs.
*Replacing cabin air filter (I don't recall EVER replacing it
)
*New PCV valve
*New timing chains
*New engine drive belt.

Hoping to be able to take good care of my Taurus with the help of the TCCA


Now on to the nice pics.....



















And these are the deep scratches I mentioned at the beginning of this thread, which were caused by the evil white Camaro.......



A small dent on the right side rear passenger door, have no idea how it happened....





And of course I didn't forget your request Mr Gervais


This is a big mosque that's close to my building...




And this is the building I currently reside in, I just moved here a couple of months ago..I can't say I'm overly thrilled to live here, I like the house and area where I grew up more, it's also a lot quieter and cleaner than this area, this place is just crazy traffic all-around all day long...

I'm either really stupid, or I dont pay attention! Thats cool you're from kuait.

Your bull looks really good. I could hardly see the dents and scratches. lol, if you ever saw mine, you'd be happy you only have dents and scratches.
Ouch....I just took a look at "scarface" and umm....I dunno how you could drive it like that


Just the small dent I have makes my heart ache when I see it...

Although I have been in a couple of accidents that made the bull look really ugly, but I fix it almost right after each accident, now it has been a year and two months accident free! wish me accident free for life!

PS: Firespirit: The deep scratches are less visible than they were because I had to repaint the whole front side of the car due to an accident that happened after the evil Camaro incident.

lol, its easy when you dont have the 4K they want to fix the front end and 225 for a door just lying around. Good thing I get paid next week. Maybe Christmas I'll have a new door.

Anyway, it's not that bad, esp when I have the bra on it. The front end looks fine when I have the bra on. I just can't have it on right now because I got a fender replaced on the right side.

Excellent pics! There's a lot more American cars than I thought there would be! In fact, in the last pic it looks like there is a Chevy Blazer or Suburban.

Thanks for showing us your neighborhood, it doesn't look all that bad!

Are you Kuwaiti (sp?)? I recall reading that you were born in the country. Your english spelling/ gramatical skills rival some of the people that grew up in this country.

Yes I'm kuwaiti, I was born and raised here


Actually I was kinda wondering when someone would bring THAT up



Heh...in any case there is an image that I didn't add to the post earlier, but since Mr Gervais mentioned american cars....




This is a car dealer that is very close to my building, the car lot for the shop shows in the back right angle shot I took of my Taurus...I felt like taking a pic of that for some reason, but since you guys love pics so much, I also took some pics (around 50 I think) of the International Automobile Show that was held in Kuwait from Late Nov to Early Dec..

But I'd have to start a new topic in a diffrent Forum for that
...Odds and Ends I guess..
