I am constantly asked why in the world i would want to own a taurus. People always tell me that its a "grandpa car" or "its a ford, what good can it be?" . I have many reasons for loving my car; performance, style, endurance, they are all good reasons. The reason i will speak of today is the ability to change anything and everything. By looking in "my garage" you can see the many upgrades i have done to my car, and yesterday i added another one. Months ago i stripped a bunch of parts out of a SHO including handful of control modules. one of the modules was the power antenna control box. i plugged it in months ago but since a had a regular antenna it didnt do me any good. I was at the local junk yard yesterday looking for a new front bumper for my 95 and came across an 87 LX wagon with a perfect power antenna. It was up but nobody had bent it yet. with gentle pressure i moved it up and down to make sure the cable inside was still intact. I pulled it out and today put it in my car, it was a perfect fit. Didnt have to do any mods just plug it into the power connector that was already there. This is why i love my car its already setup to do just about anything you want it to. When i installed my 140 MPH speedo all i had to do was plug it in and the tach worked right away. Once i plugged in the various modules, other stuff started coming online, like the "lamp out" warning feature. Its just so easy to go from GL to SE with a minimum amount of work.
