Sigh. 1999 Ford Taurus here... it is my penance for hot rodding everything else we own. Came from my wife's grand parents - virtually spotless. I have only had to do oil changes, a belt, and some tires since it was safetied (battery, tie rod, swaybar end link, etc). Heat, A/C, starts, runs, Natasha dropped it into a ditch last Winter, still runs.
