Ride Info

UPDATE FEB 25,2012 The swap to 5-speed transmission is done. Runs and sounds great. Now to upgrade some of it's components, like the clutch and diff.

Bought her as a beater. Loved this grocery getter so much I decided to totally do her up. Lights, sounds, performance, appearance. Doing it all. It's a huge job that I don't expect to be finished with until 2015, but I love every bit of it.
The goal is to build the ultimate generation 4 Taurus with the Vulcan engine. The target is 700+ horsepower and at least one car show trophy. All this and she is still the car I get my groceries in. LOL.
I only feed her AMSOIL synthetic oil and minimum 94 octane fuel.

That's why I wanted to do the Taurus up. Lots of them out there, but very few done up. I want to be original.

Great Torri! Got mine for the grocery shopping but soon realize that Bull needs freeway not just city. You have maintained it well, great inspiration for me! All salutes to you.

Yep, It's a 5 speed also! i got it last summer for $2,000 not a damn thing was wrong with it.

I will race you anytime title for title C'mon it's a Taurus

JIMMER's picture
03/01/2012 - 3:21pm

That would just be dumb since I haven't done the motor yet. Don't underestimate a model of car as you don't know what may be lurking under the hood. After all, NASCAR used to race Taurus's. Now, when I am finished the powertrain, I would be happy to meet you at the track.

patti's picture
03/02/2012 - 9:31am

LOL you better have at least 500 hp which I don't think you will have Race would be over before you got out of 1st gear

JIMMER's picture
03/02/2012 - 1:18pm

I just noticed that we don't even live in the same country. What kind of hillbilly moron challenges someone to race when it is unlikely we would ever be with 100 miles of each other. LOL. Funny how yesterday your Cobra had a 289 engine, today it suddenly has a 428. Fastest engine swap I have ever seen. LOL. How about some pictures. So far we only see a picture of the front end of a Cobra. One picture. At least post some more so we might even believe it's your car. LOL. — Then, if you want to enter into a battle of trash talk, bring it on. But not until you so ample proof of that car being yours. Otherwise, you are going on ignore. LOL

03/02/2012 - 1:31pm

Maybe she spends all her time in the garage building a faster car and not on the computer trying to impress people with pictures just sayin she would tear you up on the track

03/02/2012 - 1:33pm

And you're the first 1 that mentioned meeting at the track so you must be the moron hillbilly LOL

patti's picture
03/02/2012 - 2:04pm

Jimmer I updated my pics and I will sell you my old motor if you want to go faster SBF over 400 HP can you handle it

SC Doug's picture
03/02/2012 - 2:48pm

You put a lot of effort into that car. I bet it's a fine riding machine. Great work!

JIMMER's picture
03/02/2012 - 6:26pm

Hey patti, Nice job googling a picture of a 428 engine and claiming it is yours. I googled it and look what I found, http://www.proformanceunlimited.com/…5HP_AAL.html You just ripped off everything that is on this company's website. You even copy/pasted their spec info and claimed it is yours. How sad and pathetic is that. LOL. I wonder if you even own a car. LOL. Seriously, No pictures, I call bullshit". LOL

JIMMER's picture
03/02/2012 - 6:28pm

SC Doug, thanks, it is rewarding actually having a car and making something special out of it. Your rides look great.

JIMMER's picture
03/02/2012 - 7:01pm

Jeff, seriously? The pictures I have show a lot of build work. What does she have? A car pic she ripped off of cargurus.com and an engine pic she ripped off from a company in Jersey. My pics are of building a faster car.
