Found in the Wild: All SHO, No Go


It was a close race between the weather and the condition of this car as to which could be more depressing. This 1994 Ford Taurus SHO (Super High Output) has current registration tags and a valid parking permit but hasn't moved for a while judging by the flat tire and its dire need of a wash. Enjoy it while you can, because this is about the only time a Z34 Lumina will pass a SHO.


The monochromatic Taurus SHO took the world by storm in 1989 when it was introduced. Its 6.6 second 0-60 time was on par with contemporary sports cars and made the SHO quite the sleeper. The SHO's party trick was its 220 horsepower DOHC Yamaha V6.




The V6 loved to rev and featured quite possibly, the world's prettiest intake manifold. This particular SHO is an automatic and as such is fitted with a larger and tourqier 3.2 liter engine. Though fairly reliable, the Yamaha V6 was still a very complex piece of equipment and can be costly to maintain as these cars age. 



This forlorn Ford represents an interesting time when American FWD performance sedans duked it out against each other. Chevy had the Lumina Z34 and Dodge had the turbocharged Spirit R/T in their arsenal. Which one would you choose?
