Ford SHO mid engine RWD in a Fiero Redneck dune buggy
Initial Startup, running in the parking lot by my shop. A few donuts, a few
drifts and some straight line runs. A piss poor attempt to laying a patch!
My friends and I have spent over 400 hours building this car. It is caged
with race seats and harness belts. I plated the chassis and completely
rebuilt the back end of the frame to suit my driving needs! I used the
subframe from the Taurus SHO and modified it to fit the Fiero. I also
plated the subframe and added a 1/2" thick aluminum skidplate! This baby is
built to drive the piss out of it! :D
It will be interesting when I start running exotic blends of fuel, as I am
only starting off with some 87 Octane fuel to start with here. More to come
I have an MTX and a auto Tranny I am willing to sell!

Ford Taurus 3.0L 12v Timing Cover Coolant Leak Repair
In this video I show how to remove the front cover on the 3.0L 12v Vulcan
engine. Coolant leak from the main coolant ports is very common on these.
This can be a very costly repair, with this video I am sure anyone with any
mechanical experience can handle this job with ease.

Test Drive: 1996 Ford Taurus SHO
In this video I give a full test drive of the 1996 Ford Taurus SHO. I take
viewers on a close look through the interior and exterior of this car while
showing details, over viewing of features, and noting unique styling cues
to the vehicle itself. I also show the engine and the details of it, start
it up and see how it sounds under acceleration. I take it on various road
surfaces and demonstrate performance and driving characteristics. A
thorough test drive to give a greater appreciation of the vehicle.
