Default Something is pulling me to the Dark side, Guys please Help!

My buddy has a 93 Taurus SHO, Runs like a Raped Ape. He trashes 5.0 Liter Mustangs with it. Well I love my Bonny . I got a 92 SSE N/A. I have to admit my car is slow. Its a car to go slow and cruise with. Well there are Many SHO'* for sale here and I can easily sell my Bonny for $3,500-$4,200. I can get a SHO. But I cant bring myself to do it. I always get the feeling my Bonneville is communicating with me through ESP. I keep on saying im gonna sell it and In the back of my mind, I get the feeling my Bonny feels sad. So i actually talk to my car when Im alone with it. (Inside of course). I really want to get a SSEi sometime around Springtime. Id like to experience that SC it has. I just cant bring myself to go Ford. I Love Pontiac Its always been my favorite Car. Should I turn myself into the Nut house??? lolol please give me your Insight.

I won't give you advice, but I WILL TELL YOU WHAT TO DO! There'* a difference, you know?

Keep the Bonneville. Save your money for the SSEi and own TWO. SHO'* blow themselves apart daily. Don't get into a money pit.

BESIDES: who wants to drive a car that you have to fix daily anyways! That & the parts for these cars are ridiculous even by GM terms!

It was that easy, I coulda figured that out myself. now that i think about it, his SHO is always in trouble, Calipers, Gaskets, buttons fall off. Any particular problem about SSEi, SC require any special Maitenence? Any year to stay away from or is one year better than the other? highest ill go is a 95' SSEi maybe 96' if i can get a deal.

If you really want a Ford who cares what we think. But if you want a Pontiac and really want a faster one save your money and get one. Will is right about that specific ford. Anyway just think about what your goal is.

That is true.. even though the SHO seems nice ( when it'* running ) even my friends who owns them all admit that as soon as you have one problem.. its a cascade affect and now they're all trying to sell their SHO.. one even offered to trade his SHO for my 89 Z24 because he was getting so pissed at the fact he spends more time on the bus transit then driving his SHO ( cause it'* in repairs most of the time )

If you want real hp and cheap fun get a crappy old Firebird and with a v8. Then hammer that baby. Relatively cheap and lots of cheap hp options.

All Ford sounds strong and nice.. my brothers Ford Aerostar has high flow cat, terminator muffler, and a few other mods... when you floor it.. it sounds mean.. but much like most Ford.. it'* all sound.. when you look at the speedo.. it ain't going that fast, granted that the SHO has the Yamaha engine in it, it still falls apart..
