Yeah I definitely was pretty lucky to find it. Funny how things work out. I was panicking when the trans went on my Taurus, and now I have this. I'll post pics as soon as I get the car, which will be Monday at the latest.

Just picked up the car this morning. Brought it home, cleaned it up, and posted some pics in the "Your Ride" section. I feel like I'm driving a Ferrari coming from my Taurus haha.

Hmm not a 3.0L Taurus by chance?

If so I know that feeling because my parents have a Taurus

3.0 would be correct. Not a terrible car, especially since I got it from a friend for free, and lasted me a little over 2 years before the trans crapped out. But switching over to an 01 Bonneville SLE... I was all smiles driving home after I picked her up.
