Default The Taurus/BubbleBonne Comparison

Now a few weeks ago, there was a discussion about how late 90s bubblebutt bonnes resemble late 90s bubble butt tauruses. Now a couple weeks ago, probably about 3 days after that discussion, I found a late 90s, silver bubblebutt SSEi and a bubblebutt taurus parked right near each other. I only had my phone camera handy, but in person, it was a frightening resemblance. ON with the pics! (oh and I didn't card the bonne because it was owned by an older couple. plus I have no more cards lol)

Bonneville is still much better looking, and has a better motor.

Taurus = fugly. While the bubblebutt Bonne isn't too appealing to me, it'* much better.

But imagine how similar those would look if the Taurus' taillights were turned upside down...they'd match the contour of the Bonne'* pretty closely.

Another reason why you don't want a bubble butt.

Aurora owners have always known that both model styles of the Taurus look a lot like the 2 body styles of the Aurora.
