As well Ford ought to consider bringing the T-Bird back, but not price it out of the market like they did last time around. Here where I live I see many more 90 something T-Bird's and Cougar's running around than I do the monte, 90's to 06 combined. I expect to see the same from the Taurus'. Our 93 has been a great car and still gets around 32mpg hwy has never lived in a garage and still looks great.
She has the 3.8L, and at around 100k I changed the oem head gaskets for fear of them failing like so many did/do. Other than that and some of the usual front end work she's been very reliable and going strong. Even has the original exhaust!
