Just had a look at Ford's page on it. HID's, 19" wheels, LED tail lights and a power liftgate. The ? is, how much is it going to cost to get an AWD version?

I actually kind of liked the Taurus X when I first saw it. I just looked again, not so much anymore...

V8 and 6spd? Bring it! The hi-po wagon segment here is near nonexistent for the time being unfortunately. BMW makes them, but they are very small in numbers.

"Mini shooting brake"...? Could you clarify that for the Dunce?

Sorry, got to be a bit of a "mini-ite" for that one.

Shooting brake - english term for a wagon... dates back to the horse drawn carriage days.

Yeah - the older ones were pretty rare (I don't see them often at our Mini-meets here)
The new ones aren't out yet...


And that Mustang looks interesting, kind of like a Jensen Interceptor.
I am guessing it is a photoshop special though

actually probably not... I bet he think its as pretty as the south side of a north facing horse

I was thinking about that. Touching the nozzle is usually the dirty part of fueling in my area...not as bas as filling my Rabbit at a truck stop though (rubber gloves are my friend).

/would mention how funny I find the word "nozzle", but you guys would probably wonder about my "extracurricular activities".
