May need a "SHO" down at BB11 - 10-10-2016

The 2013 Mustang this week overheated. The fan relay and connector burned up. So $500 later (got raped and not even a kiss on this one!), my wife said that she thinks that the car is cursed and I need to get something else.

Took a look at Taurus SHO today. Nice car, really loaded with all the things that I wish my Mustang had on it. And the incentives that Ford is offering makes it very tempting - even throwing in a $2,000 bonus if I trade in the Mustang. So I am seriously considering making a change.

The lease on Pat's Lincoln is up in April 2017, we are thinking about moving to North Carolina within the year. So Pat said we could go with the Taurus SHO, and after getting to North Carolina I should then get another Mustang and she would take the SHO. So really thinking about this move for now.

I wonder if Rich sold my 2006? Maybe another Xcharger car back in my garage?

Use the SHO as your contingency if you don't get a Mustang by then, if you dispose of this one

Really like the sho A LOT. Smooth, comfortable and powerful ride.

We were impressed with it. My wife loves her Lincoln MKZ, but liked the extra size and ride height of the SHO. And it definitely has more power than her MKZ ecobbost 2.0.

Your plan sounds like a good one. Allow me to be an enabler and edge you towards getting the SHO.

If you don't go for the SHO, check out the 2017 Fusion Sport with the twin turbo 2.7 V-6 when they come out. Granted you won't get the deal on the Fusion that you would on the left over SHO.

I looked at the Fusion Sport, but my wife didn't like it. Surprised since she loves her MKZ which is the same platform.

Anyway, at the dealership now going over paperwork. I was going to swap the hoods but decided it is too much hassle. The stock hood is on the other side of town. So would have to take the cowl hood off, drive across town and put the stock hood on assuming the guy is home who is trying to sell it.

Then the hassle of storing the cowl hood and arranging shipping to a buyer.

Probably will get the new car on Monday. We sold the condo (2 days, cash offer at our asking price!) and the movers are coming tomorrow. We will relocate to Monroe, MI until I retire again. Ended up renting a house there and the next move is to North Carolina - although I will probably end up doing something there, ramp up my mediation practice there I guess.

The dealership said no problem with the move "we'll deliver the car to you". I am waiting to hear if they want to swap the summer performance tires for the all seasons and I will sell the performance tires in the spring. Have a set of snow tires mounted on wheels sitting in the garage in Monroe already. Wasn't expecting to get rid of the car so will be putting those up for sale too.
