2nd time around with Taurus, first 03 and now '13

Hi folks,
Just picked up my 2013 Taurus SEL AWD last month. Able to find it with 32k and for a good price.
Traded in my 2010 Jeep Wrangler for it at an even trade. Had the Jeep for a 1 1/2 years but the job now requires me to drive to the state capitol monthly which is a hour and 1/2, one way. Jeeps aren't really made for comfort.
Prior to the Jeep, I had a '04 P73 Crown Vic that I did quite a bit of work to and had gotten fairly quick. Never dyno but probably up to 250hp. Got the Taurus and was pleasantly surprised by the hp. Before the Vic, it was a '03 Taurus.
I have motorcycles so I'm fully aware of speed and don't need my cars to be that fast. Where I live in the White Mountains of NH, a Mustang GT isn't in the cards but the SEL is. Have the need for dirt, I'll just take my DR650 out.

So far enjoy being back in Ford. Always been a Blue Oval guy back from my first car, a '72 Maverick :shock:
Looks forward to learning more here.
