The gang at Ford and I go way back. A couple of years ago, they put me in a Ford Focus for a week. Then, last year, I got a Ford Fusion for a week. This summer, I'll be driving two cars, starting with the 2011 Ford Taurus AWD Limited I picked up yesterday.
To be honest, I like smaller cars. I always have, and I think I always will. I'm looking forward to next week when I get the Fiesta, but this Taurus has been a fun drive. It's sure roomy, and it's got the Sync technology so I can have fun with my iPod and Blackberry. Not to mention the navigation system and Sirius radio, so I can listen to Howard Stern. It's fully loaded with plenty of fun perks. My current car doesn't even have automatic windows.
There's another reason I wanted to try out the new Taurus. Many moons ago, I owned an '86 Ford Taurus. I bought it for $100 and drove it into the ground. It's the car I drove before I bought my current car, and I loved it.
Here's my old Taurus:

This will be fun.
