Keep "them" guessing with the 1990 Ford Taurus SHO

"They" say by a certain age you fall into a certain pattern of statistics that include ownership of a typical four door sedan, like say a Ford Taurus. Ford had a surefire way to prove "them" wrong—the 1990 Ford Taurus SHO.


Complete with a standard transmission and a 220 horsepower engine the SHO made the Taurus anything but the typical four door sedan. Just when "they" thought they had you all figured out you went outside the box and got a SHO—you know, the one "they" are telling you to buy.

I love how 220hp from a 3-litre V6 was considered "Super High Output" back then. I really hate the acronym (and hate even more that people pronounce it "SHO")... i'm surprised they didn't use the SVT moniker for the latest generation, to try and build that out as the Ford performance brand.
