The Ford Taurus SHO was an undeniably good car, so it’s no surprise that Conan O’Brien has kept his 1992 Ford Taurus SHO around for so long, even if he still likes to make fun of it on segments for Conan.
Today is President’s Day which marks the birthday of both George Washington and Abraham Lincoln. I’m honoring our nation’s past leaders in the only way I know how, blogging about cars on the internet.Everyone knows that George Washington probably would have driven a big American SUV or muscle car.
