Ford is closing down production of its Taurus model. When the 1999 model came out, I was finishing college, and I thought it looked neat. I actually thought I might have liked to own and drive one. I had less knowledge about cars back then as I do now, which isn’t saying much.
My girlfriend at the time said the new 1999 Taurus looked like a “space egg.” I don’t know what a space egg is, but I suppose she had a point.
So long, Ford Space Egg. You won’t be missed.
By the way, I ended up with a 1986 Toyota Celica when I left college.
