    There was some fellow in the northwest that had extensively modified a Gen II green Taurus GL. Anyone recall the name and/or have any contact info for him?

    Did he successfully sell the car?

    No rush - zak

    Yes, grailgolf. Don't buy it, that guy is a notorious liar and the car isn't that great. Were you that guy a little while back who wanted to buy it despite everyone's comments?

    Search "grailgolf" on tcca, and look at the Mad Taurus GL thread.

    The sickness is unreal. The ending posts are best, but read them in order... ;)

    You can search for grailgolf on tcca and read some drivel, specifically the "Boss 3.0" build thread- classic reading- but all of his pics have disappeared, and he's MIA. General consensus- complete scammer with a seafoam green Taurus GL with rims, a wing, and lots of painted parts. He's done it with other cars too.

    Negative Batman, Joseph Lucetti (grailgolf) is all over ebay, craigslist, and other classifieds desperately trying to sell that GL. In fact, I believe that's where zak originally saw his ad, or maybe it was ebay.

    I think he was referring to the pictures on TCCA, and I know for a fact that the last time it was listed on eBay was last summer because I had inquired about it......

    Actually I just wondered if he had thrown in the towel yet and decided to part it out.

    Thanks for the info, if I find his current Craigslist ad on Crazedlist I will drop him a note, did not see it on there for awhile.

    No, I would never even consider buying such a car, I already paid $20 K for my '95 SHO when it was brand new on the dealer lot (including taxes and tags, makes the '10 seem a little high).

    lol. for $25k I think you could find a way to fit an LS3 in there. :rofl:

    and where is the $25k, for forged pistons, but no turbo? :shrug:

    edit: I don't really know why I posted about this, not worth time or questions. It's just that dumb...

    I should have bought the car to drop a stock SHO motor in it... It'd likely be faster for like $400 and some work.
