The story of V8SHO is a story of unrequited love, the idealization that if only Ford knew they would want to do the right thing and help us.
When the obvious truth is they knew very early on and worked hard not to know, shredding documents had a well worn pattern of evading responsibility in long series of mishaps where they avoided & evaded responsibility.
I believe in capitalism and I believe in democracy and I believe in the rule of law. I have also come to understand why Ford Motor Company could be exhibit "A" in why my faith in such systems could be misplaced.
Blessings on Blessings.

Exactly - I would have been a life-time Ford owner had they "manned-up" and fixed the cams. I've owner three tauruses - a vulcan, a duratech and a SHO. I wanted a SHO ever since my mom got a loaner Red Gen II back in '92 while the vulcan was in for repairs. Considering I will probably get a new car every 5-7 years, and if I live the average life span, barring ill-fate (what is it now? 75-years?), they probably screwed themselves out of 7-10 sales (probably more considering, I would have bought some for my kids). Is that worth the $500 investment they'd have to make to repair the cams? I will never buy another ford in my life, but I still love my SHO enough to spend my weekends working and cash to get her back up and running.
Here, here. Couldn't have said it better myself.
