Chris Anglin - Cam Failure #666 & #667

New 3/18/06

good morning, my name is Chris Anglin, and I own a 1996 ford Taurus Sho. It has some sort of engine failure and I have listed it on ebay go get whatever I can for it. Then a very curious member of your V8sho website instructed  me to contact you guys. Something about a class-action and the cam failure. I guess my question is does my car fall under this? can I have ford fix my car? even though my car has over 217,000 miles. and GOD only knows how many previous owners.

Feel free to call me at (del) , again my name is Chris Anglin

thank you
