    Old Tauruses (Tauri?) are the perfect cheap set of wheels for people like me that are just looking for reliable transportation. Completely disposable.

    You can buy them for peanuts, they’re reliable, they can haul an incredible amount of crap, they get decent gas mileage, and scrap yards are full of them for cheap parts.

    I bought a city-owned Taurus with 180K for $500 and drove it on a 2000 mile trip to California and back – it didn’t miss a beat. The a/c didn’t work anymore, but the cruise control did, so it was a reasonably comfortable ride.

    The trick is not to fall in love with them – actually not very hard with the Taurus. When the transmission goes south, or anything else major, you say good-bye.

    Lather. Rinse. Repeat.
