Ford Taurus, RIP

Hosted by

Americans once purchased over 400,000 Tauruses a year, but Ford says it expects to sell less than half that number in 2006--and there won't be a next year. Taurus made its debut in December, 1985. By the early 90's it had became the best-selling passenger vehicle in America. But Taurus' sales have plummeted in recent years. This week marks the end of an era as the last Ford Taurus rolls off the production line in Atlanta.
