    I took pictures of this wagon at the Ty-Rods Old Timers Reunion some years ago. I've seen these conversions done on Thunderbirds and most of them are really horrible. This one on a Taurus wagon seems to be just the opposite(to me anyway).
    I like the way everything seems to fit and the use of the tail light windsplits and the license plate frame/liftgate handle.The color also makes it for me.
    But like everything in this world not everyone has the same likes and dislikes. So what do YOU think?
    Do you like it or not? If so what do/don't you like about it and why.Just for fun. 1950FordTaurus1.jpg 1950FordTaurus2.jpg

    I appreciate the work put into it, but I dislike the car as a whole. Same as the TBirds you mention and the C1 conversion I've seen on C5 vettes. They just look out of proportion. Even though the panels line up the styles dont. The offset of FWD wheels and the ride height are huge blocks in completing the desired look. And the fact that the conversion cost is probably quadruple what the base car is worth is just a nail in the coffin. Hard pass for me.

    Same here, as far as appreciating the amount of work put into it. I also appreciate the artist's sense of humor. The car affests me in a humorous manner. If the donor car wasn't restorable, then I find this creation to be fully in Ordnung and worthy of a trophy in its own class

    Looks like quality work, but scanning from decent "old car" front to "newer car" back is a little hard on my eyes. Kind of like telling a good joke, then ending with the wrong punch line.

    In a word........no.

    But I like it better than the '50 Ford nose on the '90 Thunderbird.
