OK, earlier today we took the time machine back to see the introduction of the Ford Taurus SHO. Now, we fast-forward to the present day, where devious youths find a forlorn, decrepit, and long-junked first-gen SHO much like the one in this morning's post and use a track hoe to complete the car's transition to the automotive afterlife. During the process, you'll note that the SHO's distinctive-looking Yamaha is still sitting in the engine bay, its 220 horses having gone to the glue factory long ago. They won't outrun fate today.

Only two words can accurately describe this contest between the SHO and heavy machinery: Advantage, Komatsu.

John's got one more bit of SHO fun in store for you later tonight, so be sure to check back.
