I want one. :/

The last one I saw was for sale locally, and was the same color and year as this one. It even had a five speed....but it was really damn rough, especially the interior.

My friend bought this car more or less on a whim back in March. I found it on craigslist and it looked near mint in the two photos. We went up to a rural shopping center near Sacramento to look at the car. Young guy shows up in a filthy, dusty, water-spotted green Taurus that sounds like a rally car. Exhaust was busted in two places, slight rear bumper pucker and a lot of chips and scratches and some dents. Front seat leather was torn and a few of the power seat functions didn't work, but nearly everything else functioned. Price was $1400. It was a bit rough but my friend wanted a green SHO and nobody else was selling one, so this was it.

#2, This one is an automatic which shifts solid and the engine runs smoothly for having 162k miles as of today. Since purchase, my friend and I have had to replace the catalytic converters, EGR pressure feedback sensor and MAF sensor in order to pass smog and get it plated. The car still has a small oil leak underneath and also leaks oil at the crank. Suspension components will have to be replaced all around. One issue we didn't see when inspecting the car before purchase was that the radiator and oil cooler were crooked at the bottom. The car was so dirty I didn't realize that the shiny paint on the front hood and bumper were almost new. It's an insurance paint job from a past fender bender that occurred in early 2016. The car came from the estate of an old man who once owned four SHOs. The moonroof seal leaks and there is a fair amount of wind noise from the exterior weather seals. My friend treated it to a new set of Pirelli P7s to replace the ancient Yokohama Geolandars.

#3, So far I think the car has about $3000 or less invested in it including purchase price, tires, exhaust work, etc. It's a work in progress and there are still many small to moderate things (struts, droning fuel pump, half-functioning OEM stereo) to rectify. The car just came off of a 500+ mile road trip to Reno and back and had no new mechanical problems that I observed.

#5, Those shots under the bridge give me major San Francisco Rush flashbacks.

#6, That was the first "racing" game where I would actually go slowly, trying to discover all the little goodies the developers hid in there...

SF Rush was also the only game cabinet that gave you a clutch.... IIRC

Oh, and put some generic no-state-specific plate on it, and clear the background cars in the Fort Point pic and you could tell me that was a vintage magazine ad for the SHO and I'd believe it. Excellent work.

#6, I have a major problem with the game cover art.

It's the corner of Montgomery and Green Streets, and the Powell & Market cable car line is half a mile away from there.

#11, You're expecting geographic accuracy in a mid '90s arcade racer?

#12, Both those cars are about to crash into a concrete wall!

And I've played that game, I know what happens when you crash. :P

#12, Even movies can't do geography right. The police chase in Unstoppable is going past the Sunset West diner here in town, Ned makes one left turn, and suddenly, he's in Port Allegheny outside PIttsburgh.... explain THAT! :)

#15, Which was played by Belaire, Ohio. :)

Though, to be fair, it was the southeast part along the WVA border that really does look like PA
