Cohort Sighting: Repurposed Fourth Generation Taurus


When life hands you lemons, make… a Taurus planter.  I don’t know where S. Forrest captured this picture–I’m assuming Ontario–but until these cars become scarce, the sight of it in this condition does not elicit any pain.  By the time this rather recent car rolled off the line, there was nothing at all remarkable about it.


That said, it’s too cutesy; plants or no plants, it’s a 3500 pound piece of trash taking up space.  I’m sure a lot of people appreciate its use as a repurposed object, but a traditional method of recycling would’ve been more appropriate.  Bah humbug.
