Default The Ford windstar...

Im going to post this even though I lost. I pull up next to my friend and say to the lamp up there. He takes off, Then I go, Im thinking "oh Ill catch up". Nope dead even till the hill. So I guess the perfect performance match to my 2000 monte carlo ss is a 2003 Ford Windstar. Im kind of dissapointed.

Minivans are surprisingly torquey for obvious reasons.

Hi Brock,
I admire your honesty 4-$ure. I think I would be tuning
`up, and trying again
I hope the below review gives youalittle consolation
knowing that the Windstar is quick. [X(]
`Brock, try him again from a start. We look forward
to your future updates & wins : )
Thanks 4 having the stones 2 post....& for telling it
like it happened.

2003 Ford Windstar (continued)
Driving Impressions





With its big V6, the Windstar is one of the quickest minivans available. It delivers strong acceleration, and has plenty of power for safe passing even with a full load of passengers. For the most part, the Windstar's powertrain performs smoothly. The V6 sounds raucous at high rpm, however, and the transmission shifts abruptly at times.

mod`s Brock, thanks again for your honesty. It is
refreshing 4-Sure. Mike, `if you find a clean Windstar
