Hello all, long time lurker, but just finally decided to make an account.
First off, I drank the Aurora kool aid young. When I was in the first grade (December 2004), my parents traded in our 1995 Mercury Villager for this black/grey interior 2001 4.0. To young me, this car was like a spaceship, with how the dash was wrapped around the driver, and it just was beautiful. I had never seen anything like it before. Flash forward to June 2007, when it was traded in on a...Ford Focus. To young me, this was almost criminal. But, since I really didn't have much say in the matter, I just went with it. Now it's July 2018, and I am looking at Craigslist, and I come across this ad for a 2003 Aurora. I looked at the only picture it had, and by the badge on the side, the color, and the wheels, I could see it was a Final 500. Move forward a couple of weeks and it is still sitting for sale. So I went a looked at it, and struck a deal with the owner. I paid $650 for the car, and I couldn't be more happier, even though it does need some work.
I'll post pictures if people would like to see the car.
