    I'm one of the happiest guys you would know. But reading this thread was a waste of 10 minutes of my life that I will never get back.

    I've known turboSHO for awhile now. He's on a couple other forums I am on as well. The guy is 110% legit. Everything I have ever asked of him he has delivered and has never given me the run around. He said he had the video in multiple qualities but he didn't have a host for it because of it's size.

    BTW here's a link to the video

    Holy shits! I was considering an SHO 5 speed as a second car, but my Dad told me to stay away and stick with the '95-'96 Maxima 5 speed.

    Nice SHO
    But pleaze, paint that hood and trunk before posting any images on here again.

    Who volunteers their V to take down the SHO?

    I kind of agree with that. I mean i would LOVE to have a V, though they dont get me "wet".

    That SHO is just insane,and the perfect sleeper.

    Edit: I'd take the V. The Pus*y Factor is just too high with a V. No broad is gonna want to ride around in a heavily modded 1990 SHO. Well at least not any normal girl...

    Correct me If I'm wrong, but I thought the SHO only came with a 5 speed in 95' with limited production....everything else was an auto.

    The SHO was introduced in '89...until I believe 1993, it was only the 5 speed manual, then in 93 they introduced the auto with it, and by the time it was redesigned in '97 it was only automatic.

    The V is great and all, but the SHO is cool to me because it was "just a Taurus"...it just started off as your typical family sedan, nothin' glamorous, but after they got done with it, it was the most performance oriented american sedan at the time, just like the V is now. Plus, I'm a sucker for hi-po DOHC engines in sedate looking sedans (why I like the Maxima too)

    The only thing I can correct you on is the Gen III started in '96. Yes, auto only from there to '99.

    And I have to say, while the thrust of the V is awesome, that Yamaha revved like no other. Every time I drove that car, I had to hit redline.

    Jim, since you're the resident SHO guy, correct me if I'm wrong but the V8 SHO was never as fast as the V-6 ones, especially from a stop, but they were almost as quick on the highway.

    True. The V6 gets the jump off the line but on the highway, it's pretty even.

    this is funny, I was just asking Jim in another thread if he was a sho guy, and out of the past, here is this thread. Funny.

    I almost bought an early 90's SHO (91 or 92? dont remember now) back in 1996. I went with a new 97 Maxima instead. I loved that Maxima, never should have gotten rid of it. But to this day, I am sad I never had opportunity to own an SHO. Even if it was a Yamaha engine, that was still a cutting edge American car. Short of a Vette, Trans-Am, Mustang, Porsche or Ferrari (all muscle-cars and exotics you notice) there was nothing that could out-run it.

    I remember GM tried to compete with the Z34, and Chrysler with the Plymouth Duster, both were total jokes that fell apart while you were trying to drive them.

    Dodge had the Dodge Spirit R/T which was another hell of a sleeper
