Shortly after the Ford Taurus was introduced, Motor Trend Magazine declared this advanced and refreshingly original machine its "Car of the Year" for 1986. In the wake of that auspicious beginning, things have only gotten better for the Taurus. Sales of this mid-size four-door sedan and station wagon have grown to a point where the Taurus is the best-selling automobile in the world's largest car bazaar. U.S. sales of the Taurus for the 1987 model year to date stand at 180,881, over 4,000 more than its closest competitor, the Chevrolet Celebrity.

Philippe Holland's last delivery of the night Tuesday, a cheeseburger deluxe to a West Philadelphia rowhouse, was an order so small he didn't bother to carry his pizza delivery bag. His hoodie was up, his hands in his pockets, police say, as he walked back to his gold Ford Taurus, parked on 51st Street near Willows Avenue. The 20-year-old from Upper Darby had been running orders two nights a week for Slices & More for a few weeks. That was on top of another job at an airport restaurant.

The 22-year-old Germantown woman who survived a violent abduction returned home to her family Thursday, the same day her alleged kidnapper was charged in federal court with abducting her and spiriting her across state lines. And new details emerged on how authorities in three states hunted Delvin Barnes, 37, as he fled from Philadelphia with Carlesha Freeland-Gaither bound in the backseat of a used Ford Taurus whose side windows she kicked out in her struggle to escape. Federal prosecutors charged Barnes with kidnapping Freeland-Gaither and taking her to Maryland, where both were found Wednesday night in a parking lot in Jessup.

The investigators watching the sedan with the broken windows in the parking lot in Jessup, Md., on Wednesday evening saw two figures in the backseat: a man and a woman they hoped was a 22-year-old from Philadelphia who had been violently abducted three days earlier. Then the man climbed into the front seat and tried to pull away. The ATF agents closed in with guns drawn. The man surrendered without a fight. The terrified woman in the backseat gave her name: Carlesha. And with that, the three-day ordeal that stretched across state lines and galvanized police and the public came to an end, with Carlesha Freeland-Gaither injured but safe, and a wanted man with a history of violence in custody.

Carlesha Freeland-Gaither was almost home. The 22-year-old from Germantown had spent Sunday night at her godson's birthday party and going home around 9:40 p.m. on the 100 block of West Coulter Street, her family said. She had moved to the neighborhood with her boyfriend just two months before. And she was a five-minute walk from her home when, police say, someone stalked her, grabbed her, and dragged her, screaming, into a waiting car. In her struggle to break free, police said, she kicked out two windows in her assailant's car before it sped off. On Monday morning, crime-scene investigators swept auto glass from the tree-lined street where Freeland-Gaither was abducted, while her stunned family handed out fliers on the sidewalk.

I pulled the ticket-me red Viper into a parking space near the supermarket entrance, and silenced the massive V10's side exhausts. As my wife and I got out, a thirtysomething woman and her barely teenage male passenger pulled up behind us in a black Ford Taurus. "Your car is just awesome," she said through a broad smile. "I've been following you up the road and in here just so my son and I could look at it. Must be fun. " "He only has it for a week," explained my wife, who probably wishes a week had five days, given her aversion to my boy racer proclivities in sports cars with lots of horsepower - 640 in this case.
