Forget the Tata Nano—the $2,500 car aimed at the developing world—or even the cheapest models in the U.S. market, the $9,970 Hyundai Accent and $9,990 Nissan Versa.

If you're on a shoestring budget, a used car like the 1993 Ford Taurus might be the only option.

Leave it to the sometimes-funny, always-ridiculous folks at The Onion to give the '93 Taurus the big auto-show intro it deserves.

This "car for the modern age" comes with almost everything you'd ever need (Primus tape included) in a vehicle. Well…perhaps only if you were a Seth Rogen character.

For the rest on this "innovative concept vehicle that fits the needs of all Americans," and some laughs, you should watch the video below. Major-product show rollout speeches tend to be a bit formulaic, and they nailed it.

Then, even if a new car isn't in the cards this year, you still might want to check out our coverage of the 2010 Ford Taurus, including a gallery of images, related posts, a full review, and our editors' Bottom Line.
