People buy these things thinking their getting a SVT mustang. Hate to tell you kiddo. You just bought yourself a Contour, and only made it worse by thinking it cool.

Bull. Most people who buy the non-Cobra SVT cars probably know what they're getting. Sure, the Contour may not have had that much in the way of straight-line power, but they supposedly handle well enough.

This car was built to get old people to their Bingo games. Why they came out with an SVT contour I'm not sure? Whats next? The SVT windstar? OH!!! Look at me Look at me I have a SVT, like the cobra, only not fast, and kind of silly looking.

Yeah, it's not like they've made an SVT Focus, or anything. Or for that matter, a faster Taurus before SVT even came out.

The SVT Contours admittedly weren't that huge a hit. But they were faster than the regular Contours, they looked better in many ways, and they supposedly handled better.

you don't get it, SVT contours are a degradation of the SVT name which apparently only belongs on cobras which also has name degradation going on from the original cobras.
or something I guess

#9, Because I followed it up with the mention that there was never a performance-oriented Taurus, either, which is also false--the SHO predated the formation of the SVT division. :p

#6, Well...Ford made a hi-po Windstar before they had the SVT branding to put on cars...

It was a concept called the "SHOstar"...and, incidentally, it was the first vehicle, to my recollection, to sport Altezzas (even before the Toyota Altezza/Lexus IS).

#12, Yep, thar she is. Not really THAT bad looking, except for the taillights and the roof. I like the headlights.

#12, Actually, I kind of like the front shot, but the taillamps are bad and I don't like the wheels (they look almost like "drag star" style wheels, and that's silly on a van).

#13, I don't know. It's a minivan. They're all ugly to me. I hate this color and the taillights.

I think it looks reasonably good for what it is.

Still ugly though.

#18, That would look good, except it is too low (I don't like the way that the tops of the wheels are practically tucked into the wells) and involves APC.

#19, Yeah I agree. That and the taillights.
