A Contour in name only....

1998 Ford Contour SVT 4dr Sedan
I have owed my SVT for 4+ years.
Despite (stupidly) overpaying for the
car (sleazy, high-pressure dealer) I
have thouroughly enjoyed it. It has
enough power to press and still
looks good enough to turn heads 5
years later. Handeling is superb.
There have been a few minor
problems with the moonroof and
driver seat, but other than that the car
has been trouble free. Snow tires
are necessary in the winter.
The engine is an excellent peice of
engineering and sounds sweet...The
exterior styling is sharp and it is a
pleasure to drive...Starts the 1st time,
every time...even at 75k
Blue leather & Interior?!? Roof racks
do not fit well at all. Difficult to get to
the oil filter w/out making a mess.
