Talking Finally made it into the world of SVT!

Well as some or most know the 04 will be up for sale soon. So I needed a reliable DD to replace it. I found this score at a local nissan dealer ship.

2000 Ford Contour SVT
86k miles!

























Thing is quick! Handles sooooooo nice too!

Those are quick little cars.


Do you want to trade lower valances on your truck before you sell it?

Having to take to much time off work to take care of my parents. So I'm going to sell it and it'll save me close to 500 a month.

I have had way to many friends that have owned those. everything from 100% stock to turboed or supercharged they where our most bought car in my graduating class.


few fyi's if the water pump isnt already replaced with a steel one do it now. next your ranging on the typical motor spin bearings problem right around 100k its HIGHLY common for that motor. keep a close close eye on the oil for bearing metal. or find a donor motor to stash away.


dash recall already been done on it? doesnt matter now tho recall is over it just looks horrible if it wasnt done
