    1998 Ford Contour SVT. Toreador red. It's not the greatest car in the world, but I drive around 30K miles or more a year, so it gets the job done. I'm actually selling it now for $7,000 but figured I would post it on here before I get rid of it. The transmission is perfect now. Compeltely redone 3 times :)down: ). Now it has a Torsen LSD, Centerforce clutch, Spec lightened flywheel, updated shift forks and synchros, new shift cable, etc. etc. The lighter flywheel made a very noticable differance. The only real performance mod's I have done are a K&N filter and some minor exhaust work. The vents in the hood I put in myself. People usually dislike them, but they certainly serve their purpose in keeping everything cooler under the hood. The headlights are painted to match the car. I've been debating selling it for a while. I have struts and springs ready to install but never got around to it before I decided to sell it. And a friend is selling full exhuast with headers and true duals for $1,000, which I would really like to pick up, but we'll see what happens. My best time at the track was a 15.1 @ 87mph (my stupid ass let off the gas way early...) Here are the pics:

    Never heard of him. ...don't even know how to pronounce that actually? They aren't too rare, espicially in Michigan for some reason. I'm only one of 3 people with the hood vents though, so I doubt it's too much like mine.

    I ran a 15.1 @ 79mph (I mistyped that MPH part above). Stock they're a mid-to-high 15 second car at about 88mph or so.

    I like it, nice and tidy, not to ott. We have loads of those over here in Europe, they're called Mondeos.
