finally almost done so i couldn't resist
yeah it's friggin low
not bad for a contour?
snapped that photo yesterday at my grandmas, detail the TL from time to time, love that car
just intake.. they don't respond highly to mods, but i may turbo it next summer and get a lsd if i have the cash
Clean! I like.
nice but the front bumper kills it. maybe switch to something a little less flamboyant.
The lip is a bit much, but the car looks good overall.
I miss my Contour.
I loved that car.
I saw the pics on CEG
it's ridiculous but that's why i like it
you get the idea
plus it comes off in minutes, only held on by two bolts.
that bottom picture looks much better
Car looks awesome, even though im not a big ford fan the svt contour has always been one of my favorite looking sedans.
Nice. CEG crew :holla:
is that just a rebadged mondeo for US market?
Yes. It and the Mercury Mystique were rebadged Mondeos. They replaced the Tempo & Topaz, which hadn't had a major redesign in 10 years, though they were 'reskinned' and interiors updated in '88.
The Ford Tempo & Mercury Topaz required much reworking to meet impending safety standards. As the platform was aging and performance was subpar, it was cheaper to adapt the Mondeo as a 1995 model for the US market than to totally redesign the Tempo/Topaz.
I think it's very clean. GJ.
friggin rattle can job.. the right sideskirt and right side of the lip paint is bubbling under the clearcoat.
i'll probably mold the jackpoint covers in the sideskirts next spring so those will get repainted anyway. damn
will probably get flamed, but i put eyelids on to see what they look like
i'm still undecided, might sell them, but they're on for now.
looks better without the eyelids..
i kinda thought that too, been getting mixed opinions, i know lots dont like eyelids in general, no matter what car
i'll probably take them off when i take the lip off in winter and just sell them
How fast is it?
slow, 200hp 3100 lbs.
i've thought about turboing.. but the transmission is weaksauce so i would need to upgrade to an lsd and the money just gets to be too much on a $6000 car
You should check out BrApple's thread on CEG. Holy shit that car is a beast.
he didnt turbo it did he? his se is hot im on there 24/7
Oh, it's turbo'd. The New England section has a huge thread on it w/some pics.
is it auto or manual?
and 200hp from a small engine, or a larger, high torque engine?
