All remaining parts (and the car) sold for $1 new

“Just when I thought that I was out… they pull me back in”

Well... it’s not that often I am totally surprised anymore. I received an email last night followed by a very surprising (and pleasant) telephone conversation.

Seems there is a lurker on this board, someone who, completely without my knowledge, has been following my posts with great interest. Been doing it a while to, probably since my visit to his home last year.

Bottom line, I no longer own a Contour or any Contour parts. I sold the whole lot, including the car, for a dollar (and some very serious promises concerning grades and so forth).

It looks like the first car on my new lift this fall actually will be a certain low mileage (22K); super clean 1996 Ford Contour with 2.5L and ATX. Somebody is going to get an intensive introduction to just about every aspect of automotive maintenance, repair and improvement!


I’ll post some details of this, but here is a hint. Imagine being 16 years old with a fresh learner’s permit, dreaming about that first car... and finding out online that your uncle is planning to give you a car! Then watch as this uncle basically gives away a big pile of really neat modification and performance parts for that same car! The horror of it all!

I frankly don’t know if I could have stayed quiet for as long as my nephew did! He was obviously hard at work learning everything he could about Ford Contours.

The whole dollar sale thing was fun while it lasted – and three CEGers for sure would agree with that!

Nephew, I know you are reading this. Never doubt my seriousness about grades and safe driving... I will see you later in VA!

JED, I'm sure if we traced our roots back to place of family origin that we are somehow related.... Now how 'bout that BAT setup? Well congrats to the little guy anyway.

Now THAT is an excellent sale. I hope you help your nephew learn to drive it safely and well, to boot. Get him into some advanced driver training once the car's done!

Maybe when your garage is done, some of us Virginians can work in a CEG visit.

That's awesome for him. He is a sneaky sneaky little guy.

Get him on CEG for sure if he decides to mod the car later.

Congrats to him.

Thanks for the dollar daze at CEG new

Well, it has been fun! JEDs antics have brought back my mod bug... So now instead of waiting for the BAT struts, I'll have to buy a set. That'll put my FSVT brakes & header purchases on hold for a short while. This episode of cyber history has been good for CEG, certainly.

So, let's see, a modded '96 minus headers, wheels/tires, and what was that 3rd thing? Bosal exhaust system? Deal for you, young man!

Ya spread the love, thanks Jim!
