Ever since Ford came out with the Contour, I wanted one. Long story short, in 2002 a lady ran a stop sign and totalled my '88 Tbird. She did me a favor as it had 256,000 miles on it and I was just waiting for the tranny to go out. I decided I had to have a Contour as her insurance gave me $2200 for that old Tbird (I kept it lookin' good). Found my '99, figured I wouldn't get it for what I could afford.....but did! Shortly after, I, like others, Googled Ford Contour and found this site. Since I always do the majority of the maintenance on my cars, I joined her because it seemed like a great site with loads of good information about these cars. It was and still is. I've learned a lot here.

Ive owned 3 fords so far, 1 a 87 thunderbird turbo crap, a friggin lemon with no flavor, twas my 1st car I was 16 and saved up plopped all my 4k CASH on it. Before Greddy, HKS and all that [censored] was popular back in 1996 (or slightly affordable) Took a [censored] on me after 2 years and I sold it for 1,000. Second car was a white state patrol notchback mustang 5.0. I got my licence suspended for owning that bad boy, I had it painted Land Rover Emerald Green with lil 13" rims that would smoke tires like none other. Lil mexican thing with pokin rims, that stang was HOT before the term "mexican" applied. Blew the head gaskets on that one lol. Ahh what a joy that was with chopped off mufflers. I said to my self, NEVER FORD EVER AGAIN! NO FORDS UGGGGH.....then I was flicking issue after issue of auto traders, I could become a used car salesman after the knowlege I gained after purchasing 11 copys 2 months of head shaking "thats not worth it" horror,Honda's Toyota supra's, Trucks with crazy ridiculous prices. oh then....the dream from 1995 came true, I was a junior in high school when I seen pics of this CSVT. Man, if I could only have this car. This car was hot before ground effects, body kits, big rice spoilers..... STOCK! i seen it and couldnt pass it up, 4 g's later I felt I was at home. Till the lil [censored] needed a clutch HOLY [censored] ARE YOU FOR REAL! I still hate fords, but I still drive one. A summer hasnt passed when on a given day I didnt get 2 offers for it! Thanks for letting me bore you. The question still stands, Is this Contour gonna go up in price or depreciate, only time will tell. The Blue interior makes me wanna grab Armor All every day I have an extra minute. I love this car.

I joined because, well, first of all when I saw this website I thought to myself "what in the hell, there are Contour fans out there, I thought these cars were forgotten about", but, I was wrong indeed, and now I know there are other addicts out there and this website feels like home in the respect that others take care of their contours just as well as I do.

I had my csvt for about three years prior to finding this site. It's kind of funny, my friend who is a die hard GM fan and pretty much despises ford told me about the site. I joined up after reading a bunch of repair and tech stuff. This site is so packed with info it's been a valuable tool for the contour. I was using a haynes manual, but this site is better.

I joined the forum but it took me over a year for my first post. I was a long time lurker. Then one day it hit me and I posted pics of my ride.
