What to do?
Sell the SVT and buy turbo'd car
3L and maybe turbo the SVT
Keep the SVT as is

keep it.

SVT's are becoming less and less common and hopefully someday will be something worth value

I'm kind of facing the same thing.
Keep it as is for a DD, save some cash, then decide what to get as a "fun car".

Recently I have been seriously considering selling mine too, but then my rear subframe broke. I couldnt resist the urge to mod the hell out of the rear suspension, so now I guess Im going to keep it for a while. Meh, we'll see. Shes probably got another year in her for me AFAIC.

I have decided that Im going to stop being such a puss with it and finally start to track/autox with it.

If your SVT is running in 15-20 years and has less than 50,000 miles, then maybe, but I wouldn't bet on it.

If you want something that is fast then get something that can actually put the power down to the ground.

Right, if I sell the SVT... I have a pretty good idea of what will be next. And NO, it won't be an evo/ sti.


Also, I'd like to know what people are voting for the second option?

Show me WTF I told anyone to make a decision for me? I'm not asking for decision, I'm seeing how others feel as well. If that was supposed to be a joke, then how about you put a smilie at the end.

I see this mentioned quite a bit. I think it's a mistake for its possible collectors status to be a factor in purchasing a SVT Contour.

A $10k car (what you can find a nice SVT for) is probably not worth the cost of storing and maintaining for 20 years out of hope that it will one day be worth more. Merely owning a car generates overhead that over 20 years will negate its possible appreciation.

I'm not saying nobody should collect and maintain SVT Contours for 20+ years, but it should be out of the love of the vehicle, not it's unlikely status as a collector's item.
