Talk about time capsules. 22,233 miles. No kidding truly amazing condition ... The car currently has a single exhaust and steel wheels with hubcaps.



I thought it will be equipped with brand new ST200 wheels with Z rated Japanese 17" tires?



Ha ha! Hi Deewen, how are you doing?

Yes that was my original plan, but now I think those wheels and tires will look mighty fine on my 99 tropic green SVT daily driver.

Do you have the BAT kit installed?

You know, those ST200 wheels really would look great on the 96. Maybe I should sell it with them installed… Or at least make it an option. If I do that I should also hang my spare SVT exhaust on it… and install my spare set of SVT rotors, calipers and brackets and… Oh man, I’m right back where I started!

Gotta watch that, see what it goes for!

I would have to agree. Not a collector's item. My first experience with one was as a rental car.

I am doing fine. Thank you.

I think that will be a better plan. I didn't measure the weight of the ST200 wheels, but from some other posts I believe they are lighter than most 17" wheels, including FSVT's. So it will be really good on your daily driver.

Not yet. One reason is I was really busy, the other reason is my installer was really busy ( [cough] Scott, are you reading this ? [/cough])

Unless you get another $1K more otherwise I don't think that will make your effort worthwhile. Maybe you can list a base price with them as option so you can get fair value from them. Well, just my $0.02.

When you have your AER done, I hope I can come and visit your 12AC home and drool all the way back home.

A rental Contour SVT? That would be fun for the right renter (obviously not you)!
No offense intended, but you're wrong about this. The Contour SVT is already a collector car. An inexpensive collector car to be sure, but collector car nonetheless.

You can argue all day if the SVTC is a collectors car or not. I personally think it will be. But it comes down to a niche market. People like us that know about the car will have a special place for it in our hearts. People who dont know will not. Its like the SHO. People who know about them think they are a collectors car. If you like it that is all that matters.

isn't the contour the 2nd most rare SVT vehicle only to the cobra R? i'll bet that will mean something further down the road...
