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...





the Focus might also all right in there with the contour in terms of numbers made

Probably kind of like a Cosworth Vega. Just imagine if you bought one brand new for about 2 grand in the early '70's.

The CSVT is already becoming a collector's car of a sort - to a very niche market. I bet that SVT would not have sold for nearly that much two years ago on eBay.

Oh well it was fun watching the guy buy his car back. Why else would "Statewide" run up the price and outbid himself w/ 5 consecutive bids and increase his bid from 10,700 to 11,800 in a matter of 2 minutes?

Maybe there were "automatic bids" not shown? Otherwise, that seems strange.

You can see that gimeurbeer had a bid of 11,900 that was placed about an hour and a half before that. Statewide was probably just increasing his bid a little bit at a time until he outbid gimeurbeer. Either way, I think the seller did well but at the same time I also think it was a decent deal for the buyer too.
