  • SVT owner

    Hi all. Used to be a member here back in early 2000’s. Had a green 95 GL V6 5 spd, green 95 Zetec and black 98 Mystique Sport back in the day.

    in 2015 bought an SVT, had it for a month and sold it. Bought it back in April of this year. 1998 T-Red #6522. Been a rolling restoration project.

            Thanks. The original owner did most of the modifications around 2000 after he purchased the car after leasing it for 2 years. I have a huge binder full of the car’s entire history from day one. The original owner had it until I believe 2014, when I bought it from who I think was his nephew who had bought it from him and then was never able to register it as he got a DUI and sold the car to me to pay for his lawyer.

            I ended up selling the car to the next owner who had it for 3 years and daily drove it, which clocked up most of the miles on it. He then sold it to a guy who put a clutch in it and then it never ran right so he parked it for 2 years and then sold it to an unsuspecting kid this spring who got in over his head with it and I happened to see it the day he listed it and I said “I don’t care what’s wrong with it, I just want my old SVT back!” Drove 2 hours to go pick it up and limped it home with huge vacuum leaks, misfire and a bent wheel. Got it home and had it running like new in under an hour. She’s still healthy and runs great. I only drive it on weekends, the occasional evening cruise and maybe to work on a Friday when it’s nice out. It lives a pampered life in the garage getting the love it deserves.
