  • First time official Contour owner! (My ex-girlfriend had one years ago)

    Hi all! Up here in the PNW. Just picked up a clean 98 Contour the other day. 153k miles. Literally got it due to being a manual. After a few days of ownership I see a couple small DIY things to fix (temp gauge, valve cover leak, and finding a parking brake boot) but I think I got a deal at $1200 after tax and license. I will say it handles way better than most FWD cars; I've worked in the car business for almost 17 years and this was the first non-SVT Contour I've seen.
    Been a car guy my whole life; mostly RWD (Miss my Marauders) but this fills the necessity at this point in my life.

    Looking forward to being on here! to help make my Contour ownership easy, and dare I say fun? Pics are from the day after I bought it and cleaned it up...the monroney still in the glove box was a nice surprise.

      Updated cup holder? So my coffee doesn't spill like it did this morning? Nothing like an emergency shampoo spray in a can and a self-serve vacuum first thing in the morning
