  • 10 years!

    This is the end of my 10th year with my '95 contour. I can't believe how much time has gone by and how much has happened. 8 years on CEG too.

    Thanks to you guys, I have held onto the car over all these years and this has been a big part of my life.

    I won't get into too much detail because it is hard to sum up 10 years in one post, but I went through some photos and scanned them that you guys have never seen before.

    I will also add pics from my other computer when I can get to it.

    Thank you, and enjoy!


    Stock form:
    soon



    Some of my "mods", what was I thinking?!






    Stock motor, air intake, yellow wires, and custom grill, haha:



    Ground controls, stock struts, side markers, mondeo mirrors, 16" Enkei RS6, painted calipers, fart can:



    15HP worth of stickers!

    Now, lets make it look fast! Ebay SVT trunk lid and rear bumper, yay.




    Mark Knox (Y2KSVT) SVT exhaust - I picked it up 13hr round trip in a snow storm. I couldn't find one local back then.




    Need mesh and skirts too!





    Interior is showing wear - lets get some SVT seats and new black carpet! Woo Hoo!

        Then, nearing the end with some motor issues...... I saved it. 3L, built trans, Baer 13" brakes, took out the purple interior, headers, powder coated










        After I got the car finshed I had an itch to make something that no one has done before......

                      this thread makes me :D
                      I strongly abide by the motto, "Safety third."

                      I thought what I'd do was, I'd pretend I was one of those deaf-mutes.

                          Well in the almost 4 years i've been on here, I have seen you do a lot of that! The car has come a long way, especially from the riced-out muffler and your "I just skinned barney for this" interior! As always, great work, Joe.

                              Great transition. The car just keeps getting better with age. And it's nice to see a pre98 look so good. Excellent job Joe!
