That's why I like them. But after riding in my friend's LS1 Camaro, my thoughts have kinda changed. On the dyno it made 316 RWHP with only a Flowmaster muffler and K&N filter element.

Rebadging the Five Hundred probably won't bring up sales much except for the stupid people that don't know it's a Five Hundred in disguise... The Focus is a good selling car as well, but it's had it's problems. My dad was a Ford Technician (not anymore though) and said that Focuses all came in with the same problem (forgot what it was...) I wouldn't mind having a Focus myself, but I don't know what my dad would say about that. I decided on an Escort Zx2 and he hasn't said not to.

Kind of late but here's my car.




'99 Toyota Solara

She's my baby, clocks at 140, but I'll probably never get to know what that feels like. I really don't want to, I just like being able to say that.

The Focus owns if you get an 03-up. Especially SVT, mmm...

I've had problems with alternators and transmission, I think those were the only two biggies. About $650 total in those repairs.

Ooh, I dunno on that one.

Just curious though, is the Contour a 2.0 Zetec or a 2.5 Duratec V6?
I have tired working on my friend's V6 and it's just impossible.
