    • @steven c Hell yeah, I had a "new edge" cougar in high school, they shared the 2.5 engine with the contour.. iirc the 3.0 swap came from the early 2000's Taurus. Everybody wanted that sweet looking svt intake manifold though 👌 lol

  • The main reason the Ford Focus didn't sell regardless of its performance package was it started at 42K. Why would you buy a Focus for that price its still a Focus. When you could be looking at a Mustang GT for less in the same year its a Mustang with more appeal than a Focus.

  • Guys I just bought my first reliable project car and you havent even touched on it! I bought it and was like "time to look up some donut media on it" and nothing was there! Can you please cover the Mercedes Benz SLK230?! Particularly the R170 2000 SLK230 Kompressor. Hahaha I know that's a mouthful but I have been searching for parts and have to type that in daily. It's an inline supercharged 4cylinder and the best part, it's got a beautiful 5speed manual in it! She even kinda looks like the BMW Z8 which you guys have talked about. Please!

  • I wanted a focus rs but for the price I thought it was slow and kind of boring to drive went with the type r for like 20 grand less and it's a faster car. Ford's prices for everything is out of control. The focus rs engine is also hilariously unreliable and comes with a warped block from the factory.

  • This exact topic has always fascinated me, awesome to see a video about it. A lot of these made me sad. ESPECIALLY the Chevy SS, that was the coolest subtle sleeper on the planet. A true monster grocery getter. I loved that it existed and that GM made it, I was so sad that no one understood what it was!

  • pretty sure why no one bought the viper is because: the people who can afford it don't want to be seen in a Chrysler dealership. imagine being a successful person sent your viper to the dealer for an oil change, end up sit next to a fat sweaty grand caravan owner in the waiting room. lol.

  • Price, price is always the factor. Car companies keep pumping out SUVs (because of price margins to profits). The problem with them is SUVs and their obscene costs are only really affordable to Boomers. A market that is going to shrink/disappear. They don’t have any other options which are affordable or appealing to young people. This is why the next generation of car buyers are looking at things like rideshare. They need a car, but nothing is appealing enough to own, so they will rent boring cars to do the bare minimum. Car dealers need to target vanners ( van life youth, pack your skateboards, bikes etc and girlfriend and go for a road trip) cheap coupes (rwd, below $25k, let buyers tune using a big parts catalog) etc... SUVs are about as attractive to younger buyers as the family minivan was to 90s kids.

  • The "redo" of the Viper was a massive mistake. If they had redesigned with a rear transaxle and got rid of that horrible massive tunnel next to your feet, they would have improved the car immensely and made it handle even better. But no, they just went with what they had. Kind of like if Chevy had left all the Corvettes looking like the early 70's version to this day.

  • "Sounds like a pretty nice bag of peanuts' What a stupid thing to say. That 4 door Chevy SS, had 4 doors and looked like every other 4 door sedan. That's why it didn't sell. The Ford Contour didn't sell because it only had a small under powered V6 and 4 doors. If Chevy or Ford would make Thunderbird's, Galavie's Chevell's with nice V8 like the Dodge Challenger's 485HP 6.4 Hemi maybe then they would sell.

It's all-electric range is still unmatched by many new plug-in hybrid electric vehicles. As a used vehicle it's an incredible value and I'd argue the best value used vehicle on the market today.
