    SVT Probe

    Some rice kid tried to race me today in a probe. It was an "svt" probe. I don't even think they ever made them?!?!

    I was just driving around, seeing if I liked the tire pressure I had in my summer tires so I didn't waste my time.

    Don't think there was a SVT Probe. Contour, Focus, Mustang and the F-150 are the only ones I can think of.

    Never made an SVT probe (I know because Im a registered SVT owner, and have access to records ) I've also seen SVT T-birds, Rangers, Crown Vics and Tauruses

    People just stick the badges on like nothing...

    SVT has made mustangs, lightnings, contours, and focuses (foci?)

    I think people get the idea that since they have added whatever upgrade to their car it must be better than it was and deserves a new name/badging. The "SVT Taurus" of course never existed, but the SHO Taurus did. Ford actually put a few SHO engines in the Ranger back in 89. I saw it in Car & Driver article I believe, and only a few were made. The Probe GT of course was the performance model Probe. Has anyone ever seen an SVT Escort? That would be good for a few laughs.

    I saw a Saleen Focus once, this was of course before Saleen actually did a focus though.

    Yeah, I saw one of those in my area, and I was actually pulling on him in my pretty much stock WRX. Maybe the STi stickers cause a loss of power?

    at least some of them have sti parts on the car. i had sti motor mounts, tranny mount, grill, hoodscoop, and shifter when i put sti on my wrx. can you even buy svt parts for a probe?

    are you sure it was not a type R probe too, or do we only have those around here!!!

    i saw a type Type R 99+ GT mustang the other day. had huge saleen wing, with altezzas.

    what a waste of muscle. ive also seen a couple GC8 imprezas with wrx badges. i am just going to start following these people and ripping their badges off.
    i checked to see if he was turbo(FMI) but i didnt see one, and there was no hood scoop. if it was a turbo then i would repect it enough to not care
    Just call me Clark Kent
