  1. I was thinking today that

    The SVT F150 is called the lightning and the SVT Mustang is called the cobra. So why didn't the focus or countour get a second name??

    just curious
     
  2. thats a good question
     
  3. Becuz they suck? :shrug:
     
  4. :lol: :lol: :lol:
     
  5. I would have to agree :rlaugh:
     

  6. :bs: :bs:

    not the countour i drove. granted it was no Mustang but it was torquie as hell and cornered way better than my Vert.
     
  7. all the good names were taken, what could you call them?

    I guess the Ford Focus Sloth and the Contour Cricket might work :shrug:
     
  8. I agree...the SVT Focus and Contours were some of the best handling cars that Ford ever built...and they weren't that slow for V6's and I4's...
     
  9. SVT In-Focus :shrug:

    i don't know.
     
  10. Probably the cost of getting a good name was too much, considering they Ford didn't care too much about those cars.

    SVT Mustang Cobra
    SVT F-150 Lightning
    SVT Contour Crusher/Cornflakes
    SVT Focus Mongoose/Ankle Biter
