This is the last Ford that I owned. A 1997 Contour, with the 2.5-liter V6 engine. I often said of it that it was, at once, the best car and the worst car that I ever owned. It's predecessor was a 1996 Mercury Mystique, with the 2-liter I4 engine. The Mystique was one of the most reliable and trouble-free cars I have ever owned, and when it was finally totaled, after one rear-end-collision too many, I figured I couldn't go wrong with another Contour/Mystique.

I was wrong. This Contour proved to be one of the least reliable cars I've ever owned, and one of the most expensive to keep in running condition. More so, I think, than my Falcon, but without any of the charms and attachments that made the Falcon worth it. It was, however, the most powerful car that I have ever owned (until I get my Bronco, which will be almost twice as powerful), and the highest-performance car that I've ever owned. It was a very nice car, when it ran.

I have a thing for Fords. Current stable. Bronco arrives this Friday!

The f250 will probably go in the next few months.

I grew up in this, sold it in 2018 after 37 years. It had a 300 I-6 with manual transmission.

Absoluley loved the Crown Vic. Specifically the Interceptor. I took that car beyond what any 4 door passenger car should have gone. I didn't technically own it so someone else was paying for my limited f ups. I have so many stories about how great that car was but considering my employment I shouldn't share too much!!!!!! (My time in that car was fucking awesome)

This was my first “car”!
Bought from a gas station in ‘71, it had the Loony Tunes Roadrunner on the side. They painted out the Sunoco sign, I said leave the Roadrunner.
My landlady said “why is there a chicken on your truck?”

Okay older cops tell me you're favorite Interceptor stories. Seriously you could run it abuse and love it.

I love that green so much!

When I have to repaint my Bronco in 10-20 years, THAT is the color I want (assuming I get my Bronco by then).

On Topic:

Closing in on year 18 on waiting to get a new 2-door Bronco...
