    • I liked my SVT Contour. I traded it in for a new 01 Bullitt Mustang. Later found out someone at the dealership blew the engine a week after I traded it.

  • LFA was released to dealers on January 24, 2011, not in 2012. Nearly all the dates in this video are 100% wrong too. SMH. Contour was out in '94, SVT was shown in late 1996 and went on sale by February 1997. It had a 3 year run, not 2 years. Focus RS was out earlier than 2017, Subaru Baja was announced in 2001-02, and Gen 5 Viper was out in 2012. This video fails to even touch on why the Viper failed. It was a manual only vehicle, against much better automatics, unlike the original.

  • You should've added the KIA Borrego as an honorable mention. It was a nice looking SUV that came with a V8. It was sort of like a cheaper Touareg. The only problem was 1) it was pretty expensive for a KIA, and 2) it was released at the worst possible time. We were headlong into the Great Recession AND there was a gas crisis. Driving a new, gas guzzling SUV was way out of fashion at the time. It was killed by the socio-economic conditions of the time. KIA waited a year too long to release it. Just one year earlier, and it would've been a smash hit.

  • Best comment I ever heard about the Viper, was while waiting for my car being serviced in a megaplex dealership. The had a new black Viper Coupe in the waiting area, with the window sticker on a wood stand next to it. A middle aged woman came into the dealership and wandered over to the car looked it over then looked at the sticker and exclaimed “$86,000 ? For a DODGE!!?” Pretty much summed it up.

  • The first time I saw an Avanti, it was parked nose-in in a garage. Seeing only the tail lights as I walked by I thought the car look incredible. Squat stance, wide rear tire, and very aggressive looking. I looked it up online, saw the front and --at first-- didn't believe it was the same car. Quite the let down the front of that car is. lol

  • Every time I hear the topic of great cars that nobody buys, I think of the new Camaros. They are perhaps the best performance value ever, and still, sales have completely tanked. Maybe American muscle cars are falling out of favor among enthusiasts, or maybe something about the styling and overall design. But the performance value cannot be denied. (Clarification: earlier years of Camaro sold well but in the later / more recent years, that is when the sales tanked.) And thanks for mentioning the SS, same story there. Basically, the Camaro was a detuned Corvette with back seats and the SS was a detuned Corvette with 4 doors. Yet they did not sell. I don't understand. Thanks for the fun video.

  • Thumbs down for promoting bullshit soap. Unless they found a tree that grew this "natural" soap it's a chemical concoction that's been artificial processed. Unlike a modern soap it just doesn't work nearly as well and like all bar soaps, leave behind soap scum. Something no one using a modern body wash has to deal with cleaning. Also if you want to learn about hell read Dante's Inferno because that's pretty much were it came it's not in the bible...

  • Dealerships are the reason I do not want to buy a new car. FRS, Focus RS, '16 WRX....like I wanna impulse buy, but the having markup on top of MSRP drove me away. Imagine having MFR advertise an MSRP you like and then dealerships slap on $4000+ on shit you do not want. So I did the next best thing, buy a house to hold my older cars...or a Telsa so I do not need to be shit on by dealers.
