Everyone loves a fresh round of mods.
Few things put a smile on my face like amassing a pile of hi-po parts and digging deep into a round of mods. While it can be plenty of fun to install one modification at a time, there’s nothing like blowing a car apart and essentially putting a new car back together thanks to a bunch of shiny new goodies. It would seem that SVTP Member SVT_Troy (“Troy”) feels the same way, and his Terminator is all the more better for it.
When you really have to get the groceries.
Once you’ve owned a Terminator you’ll never be the same man again. No matter what car you get next you’re always going to be longing for the raw-untamed fury that was SVT’s final Cobra (at least for the time being). So what happens when you have to do the responsible thing and buy a new ride that’s a little more family friendly than a Snake Car? Well if you’re long-time SVTP Member CobraBob (“Bob Arthur”) you turn to the 2.7L Twin-Turbo Ford Edge Sport.
SVT Power Play
Clean SN-95 with dead motor rescued.
Just ask anyone who has talked future classics with me over a couple of beers, and they will tell you that I long believed that SN-95s will be the next popular project car. For past 10 years or so the venerable Fox-Body has dominated the ground-up Mustang build market. Alas, clean project Foxes are getting harder to find and more expensive to purchase if you do happen to luck-up on one. However, if we skip one Mustang model ahead; clean SN-95 Mustangs (even SVT Cobras) can be had at bargain prices.
Kid’s love for SVT runs deep.
If you’re a ‘car guy’ now, chances are you were a ‘car kid’ once-upon-a-time. You probably even remember a significant car in your early life that helped shape your current automotive fashion. Chances are it was your Dad’s, Grandfather’s, Uncle’s, or some other family-member’s pride and joy. Well for SVTP Member KilledbyKenne (”Justin’s”) 4-year old son Lukas, dad certainly had the right car to kick off an automotive addiction.

The secrets behind auto financing.
Every dealership has a finance department; some are made up of a single individual, while others have a director or directors with several producers under each. Have you ever wondered why you are more or less herded to their office even if you are stroking a check for your newer vehicle?
