I love this car. Even more than O.G. Fred’s ’87. Why? Because it’s all business:
- The fake scoop is for air cleaner clearance. It gets enough air through the gaping, no-style nose hole.
- The fake vents are stupid. But, they were stupid in 1979. Why spend money to fix something that ain’t broke? Spend it on better shocks, better brakes – all the upgrades over the ’83-84s
- The Fairmont dash is too ugly to be anything except a functional piece.
- Speaking of fake – no fake brake cooling. The ’87s looked cool, like it took most of the SVO’s best features and ran with it, but there was a lot of style that lacked substance, like the rear skirt that was more of an air brake than ground effects.
So no offense, but this is better.
