@steven c Hell yeah, I had a "new edge" cougar in high school, they shared the 2.5 engine with the contour.. iirc the 3.0 swap came from the early 2000's Taurus. Everybody wanted that sweet looking svt intake manifold though 👌 lol

This exact topic has always fascinated me, awesome to see a video about it. A lot of these made me sad. ESPECIALLY the Chevy SS, that was the coolest subtle sleeper on the planet. A true monster grocery getter. I loved that it existed and that GM made it, I was so sad that no one understood what it was!

pretty sure why no one bought the viper is because: the people who can afford it don't want to be seen in a Chrysler dealership. imagine being a successful person sent your viper to the dealer for an oil change, end up sit next to a fat sweaty grand caravan owner in the waiting room. lol.

The viper was always the muscle car you couldn’t afford but nice to look at. People want the traditional muscle car look back. All this electric and modern bs is disgusting.

Price, price is always the factor. Car companies keep pumping out SUVs (because of price margins to profits). The problem with them is SUVs and their obscene costs are only really affordable to Boomers. A market that is going to shrink/disappear. They don’t have any other options which are affordable or appealing to young people. This is why the next generation of car buyers are looking at things like rideshare. They need a car, but nothing is appealing enough to own, so they will rent boring cars to do the bare minimum. Car dealers need to target vanners ( van life youth, pack your skateboards, bikes etc and girlfriend and go for a road trip) cheap coupes (rwd, below $25k, let buyers tune using a big parts catalog) etc... SUVs are about as attractive to younger buyers as the family minivan was to 90s kids.

The "redo" of the Viper was a massive mistake. If they had redesigned with a rear transaxle and got rid of that horrible massive tunnel next to your feet, they would have improved the car immensely and made it handle even better. But no, they just went with what they had. Kind of like if Chevy had left all the Corvettes looking like the early 70's version to this day.

"Sounds like a pretty nice bag of peanuts' What a stupid thing to say. That 4 door Chevy SS, had 4 doors and looked like every other 4 door sedan. That's why it didn't sell. The Ford Contour didn't sell because it only had a small under powered V6 and 4 doors. If Chevy or Ford would make Thunderbird's, Galavie's Chevell's with nice V8 like the Dodge Challenger's 485HP 6.4 Hemi maybe then they would sell.

Viper will forever be remembered as something truly awesome. The only reason I didn't buy one, was finances. I wanted to, but it would be irresponsible if I swapped my house/utility payments for car payments. I WILL have a Viper in my life sooner or later, before I die.

Chevrolet Volt It's a great car that would have been perfect for so many people, but sadly never really took off. It's all-electric range is still unmatched by many new plug-in hybrid electric vehicles. As a used vehicle it's an incredible value and I'd argue the best value used vehicle on the market today.

The Chevy SS was built to satisfy a production requirement for the factory in Australia. IIRC, it was cheaper to make the SS and take a loss on it than it would have been to terminate the production line at the time.

The problem with the viper is no one wanted them because only 3/10 would make it home had a couple buddies at dealer ships watch people wreck them into a pole driving out of the lot. Idk about you but that would scare me from buying a 150k car

You could have included the Tucker 48. That was really a car that nobody bought. It did have innovating features though. One of those features was to be seat belts. But imagine this, the marketing department opposed them because they thought that including them would make the public believe that the car was unsafe.

I remember my dad having a black SVT Contour when I was very little. I remember sitting in the back of it when I was 7 while my dad was doing highway pulls with an old E36 and a couple of 240sx rolling with underglow. Out of all the cars he's own it's probably been one of the most temperamental and unreliable next to his 04 Sorento.
