Theme Tuesdays: Ford Probes

4

Last week on suggested that I do a Ford Probe Theme Tuesday.

Being a sucker for a good challenge I dove head first into a land of swing up doors and body kits until I came back with a collection of Ford Probes that didn’t scream 1998.

Probin’ ain’t easy.

For the life of me I can’t recall the last first generation I saw on the road, and it certainly didn’t look like this

Notice anything different about the positioning of this motor compared to the ones above?

It’s actually been rotated and was backed by a Miata transmission and rear end making it rear wheel drive, the way the Probe probably should have come stock

The car above is actually the second Probe he built, with the one below being the first

Who’d have thunk multiple people would campaign Ford Probes as serious drag cars?
