In my eyes SVT died with the SN95. The "Shelby" is far more of a midlife crisismobile than a genuine advancement over the GT like the termis were and they were reasonably priced to boot. The Raptor is just an utterly pointless vehicle. The Lightnings may have been useless as trucks but at least their performance features were useable every day, I don't see many raptor owners jumping dunes just for kicks during a commute but I bet every Lightning owner had some fun at a stoplight immediately following their purchase. .
My gf's step dad bought his Raptor to tow stuff. I convinced him to put his foot in it. He liked it a lot. He babys the crap out of that truck. I keep telling him, it's a high performance sports truck. It was made for a redneck with a heavy right foot.
