James Ford Probe GT


Written by: James Bennett aka “WBJ”

This was my first real “show car” and how I ended up in Jade. Fresh from moving to Orlando with my Ford Probe GT I decided to look up things to do to it on the net. So i fired up AOL (it was a long time ago) and ended up finding Russ and his probe. After hanging out a life long friendship was born. The car has had 2 sets of rims, various racing stripes and 2 full system installs. The main problem with the car was it was an automatic, which made it very slow. The Greddy SP exhaust on the Probe GT has got to be one of the best sounding exhausts I have ever heard. After being sick of having no go at all I stripped the car down to stock and traded her in on a 1998 BMW Mroadster.
