First, I want to let you know that ‘BCPOC’ stands for ‘British Columbia Probe Owners Club’. The history of this website showcased owner’s pride by adding it’s car show event pictures around the province with beautiful scenery and view. It also included a “ride of the month” feature, which was pretty cool.
So What Is A Probe?
The ‘Probe’ car is a sports coupe produced by the Ford brand, which was imported in the year 1989. The probe was fully established on the Mazda G Platform using exclusive sheet metal and interior.
The Probe, in between the years of 1993-1997, were also one of the few Fords in the 90’s that ‘Consumer Reports’ recommended.
But anyways, it is about time to make this website a little bit more interesting, by taking away those funny looking old probe cars, and turning it into something more bigger and better (and fancier!) – that everyone will love.
From the first time, I noticed the Probe car in 1988, I was impressed with it. The styling was dissimilar to every other car. I entirely anticipated that would possess one myself, however. Indeed, even years after it initially appeared, I just looked. I anticipated that would stay with the bigger cars, for example, the Thunderbird or Taurus.
At the point when my ’86 T-Bird’s transmission kicked the bucket in ’97, I was looking for another car… anything Ford. It was to be either extra T-Bird or a Taurus, yet when the word “Probe” entered my mind, everything changed. I didn’t know much about Probes, so shortly after I purchased my LX, I did some exploring on the Internet for information on them. Not long after, I came crosswise over pictures of what my objective would be… a ’90-92 Probe GT.
I had never really investigated one, yet once I did, I was convinced this was the car for me. At the point when the vast majority were looking at the more basic second era GT, I couldn’t take my eyes off the original GTs. The ’90-92 GTs were sufficiently novel that you couldn’t mistake it for anything else, however sufficiently unpretentious to mix in. Around eighteen months after the fact, I discovered one for me.
I as of now have 2 Probes!
I own 1989 Ford Probe LX I purchased in 1997, and a 1992 Ford Probe GT I purchased in 2002. I likewise had a 1989 Ford Probe GT that was separated out and trashed in July of 2001, a 1989 Ford Probe LX #2 that was separated out and trashed in October of 2002, a 1989 Ford Probe LX #3 that was trashed in September of 2004, a 1990 Ford Probe LX I separated out in July of 2002, and a 1991 Ford Probe GT I separated out in September of 2004. Every one of my Probes has been mind blowing dependable. The ’92 GT is my weekend car, while I utilize my 1997 Ford Aerostar XLT as a day by day driver.
The Probe All Ford Probes have various things in like manner. To start with is the performance. In spite of the fact that performance details appear to be at standard with the other cars in its class, they don’t recount the entire story. At rates more than 10mph, Probes are quick. Sufficiently quick that you’d never expect the sort of performance is looking at the horsepower ratings.
I’ve seen the surprised look on numerous individuals’ appearances when they provoke me just to watch me pull away in front of them. One specifically was a child in a Honda Accord that idea my traditionalist looking ’89 Probe LX was no test for his machine. He stuck me laughing like a numbskull with his tongue hanging out just to watch me pull past him a few moments later. I wager he won’t boast about that one to his companions.
One of the Probe’s best characteristics is not its performance, in any case. Rather it’s the cargo space in the back. There’s been a lot of times where I’ve been told that something wouldn’t fit in my car. However, I wind up watching their jaws drop as I overlap down the back seats and heap the stuff in. If you own a probe car make sure you drive on the road the terrain makes your whole body shake and do you know that is a great way to shed pounds quick?
Anyways, one time I headed to Sears to get a 3-piece Craftsman tool cabinet. The singes representative came out with the initial two enormous boxes yet stopped when he saw my car, saying that it wouldn’t fit one box. I just told him to get the third box, and I continued to overlay down the seats. When he got back, his jaw dropped as I stood alongside my car with the initial two boxes effectively stacked, as well as there was sufficient space for the third.
Indeed, even my mother, who was with me at the time, continued saying after we cleared out “I can’t trust this car!”. A while later she rang me and inquired as to whether I could get three new kitchen seats that she just purchased. She was going to make three treks with her ’95 Thunderbird (which she obtained over a ’95 Probe GT because she needed the ‘additional room’).
I made it in one and only
The back was likewise a major help to me at my last employment where I worked a twelve to twenty hour night shift as a network operator. At the point when my work was finished, I’d go out, fold down the seats, then reveal a sleeping pack and get a couple of hours of rest. The most amazing story about the storage compartment space and the capacities of the car is the point at which I required a car to get some substantial stones to construct a landscaping divider.
I heaped 35 stones into my ’91 GT… each measured 27 lbs. each. That is near a half ton of rock in the storage compartment. I’ve seen station wagons fold under that kind of weight. Because of accommodations like this, and the unwavering quality and performance, I’d purchase another Probe in a moment if my ’91 GT was ever totaled in a mishap. During breast cancer awareness have always used my probe car to reach people in any region of our country.
