There are certain cars we gush over now, only to bash them a few years later. Some cars are genuine design classics, some even get better with time. But then there are the cars you have a look at again and wonder why people were raving about them in the first place. Let's look at the Ford Probe again.
The Probe is undoubtedly the butt of numerous jokes because of its name. It's a stupid name, what the hell were you thinking, Ford? But introduced in 1988 as the small sports coupe segment was heating up in a big way, it lasted two generations and proved relatively popular among the Preludes, Celicas, Eclipses and Talon (OMG, I love a Talon) back in the day.
