Ford is making its SVT performance cars and parts available to all of its 3,900 dealers, not just a select few as is the case currently. On one hand, it s a solid decision to make Ford s most desirable, most aspirational models more widely available. Plus, Bob from accounting will do a delirious cabbage-patch dance in honor of the SVT line s high profit margins. On the other, Ford has some serious training to do to make sure its service techs are equipped not only to service fully formed Cobra GT500s and Sport Trac Adrenalins, but also to install SVT s aftermarket parts without sending an errant camshaft spinning off into someone s lasagna. Think about it.
