Well my 2005 pitch black ZX3 is gone. But I have to hand it to that little car; it took a MAJOR hit and protected me. I was going 50 on a major road in NH and got hit by a car crossing at an intersection. I don't know how much speed I was able to scrub off, I tried to make as much of a right hand turn as I could to get out of her way but she just kept her foot in the gas to get across. Later she said she didn't see me (it was 4:45 in the afternoon!) I took it square in the driver side door. The impact slid me about 40 feet sideways. Injuries...a few sore muscles! The side air bag didn't deploy which was a concern but I'm fine.

Now I'm working on my older 2000 ZX3 to get it back on the road. It sat for 5 years, 2 1/2 years since it was started. It started (a little help with ether) in about 10 mins. I'll drive it until the 11-12 Focus 3 door is back then think about buying another one.
