so happy this car is salvagable, huge thanks to everyone again! and to Josh and fam for making huge trip down to Poolesville to help me out
And to New Jersey dude - didn't think your post was rude at all, I appreciated the honesty!! There were some issues I should've known about before I bought it. Too late now, just gotta fix it up. Thing had some ghetto rigged stuff going on with it...the "de-ricing" is in motion :) I thought it was Clifton, but it's really Wallington. I didn't really know any better don't know NJ for anything.
At the day of sale (I think), I passed by you (one donut tire on yours) on the parking lot. I was about to stop but didn't my bad. The guy was expecting a baby, the reason for sale. Don't know how the car ended in Wallington, he lives in Clifton. Goood Luck with the car, if need some advice feel free to ask FF for anything. I was going to buy the car, but 5th Focus in the house is overkill for the wifie :)
