Here's how I look at it. It's exactly what I want, perfect color (even though I like red most first gen red focuses look like poo) zetec five speed etc etc, cheap and if the door is either A rusted or B dented (I'm assuming rusted) I can pick up a door for less than a hundo and have it painted just as cheap. It may need some work, but I'm cool with that, I bought my truck needing a lot more than just a sway bar.
I will ask about the timing belt and clutch, hopefully at least the timing belt has been done recently. I hate knowing I'm never going to find anything as reliable as the inline six in my truck.

And I don't know why cars rot so bad here. I think it's because PennDot is so fricking lazy they salt the crap out of the roads and don't plow. This new liquid brine stuff has made it so much worse.
