I have been collecting parts for the last 7 years to build my 2.3 NA Zetec & spent over 12k dollars so far. Worth every penny to me. Good luck on finding "anyone else with a genuine and *serious* interest"
I don't need training wheels.
(AWD,Traction control,Stability control,Launch assist,Autotrans,Paddle shifters). Got my driving skills driving front/rear wheel drive high performance cars on the street for the last 40 years.
