Well guys, its been fun, but im getting a second car to mod. the focus just isnt the performer i want. and i want rwd [:D] . plus, i need my focus to stay a reliable cheap mode of transportation. im getting a 1978 datsun 280z and plan on dropping in a sbc 350 by the summer. its gonna be AWESOME.

the Datsuns are very nice. Might I suggest going for a '71 240Z though. If you can find one, they were wonderful cars, and most of them can stil be found in good condition, with little rust. The 280 just wasn't the performer or handler the 240 was. It was heavier, the suspension was tuned differently, and the engine was sluggish. The 280's also don't age as well. Good luck bro, check back at FF and give us progress on the project.
