WTB Local Focus - MI

I am new to the focus world and really want to get into one very soon. I am on the market to buy one and was wondering if there is anything I should know/ look for? differences between years or things that are better? Id love a manual transmission. Any suggestions? also my budget is pretty low. anyone in the michigan area selling?

I'm selling mine..but I'm in Wisconsin. :(

All I can say is, get an SVT if you can. I settled on a Zx3..and I just wish that I had gotten an SVT. Not that they're really a whole ton faster or anything. But they just look cleaner. And they hold their value better than a Zx3.

I've been thinking of selling my 02 svt. 75k miles I think. I'm in chicago but will travel. There are some body issues but my price will be low. PM me if you're interested.

If you mod. I would look for a 2003 and newer 2.3L MTX Hatch or Wagon.

Also, don't buy local, spend the money and get a southern car so there is no rust growing on the dang thing.

Otherwise, if you are looking super cheap, I know of 2 that are sub 3000 one is a zetec manual, one is a zetec auto. Both are fixers, but able to be drove as is.

Lscfn10 has his red car.

Stage 1 clutch, diff, header, upgraded front sway bar, fswerks tune...ect.

Pm him (on FJ) I would classify his as a "low budget" car.

I was talking about his and Matts.

Both are fixer uppers to a point. But can be DDed as they sit.

Moved to Want To Buy, and added MI to the title.
The general forum areas are not for buy/sell/trade items.
Thank you.

Besides...
Someone from out of the area just might come to you.
