2004 2.3L Duratec ZTW Wagon "Tasha"

Alright guys. So I got inspired to tell about my ZTW.

Back in either '06 or '07 (don't remember which) my parents owned my dad's ancient relic, an early 90s (I wanna say 92-93) Plymouth Voyager minivan, and my mom had a 2000 Dodge Grand Caravan, which we had since like '02. The Voyager was dying, and my mom wanted the new car, which she really preferred to be a Subaru wagon. We looked, and the cheaper alternative was a used 2004 Ford Focus ZTW wagon. This was the best deal at just over $10k, so we made the purchase. My mom drove this for YEARS. One day before football 3 years ago, the Grand Caravan blew a tire at 40 mph and snapped the tie rod and sway bar. We kept it around for my first car, while my dad bought a 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo (great vehicle). Last year in 2013, I got my drivers license (woot woot!). After 2 months of waiting for it to be fixed, the Grand Caravan was mine. Wee, big deal lol. Not much for a car, but it was reliable as hell. Anyways, being a novice driver and having very little winter driving experience, I crashed the Dodge into the concrete wall of a bridge 2 weeks after getting it :(. Rookie mistake: speeding a little and it was winter..duh.

Anyways, with that out of commish, I drove the Jeep while my dad got my uncles crappy Ford Escape. Finally, we found a new vehicle so that my mom could have a nice car. We bought a 2004 Jeep Liberty Rocky Mountain. I got the Focus, and the modding began!

I don't have a photo of when I first got it, but I kinda sorta also put the Focus in a ditch (it was a bad year for me). Completely tore up the front bumper.

But I got an aftermarket one for $80. Primed and ready to paint!

Then, I put LED accents under the headlights.

(Not in picture) I then bought some Kicker speakers (300 watt max)

I plasti dipped the rims, looks awesome IMO!

I did the Lunchbox delete...kinda sorta had to rig that with tin lol

Moved it a little tonight.

And a Foose license holder, Ford decal, etc...

Stock interior but planning changes (SVT gauge panel etc.).

Hope you enjoy and hope the story wasn't too long!

Cool 23 powered wgn. I'd do a bsd plug= makes the motor more responsive & deletes static & rotational weight. 6qtrs/filter, oil pan sealant & a bsd plug + 2-3hrs of your saturday morning.

Thanks for the suggestion! I'll put it on my to-do list.

Yesssir, this is the tale of me getting my rice on lol! Yeah its a pretty good start. Like I said, SVT tach cluster in the future, new HU cuz the Blaupunkt isn't as nice as I want with the Kicker speakers, way in the future is a stage 1 and 2 turbo kit and 2.5" magnaflow exhaust or something similar.

Make sure you get an HU that has an aux or USB port!

Go big or go home.
