My Fauxna (Fona)

Well, since my dads kona got totaled I decided to take what I wanted from it and make my own kona...I call her the Fauxna-a faux kona. Can't decide if I want to spell it fauxna or fona..What do you all think?

Well, here she is. I got this zx3 for $800 off craigslist with a bad fuel pump! With 140k on her I plan on keeping her for awhile. Mods/upgrades so far include- massive massacre strut tower brace, a magnaflow cat back exhuast (installed when I bought it), kona roof rack and side trim and my favorite upgrade my SVT EAP wheels! Other than that, bone stock.

I'm into this car for just at $1500! If you can find a cheap focus that's been taken care of, buy it! It's the most smiles per gallon you can get for the price!

I'm plainng on putting about $900 into her soon in the form of M-3000-ZX3A kit, eibach front and rear sway bars/with bushings, MOOG endlinks, and front and rear brakes...oh, and maybe poly engine mounts.

Already have some things done to it. Rest of the suspension will really change the car!

It's not a real Kona, Jeff lol. That's why he was debating on whether to make the name Fona or Fauxna. Since it is Egg Yolk Yellow, I am thinking that it's going to be a 2002 to 2004.

Oh come on Don, know me better than that. I realized that when it wasn't dirt brown. I meant that the previous focus was a Kona and he transferred some of the parts over to it.

Either way you don't see many Kona's around anymore
