So I picked up my 3rd focus a while back...

Hey everyone, dunno who all is still around from back when I was active, but Im back. Picked up a 2005 ZX5 ATX fully loaded with 190xxx on the clock! Beautifully maintained car. Leather seats look new. Inside and out its clean. Few minor dings but an amazing find. So heres the journey that led to this...

My first Focus bought new in 07. SES ATX that was an absolute blast to drive but was in the shop alot due to an 18yr abusing it =)


After 47k and an engine, I parted ways with her. Then I figured since I loved the first one so much, Id try a hatch. So I bought an 03 Advancetrac ZX3 MTX with 101xxx and essentially destroyed it (Although I do still own it and it runs/drives, it hasnt seen public streets in 6 months) Ive had it for 6 years now and havent decided what Ill do with it yet. Currently only has 147xxx on it.



interior


So since I bought and demolished the 03, Ive gotten married! And it was about time to have an adult daily that wasnt an obnoxious POS that drew way too much attention from everyone on the road lol


Only mods are tinted tails, tinted yellow fogs, and some LEDs on the inside. Planning on new headlights and wheels (Most likely Mustang 10holes, Obsessed with those wheels) annnnd maybe a 1.5in drop though I doubt Ill ever get to that point. Glad to be back and hope to see some familiar faces and new friends!

Rear view of the stripped out 1 seat hatch looks AWFUL familiar (grin). (FF in KY)

Can't help but think of it every time someone talks about lightening the car.

Congrats!

And welcome back to being more active again.
