Finally going to do it...

I honestly hated the focus... completely didn't like them when they first came out... I was very skeptical and said to my self a few times I would never buy one. about 7 months ago I bought one after test driving it and seeing a few *clean* examples done up crisp. Don't get me wrong I love my car and I enjoy it nice and clean like it is...BUT, I've always enjoyed what SVT had to offer and after driving one yesterday for the first time, I'm now pretty set on getting one to start off with instead of putting money into the zx3.

I love the interior, Dig the headlights.. honestly I think it's a tight little car and with the right love. I'm thinking of course maybe a powerworks supercharger or Jackson Racing... (I'll do some more research) but with that and a few other mods I know I will be very happy.

I dunno... Just had to let out some of this excitement to some people who probably know how I feel when they bought their SVT Focus...

I'm not looking to race for cash or try to pull off any rediculous ET in the qaurter but I'm siked...

Anyways I'm going back again tomorrow and I'm pretty sure I'm going to go ahead and get it...

It's a 2004 SVT 2dr hatch, That classic ford blue, Saleen 17''s and I love the two tone blue and black leather!

Did I also mention the car only has 40,000 miles on it... No mods completely stock 100%!

I with you man...just did the same thing. Flew all the way out to VA from WI to buy the thing and I LOVE it! You will too, it's such a fun car...the top end rocks!!! I've also been thinking about a supercharger but I know it's gonna have to wait till I graduate and get a "real" job.

There's a few that I'm actually looking at...

Looked at the zonic blue one today and presented them the deal that another dealer had given me but they weren't budging at all... A**holes! LOL

I dunno Id much rather have the 2door but it looks like I'm going to have to go with the 4 door hatch... Which I don't like as much but it's still a gorgeous car and is in flawless condition. It's red.
