gold letters?

I saw a 2005-2007 focus today that was just like mine,except the trim letters "focus-se-zx4" were in gold letters and the ford emblem on the trunk had gold around the outside of it. Is this a special edition or something the owner did himself? there was too much traffic to get around them to see if anything was different on the front of the car.

I know Honda and Toyota used to do that to some of their emblems back in the day. Shit looked tacky.

well,I guess they could have done it themselves,but they did a good job if they did. Looked very professional. Not saying I liked it,but it didn't look like a hack job.

See that. He maybe spent ten bucks and was enough to set his car apart from the others. No pic = didn't happen.

Yeah, for people who wanted the "lexus" look on their cars. It was tacky (and looked especially awful on the forest green paint that was popular then), and for some reason people still like it. I don't doubt there are a number of ways to find gold-plated emblems for your car if that's your thing. The bottomless cesspool known as the "parts and accessories" section of eBay Motors almost certainly has something.

Tacky, tacky, tacky.

Gold emblems were all the rage back in the 80's and into the early 90's.
Body shops had to find somebody that the electolysis (sp?) thing on the emblems when they had to replace one. Some you could get factory even - Toyota had them on some models.
