The Death of a Focus

Hey guys,
I don't really post here much, but I've had my Focus ZTS for over three years and I babied it, saved it from being totaled twice already, until yesterday. Now it is in that big shop in the sky.

I thought some of you may be interested, so I posted some pictures on my site.

I tell you what, it's been proven again and again, a Focus can really take a hit. Seems as if it's gotta happen, it's a good car to have it happen in. Glad you were alright!

Damn, you ok? Took quite a shot there. Heck, it ain't so bad, 3k in plastic, new radiator, some bondo and duct tape, you can save her a third time, lol

Wow those are some crazy pictures. We're all glad that you survived a head on collision at those speeds. It sucks that you had to part ways with the car like that but hey, you can always get another car.

When all of this happened, did the car that you avoided hitting stop at all? I would've gotten his info so he could be properly ticketed for being a moron.

Half mast for this beautiful sedan no more......

Yes, this car did save my life! No, no one from that side of the hwy even bothered to stop. Apparently there are traffic cameras in the area, as far as I know the police are checking them!

Holy CRAP!!!! I'm really glad to see that you're alive. It's also ironic that an insurance company sign got hit, don't you think? Heheh. Anyway, those pictures speak for themselves. Having personally totalled my first ZX3 with a driver side impact from an Ford Econoline van (doing about 30), I can testify that the Focus is indeed designed very well with safety in mind. The interior cabin space holds up extremely well, and in many cases you'd never even know it was in an accident until you stepped out and looked at the exterior of the vehicle. God I love these cars!
