New Car!

Just signed the paperwork on a 05 ZX4 ST manual! Silver with the red/black interior. That 2.3 is a torquey little sucker, she likes to torque steer a lot. Now the inevitable slide down the hill of performance..........Never had a 4 cylinder before, not used to dealing with only half the motor. But I do love the way it drives, it's got 21k on it for miles, and I only paid 12k for it.

My first car was a 1968 mustang. My second is a Nissan frontier. Hopefully around June, my 3rd car will be a focus. I want a focus because the truck has nothing at all in it. Talk about no balls.

I want the Zx3 because I sometimes have to carry stuff. I don't really want a 4 door. I don't really fit the 4 door person.

Congrats, you will love it. The '05 is good because you get the awesome 2.3 duratec and keep the tried and true '00-'05 suspension. have fun.

PICS!!!!


Some non-stock front tires.


I like the look of the interior.

Something appears to be missing though......oh well, gives me an excuse to put an aftermarket one on.

Car looks good man. Paint those housings black and get some black rims with a polished lip. Throw some cling tint on those turn signals.
