Never thought I'd make this thread.

The SVTF will be gone on Friday. I actually never thought I'd be making a thread like this, as I honestly thought I'd be keeping it forever. I'm actually really depressed just thinking about it, but I feel it's time to move on to a new car. I've had 2 different Foci over the course of 5 years now, the SVT for 3 of those years, so it's gonna be really weird not having one anymore. It's getting parted out over the next 2 days, and traded in for the new whip on Friday.

You're all gonna ask what I'm getting, and all I wanna say is it's a car I've wanted since I was 17 (now I'm 23, so that's 6 years) and I'll post pictures of it in the Showroom on Friday. It's nothing amazing, I just like keeping secrets, haha.

I'm still gonna be on the forums all the time and going to meets, and ofcourse posting pictures of the new car as I modify it. Maybe one day I'll be able to own another Focus (a full race, track ready beast hopefully) and till then I'll still be hanging around.

I'm guessing it's an '89 Corolla - Grats on the new ride!

Sadly, I've been having thoughts of selling my SVT too. I don't think it will happen for a while, but I would LOVE a V8. Waiting for a new job first, then I'll see how things go.

I know what it is cuz he told me but we'll let the anticipation build. It's mean though, and will chew up my SVT and spit it out.

Haha, well it's definetly quicker than my SVT, no question, but it's not amazingly fast. Wish I could've afforded the amazingly fast one, but I like this body style better anyway.

You said you'd post some pics on Friday so in one hour get ready

Congrats on the new ride.
