Post Can You Take It?

funny thing is about to happen my girlfriend is getting the new 2004 wrx sti. I feel more embarrased then I have ever felt my whole life and I am just soo madd at ford. FORD is in the top 4th, worths 164 billion dollars. It pisses me off knowing theyre not making cars to compete with these imports.
I am willing to pay $33,000 for a car that will take on the wrx sti from ford and the same class.

what are your opinions about how ford let us down? I am not your therapist, but use all the words (F's B's and other) in the book to express your anger.

first this is in the wrong forum.....
Secondly, the focus isn't made to compete with those 4 banger supercars because i think that there is not a huge demand for them to make them profitable. When you really think about it, who are the people who actually wanna buy those cars, not people with families, for the most part, not women or older people. its only the true car enthusists and young kids. That is not a huge percentage of people who wanna buy these cars, so i think for doesn't' see it as a benefit. Does it make me mad they don't have em? yes. would i buy one? prolly if i could afford it.

yeah STis are extremely badass.. just do this, get a 88-91 Honda CRX..gut it.. build up a motor, like a B18 block with a B16 head, build the internals like crazy.. and w/o a turbo you could be faster.. cheaper and NA.. and yeah I do wish ford would make something that could compete.. ha..

ford makes cars that can beat an sti or an evo. they just dont have four cylinders.

personally, if i had to choose between spending a comperable amount of money on a new mustang gt or a turbo focus, i would go with the mustang any day of the week. that is just my personal opinion, and you are free to disagree.

if you really want a focus that competes with the sti, talk with turbo tom. he will be happy to help you.
