Just look at the good side....there should be sales all over the place, as well as more stuff on E-Bay. If you played your card correctly, you have a secure job, your house and car are paid off, you have a bunch of cash under your mattress, and you have no balance due on your numerous credit cards.

Course we're all not that lucky (smart). It's a great time to buy.....you selling?

I've already decided that I'm done modding for a long time, I might just start saving the pennies incase ford really does bring the RS to the states in 2010, but I also have my eye out for an MR2 for a solid track day car.

I would have to say none of the above, I am not planning on modding much at all. I am still happy with the mods I have now.

EDIT:But it does bug the crap out of me that I may not be able to get another loan to get another focus so that I can mod that.

I haven't seen any negatives in my personal life as a result of the "bad economy".
I'm still getting paid the same, and gas is actually way less than before.
Its down to $2.59 for 87 octane here in kansas city. I'm surely not complaining.
I am still modding though for sure.
