I may have a focus collection!

I'm interested in purchasing a focus ZX3 or ZTW... well i found a ZX3, a yellow one!!! its a 2003, 5speed MTX, sunroof, cruise control, pretty much fully loaded! i dont think it has ABS but no biggie. i need the hatchback because of all my photography equipment, its much easier to manipulate in a hatchback than a sedan, it already has some minor mods done to it. ill keep everyone updated!

lol its not an impulse, ive been wanting since i bought mine and had to load it up with photography gear for a party. the trunk is huge and it helps that the lid is supported with struts not goose necks. its just a pain to get the longer lighting gear stuff and the bulky cases for the computer and the cameras in it.

When I first saw my car it was from a few miles away. It was easy to see lol the only yellow one there. I was'nt looking for a yellow one it just turned out the one I came across at the time. I've grown quite fond of the color though. I'm about to turn 150k mi and I bought it with just a tick over 50k mi on it.

Me too, I was looking for a 5spd that is the only thing I found. This car is the best thing ever happened to me other than my wife. And I am in love with color yellow now, i want my next car to be yellow as well!! which I found a skoda octiva RS 2.0 TSI 200bhp and comes in yellow!!
with option about 40000. you gota hate Europe car, they are expensive...

it is a 2001 tho, which has a hand crank sun roof. the best option I have ever had. because it will never break!!
