I feel like if the dealership spent the $ to have it painted a normal color, and bought new head/tail lights, they would restore so much value to this poor focus..

Well while we're all waiting for story time, feast your eyes on this baby. Those wheels must weigh 30lbs apiece lol. 0-60 in 12 seconds I'm guessing?

Welp. I believe the car was bought new by a guy around here. He spent tons of money and time on it, including a JRSC. Apparently it was a show car. He kept this thing spotless on a regular basis. Something happened with his wife- they went through a divorce, and she took his car, knowing it would make everything worse for him. At this point it had 5,000 miles.

So after this poor guy lost his pride and joy, his (now ex) wife met another guy. Basically, the new guy beat the piss out of it for 40,000 miles. This part is a little cloudy, i'm not positive how/why he got rid of it. Well this guy got tired of it and sold it, or traded it in.

It ended up at a dealership here in Green Bay. A month or two later, it was found 45 minutes south of Green Bay at another dealership. I guess it was in a car auction that a buddy went to, and for a fair price. He was actually interested in buying it, looked under the hood, and no more JRSC. So he passed. And now it's sitting at that dealership. What a shame lol

You know, i just might call and offer them factory headlights, hood, and non painted fenders to trade. Worth a shot
