Wth!

I shall now take this time, as the owner of a 2.0 sedan, to whine furiously about the SVT owners that I've seen in my area... It's completely mindboggling. I've seen 6 so far, 5 of which were driven by people that were clearly over 50 and seemed to be completely uninterested in modding the car in any way, shape or fashion.. I actually had one guy ask me plain as day, as I gawked at his car, "What's so cool about it anyways? It's just a Focus." ... Tears people, TEARS. I seriously hope that you're not all aging geriatrics that let it sit in the driveway stock and untouched... jesus.


Oh, and the 6th SVT? Yeah, his was stock too, when he saw my FF sticker, he asked if I was a member, I said yeah and he said "Oh, I scroll every now and then, but I don't mod the SVT... I have a Supra that I put my car money into."


...

I don't think I've ever seen Q-Tips driving SVTs.

You shoulda asked that one if he'd straight-up trade with ya... I mean since they're both "just Focuses"!

Haha, yeah around here I see some "older" drivers driving them. The saddest one I've ever seen was this total junker black EAP. Bumper stickers all over it, I saw it in the driveway omg, 2 flat tires, scratches all down the sides, ripped seats. I asked the owner why she bought it and she said "because it was fast". I think the reason you'll see a couple older people in them is because at the end of 04 dealers were scrambling to get them off their lots and giving people better deals than fully loaded ZX3's. Thats how I got mine.

an SVT is a nice DD a regular zx3 is a nice beater.


plus just realize that they aren't being beat on and when they are traded in you can get a fresh start when you get them next.

Ah, the innocence of youth. Not everyone is interested in modifying their car. Just be lucky you see SVTs around you. I'm lucky if I see something on the road other than an LX.
