|rambleon84||The car would be ridiculous if you could get an AWD into it. Oh well, it was amazing watching the progress of the car as you worked on and updated over the years.|

So I took the car to FR15. I didn't get to finish all the things I wanted to before the trip, and thus wasn't really proud of the car there....so I didn't pay much attention to cleaning it once there, left my doors and hood closed, and spent my time browsing everyone else's cars.
I got home, and felt rejuvenated with motivation to re-visit some areas of the car I felt need attention. I am already working through all of that.....yet in the process realized I'm at a bit of a crossroads......take the car back off driving duty and go into things like boost, or track down an x-type to AWD V6 swap this car......or just stop. I also have been talking to a realtor about commercial property to push my side-shop work into possibly a legitimate business, and discovered I need 20% down to purchase commercial property to do so.....I am listing this car for sale in an effort to pass it on to someone who will appreciate it, and use the money to purchase a commercial building. I can always get a cheap shell and do another one if I really want to.....but I can also buy the new one when it comes out......
I want to thank everyone on the community that followed along with my build, offered support and kind words, shared in my triumphs and failures, and those who voted for me whenever I was in ROTM. I truly love this community, and don't count me out.....I still have some tricks up my sleeve and will still be here as much as I ever have been.
I'll link the for-sale ad here when I finish writing it.
End of an Era.

|hurtinfocus||Don't worry, I still have it. Daily driving has been chipping away at it (literally)....and I never did get around to making and painting a set of side skirts for myself....was trying to get to them for Focus Rising this coming weekend but didn't get it done. Car is a little banged up from highways and parking lots but I still love it and I'll be at FR with it in Carlisle this weekend.|

I too just ready through the entire build, and it's PHENOMENAL! Great talent, great patience. A ton of blood, sweat and tears were put into this unbelievable piece of art. Congrats on creating a true "Legend".
Sorry to hear that no one jumped at the body kits you offered to sell. If my SVT was the only car I was building, a body kit with work like this would be a "must". Thank you for sharing now 51 pages worth PORN for us Focus fans!

I'm up for January ROTM folks. My birthday happens to be the 29th, this would be an excellent gift haha!
If you've just read through this thread because you saw my car in the voting thread, I greatly appreciate you taking the time to read through the build.

|hurtinfocus||I'll likely ask around $12,000 for it with a little room to negotiate. The only non-oem parts are the rear arches and the side skirts.|

|CarGuyNeil||How much will you sell it for?|
|12-13-2014 12:27 PM|
|hurtinfocus||Probably not. I'll be attending Focus Rising most likely, which is part of Carlisle All-Ford Nationals. After that (maybe even DURING the event) I'm considering listing the car for sale to move on to other things.|
