Bought this gem for 500 bones last week. Auto, 1.3 4 cylinder. Might be swapping in a b8 mazda motor (miata, protege, 323?) and some other things later. Might just let the GF have it though. Let me know what you think!

And a shot with the old focus. I haven't posted much here but I figured someone might be interested [8D]

She needs to be slammed. [hihi]

Looks to be in good shape. I know I'd love to get a car like that for a project.

I joined fordfestiva.com the other day, having posted yet though. I would love to drop it but I'm still in search of an inexpensive way to do so safely. Not to mention mud season is in full swing on my dirt road haha. I'm pumped on it, just working out the kinks so far!

looks like a great little economical beater, but I don't think its really worth it to throw $$ at it though.. Defeats its purpose.

I want one of those with a 4spd manual.

Exactly the point for why you would throw money into it. lol

Says the owner of a turbo focus [joke]

I'm trying to figure out the best route for engine and tranny swaps, I'm not thinking of going turbo quite so much. For now I want the car to get up and go a little better and maybe reach highway speeds... Not that I want to be on the highway in this car...
