What I Drive: On the hunt

Hey everyone. I've been on the hunt for a clean SVT or ZX3 for about a month now and they are IMPOSSIBLE to find. Well, impossible to find from a private party. Dealers are frequently charging a $1.5 - 2k premium due to the mpg the focus gets.

I commute to work around 100 miles a day and after doing a lot of research on decent hatchbacks, I've realized the focus is the car of choice. I can't imagine driving a civic, there are thousands of them and have no personality. I currently have a 99 S-10 ZR2, and the mpg it gets is well, not so great. Not to mention with the amount of oil she leaks, I'm straying away from GM.

Anyway, just wanted to register and stop in and say the forum is great, I've spent at least close to an hour here each day reading older threads.
