thinking about getting... what do you guys think? V8 Focus



2003 Ford Focus ZX3 Pro Touring V8 Power


So i've been going back and forth. I've talked to the guys selling it and they are firm on the price. I know it's got enough put into it and it's unique enough... but do you really think it's worth it?

what do you guys think?

Wow ... another V8 in TX ... being sold.

It all depends on the price. I think the V8 focus is a great have if you have one. But get it thinking you will be getting any good gas mileage out of it. lol.

But for show ... definitely.

That is a cool car no doubt but 35 grand can buy you a whole hell of a lot in the used sports car market.

They want too much for it, and it's only as good as the work done to it. You could make your own for cheaper than that IMO

agreed..... I mean I know my car wont be as nice as that when it's drivable but I mean that's max 7k I've put into the car and that's including purchase price when I bought it a few years ago and all the mods/repairs I've done to it

but it looks nice. Better be for that cost.

that is a really clean looking car. For 35k you could by a 03-04 cobra, have money left over, and still be able to kill most anything on the road

I have seen this car before, and for the mods that have been done to thiis car they are not asking to mutch! It can be daily driven and is faster than a cobra. If you have that kind of money to spend on a v8 focus I would. At least you won't be another d-bag in a mustain! Just my opinion and yes I know there are some chill mustang owner to.
