Howdy everyone! I'm a newbie from up here in downeast Maine. Let see my veh's are a 2000 Buick Regal gs with a supercharged 3800v6 and a blast to drive. But my new purchase is a 2003 Ford Focus svt with 58k on the clock. I bought it from the org owner.The only issue with the focus is it was involved in a single car wreck and damaged the rf lower control arm and right rear arms are bent some. Only gave $1000.00 for her and plan on fixing it up this spring.Cant wait! Well hope to meet a bunch of new friends that will help with any questions i might have about these little rockets.

Hello!

Little ol' lady from the midwest (don't carry a side arm ... yet) After a 20 year love affair with a red escort pony (speedometer long gone so only know it had 150,000mi for sure) the red rolling turd blew the head gasket and because the electronics were obsolete I chose to get a "new" car. I have been lusting after a focus for at least 5 years and just bought a 2006 zx3 manual transmission I love it. What I'm after is knowledge to make this baby last 20 years too. How do I improve the mpg? (getting 23mpg in town) Any and all suggestions appreciated. I made the turd last by changing oil and fixing stuff before it broke (She got 24mpg in town when she passed) The only thing I regret is not buying a ride with a full instrument panel. I miss a tach. My other car is a 1958 Triumph TR3a. My first car was a MG midget. I rebuilt the engine with my own two hands so I understand what's going on.

This car has some real fire in it!! Zip!

If you really miss the tach so much go get one from a junk yard that has one. It's really not hard. Just make sure to get either one from a 06 or 05 I believe, I think you can even go 04?

Or depending on if you are willing to get into it? Go buy a 2 inch tach from Glowshift or someone online and install it.

And welcome to FF. Hope you enjoy your stay.
