No but it all seriousness that car looks like hell, there are a couple Mk3's in the northern suburbs that would give that thing a run for it's money though. There's a black one cruising around here with more LED lights than one can shake a stick at.

I'm not sure where it was taken. It was on a Michigan forum, so I'm willing to bet it's a northern suburb car rather than a downriver. If it was a Dodge Pickup on the other hand.... lol

That's not a first gen but it is a talon. At least he didn't buy different color fender and bumper to replace the damaged one and those got damaged too. I see that all the time around here. I'm like please just give up on driving.... please. There is a used to be black civic, every panel except the roof is a different color and all those are damaged too. Plus the have a big spoiler on it.

I posted a faster time on an autocross course in a stanced Focus on cheap stretched Falken tires, rear control arms pointed to the sky, and tons of camber than I did in a properly setup autocross Focus on sticky autocross street tire rubber (Dunlop Star Specs). Same course, same day, I drove both cars.

Yes, the stanced Focus had more engine mods and was putting down more power to the ground with an LSD.

Pointless adding power to a stanced car? I think that shows it isn't.
