Thanks! Yeah its nice. My dad works at Ford so thats what we drive. We have a 2010 Focus, my 2001 focus, my sisters 2002 focus, my dads 1998 escort zx2, 1993 club wagon (aka big bertha. lol) and my dads 2001 F350. We are selling the van once we sell it, and my dads escort when he replaces it with a focus.

What does your fam drive?

On your pic problem, do you have a smartphone? If you do, you can just send the pics over the internet instead of removing the card. I send mine to my flikr account, have had no issues once I made them smaller, they were too big from my phone.
No I dont. :( I have just a normal phone. I thought about getting one, but decided it wouldnt be worth it for me to pay that much extra money for my phone every month. Once im on my own then I will have one someday. But thanks for the tip!

i drive a focus obviously, my dad has a 93 Dodge Ram, a 98 Mercury Villager, and his 90-something Ford Ranger work truck. my sister drives an 05 Pontiac Vibe, and my mom drives a 2010 Nissan Juke which is extremely ugly IMO.
i plan on getting a Focus sedan for the winter and i'll store my ZX3 in storage.

Very nice! When I was younger, I used to be like what not all fords! booo. drive all fords. lol But now that im older I dont care. Just as long as they are american. Which I dont think the nissan qualifies but idc. lol And yes they are verrry ugly. We had a 93 Villager (I think that was the year) for a veryyyy long time. It was an awesome van!

Why do you want to do that? I would do that only if I came upon a amazing deal. I love my car more and more everyday. lol

So yesterday my sister got her lisence, so she is officially driving the zx5. I am going over to my friends house later to try and reseal the headlight with moisture in it, and while im at it try to pop out the dent thats right in the fender by the headlight. Then aim the headlights.

tell her to join the forums ;D
and the reason i would get a sedan for winter is so i don't put my baby in the ditch. my bumper is already messed up and it's pretty light i believe. plus if i get it for a good price, i can maybe put money into it and sell it for more in the summer.

Yeah thats true. My sister makes fun of me for being on here (along with the rest of my family.) lol I told her she should go to a FX meet with me and my dad should go too but she was like no way im not going to your dumb focus meets. lol Oh well. All that matters is I like being on here. Im being on here alot less now though because I have more stuff to do. Kinda feels nice in a way.

So I realize by posting this that others may buy it, but im going to take that risk. I found this short throw shifter used and it says fits 02-10. Is there something that makes it not work for 01s? I didnt know if there was a design change, or if it was just a mistake by the seller.

Don't buy it. Ford changed the shifter design in 2002 1/2 year model. You can easily tell which shifter you have by what the stock shift knob looked like.
pre- 2002 1/2 on the left and 2002 1/2-2011 on the right.
Sorry but it won't work on you car... but will work on my car... Thanks! No hard feelings I hope.
