Man Down!

Havent been on the site for a long time because I was busy with school. But i Just wanted to inform everybody that the focus may be done. Its been through a lot in the last few months. Ruined the front bumper by hitting a partridge, then was rearended and the other driver decided to run, and now tonight in maines snowstorm I was hit on the from end. Bumper is smashed, Halo headlights facing the sky, passenger door wont open, hood pushed over four inches, fenders on both sides are bent, and the worst part... Fluid is leaking under the car. It was towed to my house on the flatbed. So Im gunna snag the konig rims off with the new tires and then wait for the insurance adjuster to come. If its cheap to buy it back i might, but most likely not. Looks like I will be soon looking for an SVT focus, or a jetta Vr6.

my insurance adjuster just came to look at it. Pretty much getting all new front of my car. door to door painting. new grille, halos, hid kit, bumper, fenders hood, radiator, fog lights and anything else they find. Right now the total is at $2400. Also the person were gunna have do all the work and painting isa family friend. so maybe ill get the whole car painted for that price and throw on a new svt front bumper and put my svt rear bumper on that i have in my garage So now all i have to do is wait and hope that their state farm adjuster comes up with the same result. Im just surpirsed they would want to put that much into an 01 auto zx3 with 127k miles.

Well atleast you get to keep your car! They might just total it if the adjuster sees it as too much to fix.

But looking at your avatar I'd say thats a nice looking car :D

Car looks much different than the avatar. All the markers are blacked out with new halo headlighta, eyelids and lower. We will see how bad it looks after I get the frame bent back. With the amount of stuff the focus has been through lately i think I'm only Gunna spend about $500 to get it on.the road then buy a motorcycle for this summer. Otherwise is soon tp have dumped more than double the cars value into it.
