my taxes are pending to my account, looks like 4/4 will be the cheapest day to fly between now and june. might get the tickets today even.

oh and i found a 04 focus on craigslist for 3350 with 98kmiles in portland, has some american racing 17" wheels with falken tires, debadged, cold air intake, and a complete exhaust header back ( says straight pipe and header looks like aftermarket). not 100% on this car right now. gonna get ahold of my family and see if they can go take a look at it for me. if its a good deal im gonna try to get it for 3k and then sell the 17"s and put my enkie 18" on instead.

if you reconize the car let me know any info you have.
is the throttle body for the automatic and manual swapable? heard it is and isnt, i have the focus central tb.

and the craigslist add

booked tickets for 4/2, ill be in dallas oregon by 8pm on the 2nd.


still looking for a car, got 3k to spend on one. i prefer a 1st gen focus zx3 or zx5 manual tranny. wife wants something different though. im sure if i can find a good deal then it wont be an issue to get a focus. she just doesnt like hatchbacks. keep telling her we will get a nice used car for her by oct from a dealer.

ill be in portland at 3:05, be in dallas by 8pm.

anyone seen any hatchback 1st gen focus with a forsale sign? i have as much as $3000 to spend on it. or know of any decent paying jobs around the salem/dallas area? then plz let me know, im willing to do what ever makes money (preffer legally).

gonna try to check this car out on the 3rd, looks like a decent deal and appears to be in fairly good shape.

welcome to oregon, if you look on cl in portland for a focus zx3 there was a few in your price range. as for a job go to select temp let them know what you can do and will put you to work soon, they also do temp to hire jobs as well. let us know whene you get your focus as we are trying to start a focus car club , if your intrested.

If you're patient for a minute you can find pretty much whatever you want. zx3, zx5, sedan, wagon, lowered, stock, tinted. For a 00-04 your budget is very realistic.

http://salem.craigslist.org/cto/3694180860.html

I really like the Salem one.

Sure an SVT or ST would be nice but better to find a car you like but can afford than buy something you can't and add stress to the situation. Only you know what you can spend.

And if you do buy stock this is the right community for getting help with mods.

These two are at a dealer that likes to move volume. Walk in say I have cash, pick one out and offer 2000.00. He may or may not take it but you'll get him to move on it.
