Well...
Someone from Falls Church, VA contacted me about buying the Focus. They're in their forties and trying to negotiate having the exhaust and interior returned back to stock before buying it for the $7k I have it listed for; they're also completely uninterested in all the extra parts, upgrades and stuff I have in storage. They just want a good car...

So now I'm torn! These folks seem like a bad fit for this car.

Make a deal that if you go back to stock then you get 7k even, no questions asked. Then sell the goods from it like those seats to let say..... Me

I would sell them to you, had I not already worked out something with another member.

... but if you could come up with $200 I might have to explain it away and get it all to you!

I can't help but confuse the sorrow of giving the car up and guilt. The car is uber-solid now and working like a champ; but if it needs service within a month I'm gonna feel bad.

Plus; they just want a good, solid car for daily driving. It's for his wife who crashed her A4 due to a diabetic-blackout. And I'd still need to get a washer reservoir back in there (that'll work around the EDM side markers. It's a tight car that requires more attention in the rain, too... I may need to remove ALL the cross-bracing!

At that point I feel like it'd be a better fit for someone that wants a car like this already!

Run went off without a hitch!!! Eight raindrops, no cops, no miscommunications, great fun, great people!

You had better be there next time with that piece of Pontiac...
