What car did you own before your Focus?

I just want to see what everyone was driving before they bought their Focus. If you have pictures that would be great as well. Mine was a 97 Ranger 4.0L AT. It had a Flowmaster exhaust and a MAC intake, 4 Alpine Type R's 5x7 (which I'm selling) and an Orion amp. I loved her but she started to need repairs monthly so it was time to let her go. Here's a pic. http://i43.photobucket.com/albums/e3...e/7fd0fe84.jpg

Don't waste another minute waiting on parts, or anything else. Just get out there and start racing! You will suck at first, and you will be slower than many other cars, but the only thing you will regret is not starting earlier...

I got my liscense June 1, 2005.

I drove my 1991 S10 in which was heavily modded for a week. At this point in time I was sick of this project, and coming big into the stereo world. I sold it.

Then for a couple of months I drove a 1997 Mitsubishi Eclipse RS (non turbo). It wasn't so stock either. I drove it from June 7-September 8 when I bought my 02 SVT.

The car I drove before I got my SVTF was a 1999 Escort Wagon with nearly 200K miles on it. Before that, way too many to list but my faves were the 79' Trans Am, 98' Trans Am and 2000 Grand Prix GTP.
