Got some sad news today. The focus went in for inspection and definitely did not pass. the tires aren't doing too great, the Check Engine light is on, needs a new Axle Boot, brake hose, coolant hose, and exhaust hanger need to be welded on. I'm in college now and really don't know if I'm willing to keep dumping money into a car with such high mileage. As much as i hate to say it, selling the car would be an option for me at this point. i would love to keep it, and rebuild it when i get time but unfortunately my time and money needs to be in school, not in my car. So, what do you guys think? if anyone has any interest at all, send me a PM.

None of that sounds all that bad and most of it sounds cheaper than buying another car. What happened to your zx3? I beat the crap out of mine.
