Talking Longtime Lurker in Chicago. Need more posts to sell my 2004 SVT

Hey All,

I've been a member for about 9 years, bought my current Focus from another member, but have never posted much. Well, I'm getting ready to sell my 2004 Sonic Blue SVT, but since I don't have 25 posts, I can't yet post it in the Buy - Sell -Trade forum.

So, I'm starting this thread to help get me there! Feel free to chime in with any questions/comments as I struggle to get to 25 whole posts!

Some Basic Info on my 2004 Sonic Blue SVT:

-3-door hatchback
-Bought from another member on here (see my post history)
-98k miles
-Runs Great
-I've averaged about 6,250 miles a year on it
-Looks...less than great: This car has lived the last few years on the streets. Paint chips, a few small dents, and a foggy headlight.
-Also, the hood is weird. Looks fine, works fine, but the plunger that pushes the hood up when you pop it doesn't work. That means you've gotta pull the hood lever while someone else pulls it up.
-Snow tires are on. Summer tires are not available, due to a well-timed flat in November, and the decision that it was time for new summer tires anyway.

The most metal car ever....NOTHING.

...seriously though, I barely drive any more. I live in Downtown Chicago, so parking can be a real pain in the ass. I walk to work. I walk to the grocery store. I take cabs or public transit to get most places in the city. So I'm going to get rid of my gas/insurance/maintenance costs, get a ZipCar membership with no monthly fee for the times that I need a car (sidenote: the closest zipcar to me is, you guessed it, a Focus), and start saving now for a new car when I eventually live somewhere with a garage.

Hooray.

The spirit of Vaboom lives on! He was a great dude to meet. I wish I could say that I took as meticulous care of the car as he did, but hey, I'm not a diesel mechanic!

Never did the timing belt. In fact, you just got me to read through Vaboom's whole post again! I had forgotten about it, and it's just never come up.

you will need to get pictures hosted on a site like flickr, imgur, photobucket. The use the link that ends with .jpg and separate the link between [img] [/img] tags


Just quote this post and see this below code:
