I keep seeing a clean 1st gen green ZX3 here in Watertown. Tint, black wheels, stock exhaust, looks to be lowered, but not slammed. Car is clean as a mofo.

Saw a Comp-O SVT ZX3 heading east on Highway 10 somewhere around Waupaca last Friday. My head turned a full 180 to gawk at it. I wasn't driving the SVT at the time unfortunately.

That sounds like that could have been Mike (lanting90.) Let me get him in here.

Cool!! Love the Comp-O SVT's, I considered buying one a while back but not sure I'd like the attention they attract! My wife and I were heading from Hortonville to her parents house in Marshfield for the weekend, we took her red Saturn SC2 so she could drive and I could nap :)

Where did you go for the fish fry, and how was it? We moved out here about 6 weeks ago and I'm always on the lookout for good restaurants to try.

We went to the Trading Post in weyawega. My wife works there once in a while and went to college with the owners daughter. Its good fish though, and cheap.
You live in Appleton or on the outskirts? Waupaca cain of lakes bar and grill has good food to. Monday night wings kickbutt there, and Grimms in wautoma(where I live) has the best burgers around bar none.

As far as attention, most people just see an orange focus, cops dont seem to care either. I love my car though.

I'll take note of those places, thanks! We actually live in Hortonville, about 15 mins northwest of Appleton.

That's what I like about the SVT, its subtle enough to make the average person not notice, yet unique enough to be recognized by FF'ers like us! For whatever reason, my brother-in-law attracts a lot of attention in his plain-jane yellow ZX3. The other day a group of kids in an SUV were trying to get him to race from a light. He just ignored them, so they threw/spit something at his car, could have been gum. He didn't notice 'til I mentioned it, but if he had been in his Mustang at the time, he'd probably be sitting in jail for assault!

Saw a red SVT last night in Milwaukee on Clybourne (sp) waiting at the light by Joey Buona's restaurant.

EAP's, tint, didn't look like much else was done to it.

Was on my way home from Redgranite tonight around 7:30pm on 73 South just outside of Neshkoro and passed not one, but TWO RS replica Foci. One Infra Red and the other Sonic Blue. The blue one looked like it had a big ass FMIC. Both looked to be on coilovers. I was literally in awe lol so I didn't get a great look at them but they were sexy as hell.

If you're on here.. I want your cars and you need to come around more often.
