I wasn't gonna say this, but its still nagging at me so I'm going to say this.

KBB is a guide, not a rule. It's meant mainly for mainstream cars not short production cars. EVERYTHING is actually worth what one person will pay for it and another person will take for it.

In this case you're talking about a car that was only produced for three years, and the last 10 years ago. If you find a clean, low miles one the value on it will only go up.

It's also a model of a base car that's popular with every one from still in high school to retired. And only, what, less than 15000 were ever made?

I want a Terminator. Not that I would get rid of the Focus to get it. Same thing they're all super expensive or beaten. But since I have decided that's what I want, at some point I will find the right one and I will pay THAT price.

You should have 4 spare injectors, Matt. I've had a poly dogbone for yrs. I just upgraded my trans mount w/ a vf one when I was replacing the reverse switch.

I hear what you are saying and it makes sense. I am also looking for a Terminator and I have determined I will pay 20-25K for a really clean low mileage one. Which doesn't bother me since I will never get rid of it

That is quite the response. It must have been bothering ya. I use to sell cars and would have to explain that very point. I was frustrated at seeing all of the svts in the 6 to 7k range. I found one that I bought last week that has 118k mi on it and had all of its service records and a clean carfax. I bought it off a guy for 3600 cash. I ultimately found what I was after and got a good deal on it! In one week I have already got it a full exhaust including orp and its on dgrs lol.
