Got my first focus about 3 years ago (I was 20)...

My first focus was a 2002 ZX3 Premium 2.0L Zetec 5spd - $7500 + Tax, Tag & Title.

She was 100% stock and I never really modded it ever. put in a K&N Panel filter and ran good fluids in her and just enjoyed her as she was... I bought her when I was 20 and she was totaled just this past Janurary when I was rear ended on the interstate after some rubberneckers decided to STOP to see some cars pulled over, I was hit and then pushed into the moving traffic where I was hit by 4-5 other cars before ricocheting off of a Semi.

She gave her life for mine...








My current Focus...

2005 Focus ST - 2.3L 5spd - 23k miles Paid $8750 Tax, Tag, Title out the door! 100% stock when purchased but have since added Steeda SRI.

I bought this car just about a month ago. I was actually about to buy a 03' infa red SVT 5dr but it had 78k miles and I really wanted something with lower miles... I was also set on that if I was to get an SVT (which I really wanted) that it was going to be a 3dr.... Either way it was a really nice car but I just didn't real have the best feeling about it... one of those gut instinct feelings that you really can't disagree with... It looked good, but something told me that it had been beat throughout it's life... It did have a new clutch and the front tires were pretty chewed up....Hmm....They had a ST sedan on the "certified preowned" section of the same dealership and I saw the ST. I had seen it at the dealership for couple months already, but! I had slept on the "sedan bodystyle" as I just didn't really appreciate it all that much. However though... I was like F' it... I'm seriously about to buy this SVT and I might as well atleast drive this car for the F' of it.... well, just opening up the car and seeing the very near SVT-like interior I fell in love... sleeper look outside, but business inside and under the hood! I won't go on any longer but I loved it, and decided after some W.O.T. rowing thru 1st thru 3rd for the first time (minutes after driving the SVT).

Bought it in September of 2002 right off the lot with only 6 miles on it which 5 were put on by me. I was 28 when I got it and still have it with only 63,000 on the ticker. Rolled it off the lot for just under 10K, stickered for $12,900 but I like to haggle. Helps when you have a killer down payment for it too. 0% financing for 5 years and had it paid off in a little over 2 years.
