Cool Kona

so i had this run down taurus, on its last lim. was my daily driver while i parked my mustang for the winter. some guy shows up with a kona focus and wants to trade me. 2000 with 127k for my 96 with 168k. its clean, 5spd, a real nice car. the taurus was rusty with a trans that sliped, suspension gone, and an oil leak. so yea i got rid of the rust bucket and ended up with a pretty nice ride.

well needless to say i sold my mustang with intentions on driving the focus year round.

so then today i go to a focus scrap yard looking to replace my driver side door panel and the people there where going nuts, almost like they never seen one before....

are they really that rare? whats different about them? the only differences i noticed where the kona badges, kona flormats, and tweeters in the door... am i missing something? is a kona that big of a deal? or is it just one of those models where not many where made?

Welcome first off. They aren't anything crazy but they are kinda rare. Didn't they come with a roof rack and mountain bike?

They are definitely very rare!

I've only seen a couple before... But I really like them alot! I would take care of it and keep it for a while.

I miss my old 2002 zx3.
