Just 7 of them. (56k, get a beer...or 6)

I will probably max out my daily bandwidth for photobucket with this post, so if you cant see the pics, just check back the next day.

This post is for ROTM, so please, remember to vote for me. (voting starts Oct. 1)


So...to my knowledge, only FocusOwnersKid has had more than me (he has 9, last i counted)




I have owned 5 AT ONE TIME for a total of 7... Still have 3, techincally 4, as my 3rd one is awaiting final payment from the new owner.

I have no pics of the first one (was traded in) 2000 Forest Green ZX3

Dont have any pics online of the second one online, just some 3x5's from when I was stationed in Germany...2001 CD Silver ZX3 (totaled by a fellow soldier on the autobahn)

Third one: 2002 CD Silver ZX3, that has seen: mild N/A build, wild N/A build, "normal" JRSC, retarded boost (16lbs unintercooled, didnt last long) JRSC, built motor with Powerworks supercharger, then Roush Turboed, then Top Speed turboed, then back to powerworks.....lmao.


Fourth one: 2002 Infra Red SVT....bought with blown motor and JRSC

Fifth one: 2002 Infra Red SVT...parts car for the 4th one, put motor in the 4th one, sold the 4th one, continued parting it out.

Sixth one: 2000 Yellow ZX3....Dallas Mustangs old shop car, and one of the first Foci to ever see boost in the US (was one of Vortechs "test" cars) and also had Dallas Mustangs own supercharger kit tested on it. Then it had a Roush turbo put on. Acquired it after the owner wrecked it in the ice, while runing drag radials (wasnt too bright). Car is currently getting a V8 swap (probably with twin turbos, but i am trying to talk him out of that, lmao).

Seventh one: 2004 Comp Orange SVT...AKA The Pumpkin......JRSC w/BBK 223whp


And yes, all of the pictures of the supercharged, turbo'ed engine are the same car (cept the Comp Orange SVT)



Pics:

Nice pics, but I still don't trust cinder blocks as apposed to jack stands. Seen the blocks crack and fall, lucky no one was under them at the time.
