The owner before me beat the hell out of that car. When I purchased it, the guy had put a new clutch in it, and only used ONE bolt in the bellhousing to hold the trans to the motor, and one bolt for the starter. It stripped the splines right out of the clutch disk, and his buddy told him the trans blew up. The Recaro seats in that one are also shot, I could tell they were never cared for and one was ripped, and the back seat someone dumped red and blue paint all over. Everything else on the car was rigged in one way or another.

I prayed I would never see that car again, but the guy brought it to the shop I work for, and had me work on it.
How much for one of those foci in the yard? I want a beater I can fix and I don't have much money.


Edit: At school and we pulled the head off of a 2005 focus sedan. The intake valves had been hitting the picton and apparently something fell in the intake and banged the no. 1 cylinder pretty nicely. Anyway we have to replace every single valve, and put it back together in like three days having two hours a day to get it done.

Hey guys sorry this is being posted a little late, but I wasn't sure I would be able to get the weekend off. Thought my WI peeps would like to know that there's a car show coming up on Sunday July 3rd in Sheboygan Falls. I think it would be neat to have some Foci in the show because I NEVER have seen any (not even SVT Foci) at the show and I think it would be interesting to have and a great mini-meet as well. I am for sure going to this though! If any of you are interested here is the website to get more info:

Sorry again about the short notice

We'll be out of town as well...going up to my Grandpa's in Minnesota for the weekend. 4th of July weekend is never good for us either, as we're either traveling or up in Door County camping.
