hey shonut! i do agree the 6's were a lot better, especially if mated with a manual transmission... since mine is a 97 it does have the V8 and is an automatic... it's in pretty nice shape though for the age but has an intermittent stalling problem that is frustrating me to the ends of the earth! sounds tough as nails though and is a lot of fun to drive... also, one of the more comfortable cars that i've owned... wish the 3rd gens would have come with fog lights too but no dice...

I go to the Beloit cruise night/burnout pits every year. Love doing that, had my truck in it this year.
awesome, i will definitely meet up with you at one of the shows next year then!

Explain the stalling out a little more in detail. I might be able to help with more info.

hey shonut,

it seems like after the car warms up a bit, it would like to stall out at stop lights and stop signs... as the speed would decrease, the rpm's would fall and just stall out... it would restart "fairly" easily each time... also last fall, i had a coil pack go bad while on the interstate... it didn't like that very much either... had the coil pack replaced and thought maybe we had fixed the problem, but no, it still does the stalling thing... i've replaced the MAF and idle air speed controller too... that did nothing to help it either... it's a decent car and i'd love to put some more miles on it but i just don't trust it out of town at all...

i may not be a focus owner anymore, was doing some stupid shit first snow fall, long story short, hit ice. tried to dodge a tree, hit curb, just hit the tree with my tire. no body damage just tire. but it pushed it up into my passenger foot well :/ broke the axle and lower control arm, sure i bent the strut too. 3 of the 4 rims are bent :( sad day.

BUTTT im looking at a 300zx with 46xxx miles on it, with the vg30dett in it, one owner!!!! if my insurance says totaled im getting that. otherwise if they can fix it for 3 to 5 grand ill be driving a focus again.

Funny, i was just wondering today what you were up to Derek! What would you sell the ST as it sits? Or is insurance dealing with it?
