Check It: New Project

So,bored the other day,searching Craigslist I found 2001 Ford Focus ZX3 5 speed for the low price of 300.00
That was the basic ad I responded to.
Didn't hear anything for 3 days so I emailed again and that night got a phone call from the seller.
The Car was owned by a older couple.
94,000 miles,1 owner,runs great,trans and clutch good.
Reason for selling the car at that price,low speed bump deployed airbags and the passenger airbag busted the windows.
Here's the pics the day I found Her:

Obviously,I thought there was a mistake.....like the seller wanted 3 grand instead of 3 hundred.
But nope,300 was his asking price.
I couldn't get the money changing hands fast enough.
Drove the Car 40 minutes home and it is a blast to drive.
Quicker than my 2 previous automatic ZX3s even after all the mods I had done.

So,the crazy thing is:
For years I have been buying extra parts.
I have everything except the window and airbags to make this Car mean.
From the vintage Focus Sport valve cover to the FS header plus a full low mile Vortech supercharger.
Putting My daily driven automatic back to stock.
Cannot believe I got this one.
Love the color too!!!

Wow I'm certainly envious. Great find. Good to see you reviving her rather than parting her. Good luck with build.

Thanks Guys,I will def keep this updated and the build should come along very fast.
I almost feel guilty returning the automatic ZX3 back to stock,but with the automatic tranny the Car just will never be what I want it to be.
Even with a good shot of nitrous currently on the automatic,the manual tranny car feels quicker.
Funny because I have a full tranny swap,with Focus Sport short shifter and a stage 2 clutch all ready here that was going to get swapped into the automatic car this spring,but now its just back up for the manual car.
Going to get the airbags this weekend.
Here's a pic of the auto Car,soon to return to stock:
