To say buy an SVT "for a little more $$" is misleading though. There is one posted for 5000.00 firm but it's been there a long time and the price is down to 4600.00 so I'm guessing there's a reason. The only other ones I'm seeing are 6000+.

I've seen all of those, just figured maybe by chance someone knows someone selling a car or maybe other websites to check for cars for sale in Oregon.

I am partial to the 1st gen hatchback, unless the alt on the 1st gen and 2nd gen are that of the same but I doubt it. I have a 250amp ho alt I'm buying and external adjustable voltage regulator for. its for the zetec engine and I know that the alt can bolt on to other vehicles but don't know which ones.

I'm willing to get a sedan but I have no idea how big the opening of the trunk is on the inside of the car is when the seats are folded down. I have 2 Rockford t2d415s that I have to fit in there and if I get a sedan ill want to face them forward and seal off the trunk.

anyone seen any hatchback 1st gen focus with a forsale sign? i have as much as $3000 to spend on it. or know of any decent paying jobs around the salem/dallas area? then plz let me know, im willing to do what ever makes money (preffer legally).

gonna try to check this car out on the 3rd, looks like a decent deal and appears to be in fairly good shape.

http://eugene.craigslist.org/cto/3709998892.html
so the car in this post is an auto... what a shame. however my wife doesn't want another focus so its either a auto focus or something else that's a 5speed. that's the deal... if the guy hasn't sold the car by the 3rd im gonna go take a look at it and give it a test drive. if everything works out ill be buying it.

figure ill use the focus for a family car until we can afford another car and then ill turn it in to my car audio competition car. then ill either put a lentech tranny in it or go with another dream car of mine. ive always wanted a Nissan 240 hatchback built to be a good daily but make people look twice when going down the 1/4 mile. something in the 300s for hp turbo charged.

oh, and there is a zx3 in Corvallis for 3400 with 144k miles and its a manual. since its so much closer then the one in Florence we are going to try and see it today for a test drive. says the time belt, water pump, and a few other thing were just done. I will most likely ask about the vacuum lines and thermostat/housing to. nice blue with tinted windows. got to pull my money out of my Alaska bank account. which by the way is only in Alaska. there is suppose to be a sister bank in Monmouth though so looks like im taking a trip there for sure.

so something came up, price range for a car is 2k or less now. looking at trying to go see a zx3 in Vancouver. its lowered with an intake and exhaust. still waiting to hear back about the info on the parts/brands used for the upgrades.

he is asking 2500 but says he is flexible and it has what appears to be 17"wheels. in which if they are 17s I will be selling for sure. something around 500-700 pending tire and wheel condition. if they are 18s I will most likely sell still but wont be easy as they are the same as mine and I could use a spare or 2 but o well.
