Thumbs up Love my mk1 focus zx3 premium

I have had a lot of cars before and they have been fun, but not such as mk1 focus zx3 premium with abs and sunroof and svt brakes
I have the money to buy a brand new focus st. I went to the dealer and didn't like it when I test drove it, even if it is faster then my old mk1. Guys who has this problem? I have money to get a new car but I am still investing into mk1 and every time I look at it I always smile wth!!

I have 2 foci 2001 and 2003 - I rebuild an engine in 2001 and clean it as I could
2003 will be for sale as is, but there is no way I will sell my 2001 foci such a good car

I already spent 6-7 k for turbo engine and parts that seats in my garage and I am going to turbo it so I can have more fun and even do it is mk1 - 12 year old car it is still nice and fun to drive car then even 2013 foci st - at least for me
am I crazy?

it's just like guys who spend thousands of dollars on old mustangs and stuff. they could buy 3 new ones with the money they have in their 1 '69, but they don't care. drive the cars you love, not the cars everyone else tells you to love.

I've been trying to sell my mk1... but there isn't another car I've driven (in that price range) that feel that great! It positively SPANKS corners; or other cars IN those corners.

I wanna get rid of it for something faster, but I know the replacement won't handle this well; AND I never got close to the endgame for this car. SVT brakes sitting in the basement, turbo parts getting sourced. I can't bring myself to sell it now: NO WAY I sell it after these upgrades!!!

You, sir; are damn-sure not the only one!
