The wagon we had before the Fofo was a Subaru Gl10 turbo wagon...I wish my focus had a turbo.
Speed is only a matter of money; how fast do you want to go?

My last car was a 1964 Coupe DeVille white leather int. with 98 GMC Sonoma metallic purple paint. It was/is an absolutly gorgous car, but alas.....9 miles to the gallon. Need I say more?

Those who would give up Essential Liberty to purchase a little Temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.

Have a nice day from,the Emerald

1st car - It was 1987 when I got my first car, a 1976 AMC Gremlin station wagon, it was dark brown and falling apart from all the rust. It had an inline six and ran like hell. My dad said he was buying me a car and this is what he came home with. He paid $300 for it. Lets just say I wasn't thrilled about it but it got me from point "A" to point "B"

2nd car - I got this one about a year later, a 1977 Ford Thunderbird, tan in color with a 351 windsor under the hood. This is when my modding days all began. I put 15" Keystone Classics on it and Glass Packs for the exhaust. I loved this one, I wish I still had it so I could restore it.

3rd car - A white 1985 Ford EXP two seater. This is the car I learned how to drive a manual with. I got this one around 1989-1990. I lowered it by installing spring clamps, which basically squeezes two coils together. It's funny to me now when I think about. One of those "what was I thinking". The car rode so bad. But remember, this was before the whole import/ sport compact thing took off, so I had no idea what I was doing. I also put 15" rims and tires.

4th car - 1990 Mazda B2200. I bought this one brand new, right after getting out of basic training and tech school. It got the usual mini truck treatment, lowered, lowered again, and then lowered some more until finally it would sit on the ground, thanks to some frame work and a little juice. This picture is after I first lowered it, I couldn't find any of what it looked like before I sold it. It looked alot better than this picture. Not a very good one, but it's the only one I could find.

5th car - A white 1992 Saturn SL2 with all the basic bolt ons.

6th car - A 1999 Mercury Cougar with all the basic bolt ons.

This is why I got rid of this car.

I always loved the way it looked from behind.

7th car - A 1999 Ford Ranger, Baja green. I wanted to slam this one and throw in a 5.0 but the wife and I decided to have another child and I got deployed to Iraq so I sold it.

8th car - A 2001 Ford Focus silver, 4dr SE. This was my wifes car, but upgraded her to a Ford Explorer and I got the Focus. I hated this car cause it was an auto.

9th car - A 1999 Ford F-150 white, 4X4. I loved this truck but it drank too much so it had to go.

10th car - The 2003 Ford SVT Focus ofcourse.

These are my bikes.

Prochargers on Ebay now! Starting bid is $1800.00! Comes w/ extras!

My first car was a truck. It was a 1970 somthing dodge P.O.S. the floor boards were rusted out along with the exterior shell and gas tank, which was located inside the cab, behind the seat. The only nice thing about it was that it had a 400ci big block out of a police interceptor and a posi rear end. In it's better days it ran high 7s in the 1/8th. I loved pulling up to a light in it and beating some of the ricers light to light. After working at a body shop all summer I scraped up enough for a down payment on an 02 SVTF and have enjoyed it since.

Mine was a 1996 Ford Escort LX it had 88 hp and 104ftlb of torque man that thing was slow! But with a manual I could keep it on the powerband for great oompf, and the handling was great, it was green two door, with the sport package. It finaly died one night I lost control and hit a curb at 40mph RIP Green Machine! This hapened about 3-4 weeks ago....
