Long story short, walking home from a party with a couple friends (we were all underage) we were stopped by a cop and after a few questions he told us we were all drunk. *Insert line* He laughed, cuffed us and put us in the car. Only to let us out down the street in front of my buddies house. Best/worst ride home ever.

Morning errybody.
fired up the diesel again yesterday after a month or so of not driving it. got it started right back up (love these things for their simplicity) was letting it warm up in the driveway before I drove to the store last night. came back out 10 minutes later to a huge pool of coolant under the car!

EFF. not sure if its the headgasket or what I just shut it off and drive the silver car so I wasnt late.

how low do you want to be?

I know vw stuff better than focus stuff since its been so long since I've owned a focus that new kits are coming out all the time. probably I'd suggest the coilovers that blake bought.

and there is no such thing as good wheel adapter under $50 per corner. especially not for the focus.

bolt pattern conversions or $300+ adaptec adapters are you only options that I'm aware of.

I know right! total rip off.
its not like the mobility of the entire 2400+ pound vehicle relies on them......as well as the invaluable lives inside the car.......

20mm is almost 1 inch by the time you put the wheel on you will have no threads remaining to screw the nut on, you need extended studs for wheel spacers.

what bolt pattern do you want to run?

also not sure if you were talking to me or which car you wanted pictures of?
First Car: 94 chrysler town and country shaggin' waggin'
rocking sound system some blue neon interior lighting and classy silver painted trim. girls loved it.
Second Car: 89 grand am POS wouldnt go 70 unless you floored it, paid $500 sold it for $700 never looked back.
Third Car: Full Bolt-ons ford racing stage 2 cams lowered on tein springs

Fourth Car: powerworks supercharger eibach pro kit lowered

Fifth Car: crazy rally headlight setup you could see clearly for over 1 mile if the road stayed straight, dropped using fat kids and a couple cute girls:

Sixth Car: only one I didnt own long enough to take a picture of so google will work, turbo inline 5 cylinder seated 8 with a rear facing 3rd row. still wish I had that car.

Seventh car (still own and daily drive it) Jetta, not this low any more but this was last summer. this years its all race car no show car:

Eighth car: Current toy/project. only pictures I have are from the day I bought it, should have more pictures soon.
