Well here is another Focus wreck thread, seems to be a lot lately.

Halloween night a driver behind me on the highway didn't notice that traffic was slowing down and plowed right into me going about 75mph.

My girlfriend and I walked away with just a little soreness for a couple days. I was surprised how well my focus took the impact. The exterior damage doesn't look too bad, but the frame was completely warped after the accident.

The car was totalled, but now I have a CD Silver '04 ZTS to play with. I'll be sure to post pics soon!

glad to hear your both ok :) thats the first thing that counts but I have to ask cuz if I don't someone else will LOL... wheres your old car now ?!?!?!?

by the wrinkling of the quarts in FRONT of the rear tire I'm shocked your driver door opened ( if it did, you didn't say) and your right tho to the naked eye that car looks repairable but to a person who's worked with body shops that cars a mess on the underside

and Post pics of the new one :D

the insurance company took possesion of my car (after i went to their lot and took back my clear corners, interior neons, etc...) but they cut me a pretty nice check, enough to pay for the new focus outright. I'm glad I kept it in the family and got another focus.

Feral: the drivers side door opened and closed after a few tries, with a lot of force. the entire drivers side of the car was crunched forward.

Any ideas for some starter mods? I haven't had any experience with a pre '05 focus, a focus sedan, or 5spd for that matter...

Thinking about some nite shade on the tails....I like how that looks on silver cars.

I'm going out to take pics of the new car right now...

Ok here's the new ride!

The only problem is a small hole in the rear bumper. The dealership had some duct tape over it, which is still there til i figure out another solution. I plan on de-badging the trunk this weekend.....gotta start somewhere!

well they were asking $8000 and I talked them down to $6400. Then he wanted to charge some sort of $100 dealer fee and I suggested we should just leave it where it is and that will make up for that hole. I was pretty happy with the deal I was able to get. I got it from a dealer for under the KBB private party value.
