VEHICLE STORY

SVT Focus with a salvage title bought from a fella's mom. Intentions were to replace my old Escort ZX2 with something that has a manual trans and is also fun to drive. Kinda junky when I first bought it, hood & hatch had rust holes in them, front sheetmetal and grille etc didn't line up. Lots of time and work put in to 'restoring' this car. Very fun, not very fast. Frankenstein score: 13 UPDATE 01/26/20: I have been off of this platform for quite a while, during which I've done quite a bit with the car. Since the last time I've posted here, I have installed 'new' front and rear subframes with a full polyurethane suspension bushing kit, H&R Race kit lowering springs mated to Koni Yellow adjustable dampers, and repaired my airbox. This car is fully built for an autocross event. I just need to find time to get out there.
