420 hp. Factory Focus?

Tired of kids buzzing around you with their unmuffled chain saws?

Am I the only one who thinks it looks OK? I don't think I'd buy one, but I don't think its nearly as hideous as some of the aftermarket criminal acts I've seen on the road. I think it almost has a Peugot 205 look to it. You guys are probably going to ban me from the board now. I think Ford comes up with some cool stuff on occassion. I really like the "Bullit" edition Mustang, too. And the Contour SVT was kind of cool too, just a little too round in the edges for me, too 90's jelly-bean.

I think it looks fine too.

Expect to replace rear tires about every week or so!

I don't care for the Focus either. It's those headlights. For some reason that style headlight just doesn't look right to me. But alot of car manufacturers are going to that style. Maybe it'll grow on me.
Hey Spock, I used to have one of those "hopped up" Pintos My wife had one when we got married, so I had to make it into something I could stand driving. Kept the 4-banger, but did a cam, header, 4-barrel carb and manifold, electronic ignition, ect. It went like crazy. A real sleeper. But got tired of trying to keep it in one piece. A real POS!

Ok here's the plan, buy one, wreck it (won't take much to total it), buy it back from the insurance company, take out the drivetrain, get a 1966 Mustang Fastback.....get the picture????



Oh shoot, I forgot El Pres is an insurance investigator !!! Never mind!!!! :p

I second that - that is sure enough one fine looking engine. Wonder if it would fit in a W123.
