Default Tokyosmash! buys ANOTHER Focus, this one is special though

For almost 2 years now Iíve been searching for the perfect SVT Focus, I wasnít willing to settle for any reason, not mileage, not condition, nothing. A few months ago I stumbled on to this car, just about every seal, every gasket and all wear items replaced a few hundred miles before I took possession of it, so now I have an 03í ZX5 SVT, number 1737 of of total production, it had 48,300 on it when I picked it up 2 weeks ago :eek:



Itís been a long time since Iíve had something that felt this raw and was so engaging to drive but every day it makes me happier and happier, the smooth and fast revving engine, slick 6 speed, factory HIDís in 03í. On to pictures





Iím a born and raised Marylander, in 05í I moved to Southern Pennsylvania and wouldnít you believe that this is where the car came from, on paid medical leave having had shoulder surgery a few weeks beforehand I jumped on a plane and flew to Baltimore on a Saturday night, Sunday morning my best friend and I were on the way to Waynesboro, PA and 2 hours later I had arrived to pick up the car.



Then I went to my friends and cleaned it up


I then did what any person born and raised in MD would do, drove it to the beach. A friend of mine is on Big Brother this season so we all packed in her parents time share to watch it



Man, what a view. I missed this.




After a few days of relaxation I headed back to PA to get donuts and then took a route thru West Virginia instead of my normal route and enjoyed the view







After an uneventful drive it was finally back in Tennessee amongst the rest of my Foci.



Thanks for looking

This thread is Flavio approved. One of his "sleeper" cars to retire off of.

Now you need to add a ZX2 S/R to the collection.

Nice! Glad you’re happy with it!

All those people watched Big Brother? lol. I’ve never seen it but I thought it was like Jersey Shore. Am I wrong?

Nice score Ben. These cars are so fun to drive. I miss mine at times. The steering and handling did it for me. But the turning radius.....jesus

My only major complaint about the ST, still has the same turning radius, it blows!

It's legit about a 4 point turn or so, I am embarrassed sometimes!

STi handles U-turns no problem even not going full lock (have to swing a bit wide but it'll make it)

WTF Ferd

Not sure the fascination with these. They're as exciting as an EP3 with matching looks.

Plenty of better choices available in 2003 for the same money.
