• Wow, that is a very clean-looking build. If it drives like it looks, the price is probably quite fair. If this was a wagon, I would be sorely tempted. This would be a nice addition to my current "accidental Focus fleet".

    • I agree the price seems decent for the amount of build time/quality. Then again, the last one of these we featured , which appeared to have been equally well thought out, took a couple of trips to the block before finding a home.

    • I had forgotten the green one. I could not see what it eventually sold for. The parts breakdown on that one sure proved that you are lucky to break even on such a build, excluding all the time and effort. I would like to drive one of these conversions to see if they are "fully sorted" or not.

    • Truly. The weather here is marvelous. And by marvelous, I mean it's hot and humid. But at least there are a few less bugs! You are welcome, anytime. Bonus points for using the word "dude" in a sentence.

    • For summer fun, RWD, but as a year-round hauler, sadly I would have to opt for FWD, due to winter. But if I had a 300+ bhp Focus, it would ONLY be for summer use anyway.

      A few weeks ago I test drive the latest Focus ST. 252 horsepower, and FWD. Once I stopped giggling, I have to admit that I found the car kind of stupid, and the idea of turning it over to "She who tolerates me" scared the heck out of me.

  • I'm trying to figure this one out.

    200 miles on it, and he's selling, and there's not much chance he's going to recover what he's got into it, though my guess is that he scraped together the parts for cheap.

    Definitely built more for a pure-stock-sleeper look than to go fast, right down to the four-lug wheels and the compromised intake setup.

    Might be a lot of fun, might also not be sorted very well and no faster than a chipped WRX. The proof of the pudding is in the tasting.

  • Car was sold today. He just emailed me back…I had asked him why the miles are so low. When he listed it in 2008 it only had 100 miles since the build…so only another 100 miles in 7 years? That's a pretty big red flag to me.
