In the 1980s if you wanted to add performance to a car, the recipe was simple. Ignore those pesky and complicated engine and transmission parts and focus on aesthetics. What you need is a color matched body kit. I guess you could also add a High Output designation to the monster 1.9 liter fuel injected 4-banger that pushes out 108 horsepower, but it must have a wing and a “GT” badge on the back. Find this 1987 Ford Focus GT offered for $7,500 in Santa Rosa, CA via craigslist.
