I haven't been on this site in months, since I got my 2012 focus.
Good to see a thread I started months ago, is still popular!
I miss this place. The focus board is nowhere near as fun
Going in order first car to current car
1995 ford escort lx aka sexcort Junkyard
1966 ford mustang fastback sold
1979 ford f150 custom 4x4 still have
1965 chevy chevelle 2dr still have
1978 ford f150 2wd 429 saved the drive train junked the rest
1997 ford ranger 4x4 4.0 Still have
1968 Mustang Coupe (first car) - Started life as a 302 V2, 3 Speed Automatic car. It was 80% done when I sold it, by then it was 351 Cleveland 2V and FMX 3 speed automatic.
1979 Mustang Cobra - Had factory sunroof. I added some American Racing Wheels (15x7/225-50-15). It was automatic so I got the crappy 255cid V8. After my buddy dropped a screw down the carb, we swapped in a roller cam '85 GT engine. I had to add the double hump cross member for true dual exhaust. First experience with nitrous on that car - [email protected]
1989 Izusu I-Mark RS (Traded In the Mustang) - One of 25 cars White sedan with Sunroof and Recaro seat option. This was the start of my involvement the Sport Compact movement which officially started in Southern California around 1985-1986.
It was much faster than its direct market competition. 125hp/102ft when the Civic Si was 109hp, Escort GT 108hp, Cavi Z24 2.8L 120hp
Great car would love to own another one or even its replacement the Stylus XS which was up rated to 130hp by then (1991). However they are hard to find without a ton of rust damage and when they go on sale they don't last long.
Mazda B2300 Extra Cab - 6" Cerwin Vega LE 12" subwoofers (dual voice coil), Soundstream Class A 5.0 and Soundstream Class A 3.0. Rated power [email protected], let's just say its about 6-7 times that at 1/2 ohm. I also had one of the first generation RF Series 1 4 channel amps in that thing... For being rated at 50x4, it did pretty well... That was when I downsized the system. AIM dropped I-beams, ST springs (4" drop), 2" block, flipped overload (3" drop), 17" wheels.
Dodge Neon base sedan - 2nd owner car belonged to the dealer's daughter. Had A/C and PS which is considered "loaded" for the base car. But it was light, 2350lbs. Second experience with nitrous since the aftermarket was limited. But I was a key part in the development of what aftermarket exist for Neons. I'll tell that story someday here. Not much, 15x7 wheels, 195/50-15 Yokohama tires, great traction for a car with NO sway bars but true IFS and IRS which wasn't common for an American compact car then. 70hp shot, [email protected] traction challenged...
1998 Dodge Neon ACR - Dealers had a hard time selling these cars. Bought new but they wanted to get rid of it, got a great deal. Even came with the Koni adjustment knob. Was loaded since A/C and a CD Player were the only options. Ran [email protected] with Iceman CAI (Mopar Performannce version), MP SOHC PCM and Edelbrock RPM muffler. I should have made more changes but never got around too it, I made the payments but the car was in my GF's name, so when we broke up, she got the car.
1995 Dodge Neon Highline - A/C, Cruise, Power Locks. Got a great deal on Jamex springs on closeout with matched struts. Was the inspiration for Project Neon featured in Sport Compact Car Magazine. They didn't listen to me and threw me under the bus. The inside baseball of the automotive aftermarket and the media that covers it isn't all its cracked up to be. Used to prototype Headman header for Neons, though my header was much closer (better) to the Pacesetter header than the final production model.
2001 Dodge Neon R/T - The PCM tune on this car is more forgiving than '02 and later R/T's. This car was used to prototype AEM CAI for RT's and Thermal R&D axle back muffler, want the part numbers??? Dead stock - [email protected], [email protected] with intake and exhaust, California Speedway just isn't a fast track, ask anybody...
1995 Dodge Neon Highline - '01 RT/ACR Magnum SOHC Swap (150hp), never drove with engine, long story. Loaded, sunroof, cruise, power locks and roof rack.
1995 Dodge Neon Highline - Milled head (10.2:1), MP street header (CARB EO) not installed, Progress Springs, ES full poly kit. Drove for awhile never finished.
2003 Ford Focus ZX3 (2.3L PZEV) - Ford wanted it back because they wanted another $1,000 down to get the loan. Oh well, gave it back and got....
2003 Dodge Neon SRT-4, it has a car domain page I'll link it later.
2002 Mazda Protege 5 (Chrome Yellow), 5 speed!
*Wrecked on the day of Micheal Jackson's Death, June 25th 2009
Now nothing, even sold my Tamiya RC cars....
Which one? I've been a member of Focaljet for since 2002?? Focusfanatic since 2003.
Both are sort of subdued but FF is better, more "hardcore" people on it.

yea i am jeep lover and ford too
It's been great for us. Good on gas, options are amazing for the price, ride quality is great as well. Only complaint I have with it is the actual turning radius, but for normal cornering and such it's perfect. We did the AWD model because of weather here, and have yet to require it, but I can't really pick out a flaw with it other than power. It's great for normal acceleration but a little slow when accelerating at 80+ km/h (50) i.e. passing
I have been told that the 6cyl is much better for this though.
Felina...Probably the most jealous of the '72 Grand Torino Sport you owned. lol They were cool.
:lol: my first car was a 1980 Dodge D50 pickup ($100) 15 yrs old!
My second car was a 1988 Pontiac Grand Am turbo (free/ b-day present) 17 yrs old
Traded that car in on a brand new 95 Ford Probe SE ( $16,000) 20 yrs old
when I turned 28yrs old I bought a second vehicle my 91 Escort GT ($2000)
it only had 89K on the odo.
Bought my wife a 2006 Suzuki Forenza new ($17,000) car was stolen a yr later.
Bought my wife a 06 Ford Freestyle ($12,000) with the insurance money in 07
In 2009 sold my Probe and bought my 95 Escort Pony for $300.
and in 2012 bought a 95 Escort LX wagon for $100.
So to date I own a 2006 Freestyle
1995 escort pony
1995 escort lx wagon
1991 escort gt
Insurance is so cheap I might buy another GT.
