2003 Ford Focus

It's bland, boring and beige. It's so me.  :lol:

I purchased this from neighbor for $1000. All it needed was a set of front brakes. It's very good transportation appliance. That is about all. Normal Anti-rice will continue in 3...2...1...  :lol:

Transportation appliance is a good descriptor for a Focus.

My '08 certainly isn't exciting, but in 6 years and 50k mi of ownership, all I've done to it is oil changes and a battery.

Appliance yes, but probably the nicest one of that model I've seen.  I've seen tons of that gen that are beat to death!  Even 10 years ago, I knew people that had one that looked 20 years old. :lol:

Those don't even exist here anymore because of rust.

Did I mention it only had 80K miles on it?

Six months ago that previous owner had a new clutch installed at a cost of $1100? She took to a Seattle area car shop that charged her $120 for a oil change? She gave me every receipt that spent on the car from new.

Here are the "Mods" I made to this boring, bland and BEIGE transportation appliance:

New Drive Belt Belt
Two new radiator hoses
Brakes pads on front
oil change and air filter
Gay pride sticker for back window :P
Oh, I put in a OEM CD player radio that cost me $10 at a wrecking yard. Yes, it only had a cassette player :lol:

Worst of all I chip two finger nails putting on the drive belt. And my hands where just so dirty... Enough with the silly stereotype, Gremlin. :lol:  :-*



All those "Mods" Excuse parts cost less than $100. I'm a cheapskate. You know what I mean.   :yup:

Just an "appliance," yet something satisfying about sprucing up a vehicle, especially when it's aged well.

It's nothing special, but...


Update:

A customer of mine did not like the idea that I voted for Donald Trump and after TEMPO Tatum, that TempoBoy would be proud of this happen:


Yes, Ms. Snowflake broke the mirror off my prized transportation appliance. It cost her $92. If she cannot afFORD it. She will have Bend Over & Scrape for the money, because she has to FOCUS her attention on her responsibility and undo the damage she done to my horseless carriage.

I have the most smart-ass four eyed Ford owner in the Socialist Camelot also known has the Emerald city.  :P
