This one is either funny or sad:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=2410056940&category=31835
and more details:
http://www.myfordfocus.com.50megs.com/index.html
(On his "genealogy template" web site)

161 hp at the wheels? 172 hp at the wheels with special timing adjustment?

And the car's biggest claim to fame?
"THIS DOES HAVE AN SVT BOTTOM END IN IT"
Uh huh.

Another item. I understood that there were no SPI-equipped Focii with Tachometers? What about this car?

I have an SPI automatic with a tach. I did have to do the speedo/tach swap from a ZETEC, though...

where are the SVT parts?
Looks like a rice-ified zetec to me. must be the wing that adds all that power. no wait, I forgot. YELLOW = HP.

161 at the wheels would be more than a GSR... they're 170 at the crank.

EDIT... I emailed the bidder with the following...
Don't buy that car!!!! I can guarantee that he's not got an SVT Engine in there... If you'd like pics of SVTs... please go to Focaljet.com or email me for details. I'd be happy to help keep you from being ripped off!

no wait guys!! if he was a liar, he wouldnt have these!!!



"these rims were made for me by the svt team you will not find these kinda rims no where . the color on the rims match the color of the car exactly. also the vinyl on the windows ( front and back ) were color matched to match the car exactly . the rims have little wear but not noticeable from normal wear and tear but are in excellent condition , the tires are brandnew less than 200 miles on them all are z rated tires top of the line"

He seems to be pretty proud of that rusty header. If I took my heat shield off, I could have one just like it

Yea, I posted this in the SVT forum yesterday.

Got this from him last night.

i do understand what you are saying i have ended this auction because all this heat i am taking no one will buy the car just because there are so many non believers i didnt realize how hard it would be to sell the car . i have no reason to lie i didnt pay for nothing on this car thats why im selling just for what i owe on it . but there are a total of about 30 cars that are done like mine that ford has customized i know of one in california but they have the 6 speed tranny in it .

this is my exact email i sent to him i will post his resonse when i get an email back

"ok i saw your ford focus and i wanna say WOW thats.....
NOT an SVT ok dude im not trying to be mean but are you stupid??. you have a ZETEC. ok here are some areas you might wanna rethink
1. APC makes them tails. They made oh millions of them
2. That is a ZETEC not an SVT.
3. You CAN buy them rims almost ANY where.
4. Screamin Deamon = about .00004 hp @ the wheels
5. The header = stock ok everyone knows that!
6. OH yeah PS. They didn't make an svt with this type of 4 door. only the ZX5. and don't tell me this is a zx5.

i am a member of a focus car club dont' B.S me ok!"

Reply this message and tell me why you say all this.

I am speechless! I cannot believe that someone this full of it is allowed to be let outside on his own!! He needs to be locked in a cage. No wait, a cage is to civilized. He needs to be locked in a Dodge Neon.

ARRRRGGHHH!!! This moron makes me so mad!!!! I would like to take that MTX-75 (the best tranny ever made) and shove it up his 2.25" custom exhaust!!!

This is the kinda guy who street races for fun and kills people!

I think we should take him and tie the stupid wing to his back and drop him from an airplane at 10,000 feet and see if it helps him any.

On the plus side, we have his license plate... Anyone here work at the Florida DMV?

Maybe not... but some people should just be smacked.
