2002 Ford Focus, sold it when I went to college... ended up buying my money soon after with the cash.

I can't find any pics right before I sold it, but I had an SVT rear bumper, side skirts, and a front lip, along with projector headlights and 20% tint all around.





Oh yeah, and it had a 65 shot.


EDIT:
Found this somewhat more recent picture:

First car I ever hit the track with. Borrowed my mother's SVX a week after I turned 16 to hit some autocrosses. I worked on it lightly, changed the oil, rotated tires, all that stuff. I still want a manual turbocharged one someday.


This was my first car, my daily driver. Purchased for $800 6 months before I turned 16. It never had problems, always ran great, this car was solid. In it's later years I started taking it drifting and autocrossing for the hell of it. It was also the main character's car in a short film a friend of mine from school was making. It was totaled a week after filming, a girl did a U-turn in front of us, I t-boned her, then we were rear ended by a 330i or something. I was the only person not at fault.




My first car just to hit the track with. Super beater $500 fb. Pretty much stayed the same in appearance, beat the crap out of it on track. Springs, struts, swaybars, bushings, straight pipe, 12a motor. Eventually I swapped this 12a into a nice bodied fb and sold it to get the miata.


I purchased the miata around this time.

Our 24 hours of lemons Starion. We sold it recently, that car was a piece of ****.




I had this 1972 Toyota Celica last year as well. A friend contacted me, said he was going to Seattle to pick up a celica he wanted, but the guy had two. This one, which ran but was a piece of junk, and the other which he claimed was in better condition but did not run currently. My friend only had a one car trailer, so he purchased the nice one and towed it back, I drove 14 hours in this $500 beater that didn't have a starter, no seatbelts, nothing, all the way back to Utah. I daily drove it through the winter, it was kind of a fun car. Eventually i welded the diff, put my sportmax on it, and went out to one of our local drift events to beat on it. I tried forever to sell the car and was getting terrible offers. I just lost interest in it for some reason. It was online for 2 months while daily driving it, eventually I just decided to drift it. 2 weeks after drifting it I had pictures of it sideways, posted those in the ad, the car sold in less than 2 hours and I ended up making a profit.
