1988 Chevrolet Camaro Sport Coupe
2001 Ford Focus 1.6 Zetec
Head to Head
This car is bone stock excluding the wheels. My dad and I bought it to 1) so I could learn to drive a stick. 2) To have a nice project car to practice on for school here (I'm in Auto Body) just a little V-6. it's a nice econo-alternative to the gas hog Monte. haha
What's to say? Fairly high miles (88k as of 01/2007) for its age, but apart from the front bumper being in need of a respray and the wheels showing signs of age/slight kerbing hasn't fared too badly.
Would benefit greatly from actually having some power. Nice enough to drive, handles competently, just woefully underpowered.

'Climate Pack' - Electric windows, electric heated mirrors, heated front screen (so good for de-icing!), air-con, CD player. Mudflaps too.

CD Player, Wheels off of S-10 Extreme
Mods for “Slow-cus”
Nothing exciting (so far) - variable intermittent wiper stalk, map lights, swapped ashtray for felt-lined storage tray (surprisingly useful!). Also added steering column stereo controls and a Puma gearknob - the first is very handy, the second just looks and feels nice. Woo!
Would like 16" Zetec wheels (similar design, but biggerer+nicerer) and -30mm suspension drop. A lot of money for no real gain, better just to buy a faster car...
