[Build Log] Blue's New MACHINE!

Recommended Posts

Tricked ya -- not a real mod/build log -- but I did finally get something to replace the Tiger you all love...

 

A 2003 Ford ZX3 :)

 

Drove three hours to take a look at it today and ended up driving it home! 

 

I will say it did have it's first incident on the way home. Of all odds the cooling fan blew to pieces (actually got to keep a piece as it melted to the engine). Pulled the fuse and made it home with the AC off. $100 for the first part -- but she's otherwise in a very beautiful mechanical condition. 

 

Bye bye tiger --

 

PURDY!!

I had no part in this.   :whistling:

 

Liar! :lol:

 
 
Very nice looking car Amanda, should make you a little more respectable. At least more so than the Tiger car. :P

Now to begin the leopard print!

 

3 hours for a Focus though, not that I dislike Focus's or anything...but what's so special about that one?? Was the deal SO good, that the gas consumption was handily justified? (sorry if I'm the debbie downer of the party)

So okay, the reason this car starts out so AWESOME in my book is because I'm upgrading from the TIGER.

 

 

TIGER:

3-speed auto (no overdrive)

Slower than SHIT

Won't break

Not fun

painted like a tiger

4 doors

no trunk springs

hub caps

Awesome stereo

 

 

New Toy:

5 speed

new clutch -- burns tires hehehehe

fun

Faster than Waco's car, easily faster than Onions

2 doors

hatch door that hold itself open

no stereo -- yet

no hubcaps -- real wheels (OMG)

$2000

 

Yes I'm going to mod this little toy -- that's half the fun. Have plans for lowering (duh), a new header and exhaust, revamp the dirty inside, move over my boom boom system, maybe paint? Probably some other stuff along the way...

 

BUT -- first she has to get an oil change and a new belt. 

 

My new toy!!! :D

Only faster than mine in a straight line, and barely. The ZX3, new, would get to 60 in almost 6 seconds. This one's ten years old, I'm not too sure it'll pull that much of a gap with my car or the Miata. :lol:

 

In my opinion, RALLY CAR! :D
