Not an ST or even a Fiesta, I think you'll like it though.

    So, some of you know my history with these cars, some don't. I've owned A Focus three door since 2000 and my 2002 SVT has been my daily since 2004 and I've been working with you guys online for more than ten years now.

    Since my son is near to getting his license I managed to find something pretty special for his first car, see what you guys think.

    2000 Focus ZX3, 2.0 Zetec, MTX-75 trans, European RS Collections body kit, APC carbon hood, Quaife LSD, SVT Focus discs all around, Hella HIDs and the crowning glory..... An old school Aerocharger Stage 3 turbo kit.

    This is how it looked when we got it,

    This is how it sits today, about a year later, most work done by my son. Still very much a work in progress.

    Here they are all tucked in safe and snug in the garage together.

    Farther-son car projects (even if he did most of the work) are great for so many reasons. Thanks for posting this up for all to enjoy.

    I've been teaching him to wrench for years, trying to help him avoid the painful lessons I learned years ago because although my father and grandfather both worked on cars they never really took the time to teach me anything. Thankfully my son has great mechanical aptitude and catches on quickly, he also knows when he's in over his head and will ask for my advice or help. I've done a fair bit of work on the car too but I prefer to let him do as much as he can.

    Pretty cool last night with both cars in the driveway, swapping the carbon hood on to mine for the summer and both of us cleaning our cars up for the 1st C&C of the year this Saturday.

    I imagine your son will carry on the too many doors family tradition. :p

    He actually doesn't share my extreme dislike of small four door cars but he does prefer a car with the correct number of doors, that being one per side. :)

    Thing is he's only up to about 6'2"-6'3" now which means he can still fit in cars that I have trouble with at 6'6".

    He's not done growing yet! Sounds like someone should resurrect T-tops.

    Made it to Cars & Coffee on Saturday, good time, his car got a lot of attention. Good turnout of Fords too which was nice for a change.

    Had a new 24" Magnaflow welded in this morning and had the rotten flanges at the rear cut off and the pipes welded together, sounds so much better.

    Spent a little time on the car yesterday, replaced the header to turbo inlet pipe gasket and the flex to exhaust gasket.

    This is the header to inlet pipe gasket, this piece of window screen was the difference between 7psi and 10psi. Huge difference in the car.

    Speed holes, makes the block lighter and more aerodynamic.
