1st gen ford focus = fast, or can get fast easily o.O

Recommended Posts

So it's like half dark out, and I'm in front of a car going up a big hill, I'm going about 52 (speed limit 45) and this car comes from nowhere and passes me and the other 5 or so cars on the hill doing like 8 0+..I later see the same car at walmart speeding across the parking lot, and I just so happen to be leaving at the same time. He speeds off (and does about a 10 foot burnout) from the stop sign going back down the hill, but at the top it's flat for a while. I leave the stop sign right behind him and have to almost floor it to keep up with him* :pardon:

His car was rather loud, although from what I could tell it had a stock exhaust, and only a couple white stripes on it (the car was green) I dunno what (if any) other mods it has, but like I said it was kind of loud, at least for a focus.

So then we get down the hill and to the light, wait for the light to change and I might of followed him a bit, he takes off from the light (another burnout) and I have to floor it this time to keep up.

*I was driving a 96 mercury sable, with the "top of the line" engine.. like at least 50hp more than his focus. BTW, my car is an auto..

Also, his car was maybe like a 2003/2004, 4 door. I don't think it was a manual, at least it sounded auto.

Edit: If it matters, my car only has 70k miles on it.. and before I got it it was owned by an old couple who only put 50k miles on it.

That focus probably weighs in at around 2500-2600lbs and your Sable being 3400lbs... You said he was burning out/speeding around. They are either excited that they just got the car or did some go-fast mods. Assuming those 2 scenarios.......

The set up your talking about would sound great in my Tahoe. Trade you my dog for it. He has one eye but that only makes for bad depth perception so hey so what if he is running into shit, look at it this way he is easy to sneak up ninja style on. (right side only)
