    i preferbly like the zx3 a whole lot better but u have seen some pretty tight focuses, I'd if i had the money would slap ona kit and slam it with some 17-18 inch rims... an exhaust would also make it look a hell of lot more stylish

    You can do absolutely anything you wish to it, and it will still be ugly. Oh well.

    Silentrage does the best vinyl graphic work around, and there are several members on the board if you want to contact them ("paul" is one of them)

    Check the marketplace for 17" rims, they are going for relatively cheap (under $1000) and will dramatically improve your car's looks. There are some gunmetal ones there too that might fit your car.

    SirBeef ! Here ya go

    www.svtoa.ca It's the local SVT OA chapter for Calgary/Edmonton . The Calgary side has just started up. You don't need to own an SVT model, Just a car from the Ford Group.

    Here's another national,popular site..
