Please don't encourage him ....its a ugly car that will get him bad reputation and he's 28yrs old no where near mid life crisis...god help everyone then he will probably want an aeroplane
your getting a focus out of it princess
will get me up on a Monday morning and out to work smiling
@Lenny: Will keep an eye out and if I see any new ones will PM you. Did you consider trying to import a fresh one from Japan? Or better, find a nice used model from the UK and bring it over. I reckon there will be a good few more over there than here.
@Vicki: Let Lenny enjoy life a little. He has served his biological purpose already Let him have his toy...ahem project car. The way I see it is, he is a wealth of knowledge already and will be helping out others with his future guides for the next car. That kind of karma goes a long way and it's always good to have some good karma in this lifetime. Plus, it could be worse and he could have chosen to get a golf
Thanks Hassen lol
Check you back, Vicki might have a virtual knife in it mate
Believe it or not, the AE111 has started to go up in price again in japan, because most have been exported,
From what I read on the forum, the uk doesn't have as many of them as Ireland does,
I've saw two breakers from your county who have possession of around five Levine each all dedicated to breaking and spares,
This is fantastic because I can travel in the economical focus to collect parts from within the country instead of purchasing or trying to source from japan,
I appreciate you looking out for a good one, but hold off on that until December because I won't have the funds saved until then, and I'm only teasing myself viewing before I can afford to buy it.
What would your main plans be, keeping stock, track day stuff, modifying, rwd conversion?
.Mainly I'll keep it tastefully modified and in theme with its era, not for track use just for the roads with sweeping bends,
It will be for the occasional trip to work, when Vicki needs the focus, and for weekend drives in the country,
My main plan is to restore the interior for example if stock speaker grills were missing or dash was badly scratched I'd try to source parts to get it back to like new,
