    If had needed this two years ago I could have hooked you up with a gorgeous Focus ST. I almost bought it myself but it didn't feel a particular need since I had the van and some sporty vehicles at the time.

    No Aveos or Sparks(the automotive equivalent of a backpack and a fanny pack, respectively).

    I know a guy. Let me know if you want to make a serious offer on one and I can hook you up.

    When I see the title of this thread, I sing it to the tune of I Want A New Drug by Huey Lewis.

    I'm not joking. It belongs to one of my sim racing buddies. Last year, he mentioned he thought about selling it. It is not currently for sale, but he might be convinced by a legit offer.

    Very cool! Is it RHD or LHD? Wonder if he had it imported or if it is one of the Sun International cars?

    I think it is LHD. I am not sure. He was in the military, so he may have had it imported. I can ask him tonight. We race together at least twice a week.

    I found a few more photos on his FB feed that clearly show it is LHD.

    Several Cossies sold on Bring A Trailer in the past few years for over $50,000 each.

    Still interested?

    Yeah, I know the cost. Which is why I would ultimately not be interested. The Escort Cossie is a hero car for me but I think ultimately it would be a disappointment for the money spent trying to pry it away from someone.

    Thus if I'm going to spend 50-60k, I would be better off getting a 718 Cayman or 911. Or even spend a little less and just get a first gen Cayman S. If you checked in on it, thanks for doing it. If he ever actually is serious about selling it, I may be interested.
