I don’t know about you guys, but ive been looking at the Ford Fusion lately, and i think i might be sold. It may not be the fastest small car out there, but i think it looks pretty bad ass. I have yet to see one up close cause the dealers around here havent gotten them in, but i quote them as saying " they should be here any day now, they may even be here today" I just think it looks like a really solid car. What you guys think?
P.S. That Ford Iosis from frankfurt auto show = WOW
Polo and I were supposed to go test drive one together… but our plans fell out at the last minute, due to various reasons.
they look like a sweet car.
Well I have a Mazda 6, and I think it’s pretty much the same car. If it’s anything like mine, it’s a sweet car. The ride is great. The six speed auto is pretty good, but I kinda wish I had the manual trans. Mazdaspeed is supposed to release a supercharger this year, so watch out for that on the Fusion.
It’s a solid car. If you got the extra $$$ I’d go with the Zephyr. But the Fusion and Milan are a sure bet.
Yea, I pulled into a Ford dealer today and they had one out w/ the hood up and everything to see. I didnt look at it cause I was there for parts for my rear brakes. O YEA, When I pulled out back to the parts center, GUESS WHAT I SAW!!! ANOTHER YELLOW S/R like mine!!! But it had different 17" rims, WW kit, 2 12" kicker Solo subs… I went inside and was talkin go the guy at the parts desk about what I needed and I found out that it was his car, I started asking him what all he had done to it. He just dropped 15grand into it. He got the head ported and polished along w/ 3 angle valve job w/ oversized valves. He also has a Crane? full ignition system. Crane cams, full header and custom exhaust all the way back to the “stock” borla muffler. I asked him if he could start it up, AND HE DID, lol. It sounded SWEET, I COULDNT BELIEVE IT, It had suck a deep agressive sound compared to mine. The idle was rougher cause of the cams. I WANTED TO SWAP CARS ON THE SPOT!!! But anyhow, they had the new Fusion there.
sweet! did you pimp zx2ms?
FO SHIZZLE DAWG!? DID YA!?
<—Definitely white lol!
Don’t S/Rs only come in yellow and aren’t there only like 500 made a year? something crazy like that?
There were some reds and blacks made also. But yes, most were yellow.
Was not aware of that, good info, thanks.
In 1999 ford produced 500 Zinc Yellow ones and only distributed them in Cali as a testrun. It worked well, so they made 2000 more S/Rs for the year 2000. 1000 of them were Yellow, 500 black, and 500 Red, in 1999 the intakes were different and so were the shifter boots. But yea thats it.
