Street Parked- Supercharged Road Racing Street Legal Rally Owned Focus- For Sale…No, really!

Yep, I did put all of those words in one title. Yes, it is all true too.

I just found out that this road-racing prepped 2001 Ford Focus is up for sale. The surprising part is that I also know the person who is selling it!

The owner is Don Wooten, who was my rally driving instructor when I went up to DirtFish Rally School. I first met Don when I was racing in Solo II autocross, and he was using this same car. It pulls at the racer heart-strings to see it go.

Don’s a really great driver, and he always takes good care of his cars, so I wanted to write a quick feature for him to help get the word out.

It always sucks to find out that a local racer has to sell his beloved ride.  However, that is always a new buyer’s gain, as that means is that the car is always excellently prepped and has a good build history.  (I learned that lesson when buying Kyoko.)

The crazy part about this car, is that it is street-legal! Can someone say “Race car for the road?!” If I had the money, I would buy this and turn it into my road racing car.
