Couldn't they use the mid 90's ford foci (focuses?) for this? it's not like anybody actually wants them anyway...

At least it wasn't an Alltrac/GT4.

The Focus wasn't released until the late 90's, it wasn't stateside until `99.

Shows how much I know about fords post '69. Still, I would rather have a 90 celica than a first gen focus. there was a time in my life where I had said 90 celica, and my ladyfriend had an 01 (i think) focus. I hated her car.

A probe would work. But my ex-ladyfriend defiantly had a focus.

Spoiler Alert haha....






:wiggle:just got around to watching the first epsiode and If the outline of each episode is the same as the first...which it most likly will be....looks like the Celica is going to win its round...judging by the one screen shot I have...the Crane crushes the car beside the celica..all other cars are just picked up and spiked..they leave the crane crush for the final two haha ( and u can see more cars on the Spike behind it)..which means its the last car standing for that epsiode :laugh:

Just saw it tonight...


SPOILER ALERT








The Celica wins! The shows concept kinda sucks though, a lot of the cars are perfectly good daily drivers needing a little TLC.

An episode of Raise a Roof (DIY, TLC?) should feature my Celica in the near future...
