Hey, I've been lurking around the site now for a couple of days. Just bought an '02 Bugeye with 130,000 miles. Got it taken apart in the garage waiting for a timing belt, tensioner, idlers, water pump, and thermostat. Looked like the belt had been changed but not much else. Wanted to start with a clean slate. The car is bone stock and appears to be well taken care of. Silver and clean. Gave 6200.00 for it. What do you think? I figure if anyone's gonna mod it, might as well be me. I'm kind of a purist so I may not do much other than fix it up like new. Great site! Good write up on timing belt replacement, and I probably have the air conditioning expansion valve problem too (good write up on that). I know you guys will laugh but I also have a Ford Festiva and have been a member of fordfestiva.com for years. Great bunch of knowledgeable guys. I'm not such a purist with the Festiva, and have done many upgrades. I enjoy messing with cars and look forward to learning about my new toy and making some new friends.
