    Default So, how often do you all see a ZX2 on the road these days?

    As it's now 2018, it has now been about 15 years since even the newest versions of the ZX2 have been produced. Other than my own, I hardly see more than one a month anymore, and they usually look like they've been through a demilitarized zone! Anyone seeing them more frequently?
    And when I came to, I had a VISION! A REVELATION! A PICTURE IN MY HEAD! A picture of THIS! The FLUX CAPACITOR!

    1 a month on the road is pretty common for me too... But the salvage yards I'm always seeing multiples of them each time, and frequently new ones.

    Not counting my buddies car, who I see about once a week, I'd say the once a month sighting holds true for me as well. The usualls are a white one, a blue one and a red one, and a yellow s/r. Newly seen was a black one in the parking lot at a junkyard this past Sat, and talked with the kid that owns it, Ricky. He was lookin for parts to do an interior swap from tan to charcoal

    1 running Ford out of 5 isn't bad, right?

    Fewer and fewer yes, and aside from the ones I've got on the road there's two near me I see quite often. One is an old lady with a white z, and the other is green and looks like shit. I did run into a guy at the gas station a month back with a matching silver z to my daily, the guy and i chatted for a few...his was an auto though

    Gald to see you at Cyb's again. - zx2loon You've earned this one! - Big Mizz

    There are three that I see regularly around here, one is always parked in a driveway (Blue), one is a daytime Walmart employee (also Blue), the other is black with a primer gray left fender. My ZX2 sees the road about once a week, but has not been on the road in over a month due to waiting for a part from Ford. and now has an expired inspection sticker.
    My car is a collectable according to PennDOT

    My car has had two owners: Ford Motor Company and Me.

    At least 3 or more each day. My neighbor has a black one, a worker at a Lincoln dealer near my work drives a green one, and I occasionally see a red or yellow one randomly in-between. Now that I remember there is a grocery store worker by me that drives one too.

    I see two or three a day usually. More in winter, they seem to have reached beater tank status lately.

    I hardly see any here anymore. There was one parked at the old apartments I used to live at, not including my own ZX2 at the time. LOL Other that, I don't see any.
