First Focus SES Coupe. Granted it is an Automatic (thanks to wife :)) but handling and performance are quite good so far. I prefer a much stiffer suspension and handling, but this is a daily driver. That said I would have preferred that the car sit lower overall. The gaps are just too large in my opinion. This coming from an Acura RSX/Integra platform. Overall fit and finish are excellent and for me require little changing. Seats could be more supportive like my Sparco REV (in our race CRX).
Just the observations of a long time FORD guy.
Age is just a number so I'm told.
I currently drive a CRX in NASA and SCCA HPDE and Time Trials. Focus will see some action too. Previously had a GT-350 and a Falcon Sprint Rallye car.
