I just bought a 2000 Focus SE this week, I really like it so far but I can't imagine trying to build a ricer out of it. I really get a kick out of the ricer crowd when they think they actually have something for my modified roller 5.0 powered 63 Mercury. I'm still usually in 1st gear when I can see them in my rear view mirror. My favorite ricer touches are peel and stick hood scopes, NASA lift-off wings and the single wiper arm stuck in the center of the windshield. Personally, I think the cavalier/sunfire owners are worse than the ricer crowd, they love peel and stick anything.
