Why he loves his Focus:
"There are many things I like about the Mk1 Focus. When it comes to makers though, I'm not one-sided and appreciate many brands. I bought the focus for it's looks. At the time, the head-lights were something new I've never seen before and with a 6-speed, made it a little more enticing. After several years of driving her, it dawned upon me that this car is great for all-around driving; especially on the clovers and hair-pins. Learning of the RS models deepend my appreciation for the Mk1 Focus, and thus, my plans to do my own conversion began for its aggressive RS looks."

His future plans:
"My plans for the car are getting shorter and shorter with every install that is done. Now that I am quadriplegic, I need to depend on my friends to do everything on my car. So now my plans depend on how much help I get. I have a rather short list now, but it's a lot in terms of hours needed to complete the tasks.

One could say that the list above is mainly for looks, (and it is), but ultimately I'd like to turn her into a full drag racing car, so many many more things will follow as the years go by."
