Good idea, but you should've probably posted this in the Southern Fanatics Forum. That's what those regional forums are for. There aren't many Memphis Focis on here. I'll try to drag the wagon there, but all that depends on whether I figure out my steering issue. Lately I've been so busy playing maintenance man and fixing my wife's car that I haven't had time to fix my own car or my van.
It's a shame we can't get a track somewhere, I'd like to see how the van stacks up against ATX Foci... LOL. Maybe I could win some money.

Memphis moter sports speed park has a road course and a quarter mile drag strip and I posted it here is to get some other foci involved and there are quite a few Memphis foci on here we just lay low

Great! I look forward to meeting other Memphis Focis.
My wife can't drive yet. so I'll keep the Focus-killer van at the house-LOL. My car is not modded at all unless you count the Windstar roof rack I replaced the stock rack with and the cone filter I clamped on the MAF.

^ After rocketing up 78, I suggest you get off at Hacks Cross/Bethel Rd exit, and take a right (you'll see a Flying J for a landmark), after about 8 miles through Olive Branch's industrial district that will lead you to Hacks Cross/385 junction and you'll cruise past my crib on the way to 240/40. This way might be easier than going up 78 to 240 although you'll hit a couple of bottlenecks around the state line because MS and TN can't seem to get it together to 4 lane that one all the way.
If you do decide that's too far out of your way, then I'd suggest taking the Perkins exit N (rt) from 78 to get to 240- there's only like 2 stoplights to hit before you get to 240. It's much quicker than going up 78 through the red light district. The Perkins exit will come after several stoplights and will seem out of place because it's more like an interstate entrance/exit. Perkins has an overpass over 78- the only overpass after you enter TN. It's a local truck route to warehouses.

Do I have to clean my car? LOL
I washed and waxed the darn thing the other day and now it freaking rains [:(]
HEY which side of Wolfchase? Do yall want to meet around the back side, front side, or just drive around until you see a Sonic Blue wagon with tint- I promise there isn't another one [:D] I'm going to bring my wife too so she will probably tell everyone how cute their cars are LOL

So where was everyone? I showed up and met SirJohnW, we hung out for about 45 mins or so, and then decided to go home. Next time maybe we should exchange phone numbers.

let's try this again and maybe we can get some people to show up.

If you're going to try it again, then we should swap phone numbers in PM, and for goodness sakes text or call everyone to let people know if you're not going to show up. That way people who are driving from far out of town won't come if there's not going to be anyone else here. SirJohnW and I live in Memphis, so it's no big deal to us, but there were peeps wanting to come from as far as Tupelo and that's quite a drive to make for nothing. I don't want anyone to waste a freaking afternoon!!
I've personally got no problem with everyone meeting, or coming to my place- we can play GT4 with a steering wheel- but it would be good to have some way to contact in case person X gets lost or is going to be late or whatever. John and I waited around until we were bored to tears to see if anyone else showed up.
Ya'll figure out a date, and I'll make some plans. The last 2 weekends in April, I'll be out of town.

almost any time in may is good for me. i'm in tupelo most weekends and it's not a big deal for me to drive to memphis. i drive to atlanta once every two months. if this goes down shoot me a pm and i'll give you my number.
