How many people reside in the North Texas area? I.E. Denton, Flower Mound, Grapevine, DFW, etc. Just curious to see how many FF members live in the area, and maybe looking at setting up a possible G2G.

02-15-2005, 05:16 PM
Im game anytime...and I'd be willing to travel a little bit to meet up. I've got some other foci owners who arent members of FF.com who would like to get together.
02-16-2005, 08:43 PM
well that sounds awesome...I'm in Burleson.......I would like to get together sometime...maybe the week of Feb.26(Sat)???????
02-28-2005, 05:29 PM
I am new to the zx3/focus world. I just bought a 01 zx3. Unfortuantely it is atx. I still want to do some things to it like get it breathing and maybe chip it. Ofcourse I will need to get some tires rims etc... Looking for someone in DFDub that knows what they are talking about to guide me in my quest for £ðÇµ§ bliss.
Anyway, take it easy and stay £ðÇµ§ÈÐ.
Mesquite kinda, Tx
02-28-2005, 06:09 PM
Im no expert but I've done a few things to my Focus (See profile for complete list)....I've only had it since November 23rd. If you have any questions or need any help with anything feel free to PM me or post up on the forums.
02-28-2005, 06:13 PM
By the way...I live in Flower Mound, Im about 30 minutes from the Mesquite area.
02-28-2005, 07:30 PM
yea theres lots of us in the dfw area we're just on another forum but if u ever need any help between all of us there isnt anything on a focus we cant do
03-01-2005, 05:08 PM
Actually I am in FlowerMound quite often. My band rehearses there.
I will definately be asking for advice in the near future.
Anyway, take it easy and stay £ðÇµ§ÈÐ.
03-01-2005, 05:13 PM
Wow no one ragged on me over my atx....cool.
Anyway, take it easy and stay £ðÇµ§ÈÐ.
03-01-2005, 11:56 PM
i'll be moving to arlington in april.
03-04-2005, 06:14 PM
Duncanville here.[paranoid] Where do you guys hang out at?
03-08-2005, 11:35 PM
I was also wondering if a get together could happen again...I know that you guys tried a few weeks ago on a saturday...but i noticed that alot of the folks here were busy with either work or other plans. You guys should try to get together and roll to a show...Like the ones that are on Mondays in Arlington off of I-20...I seem to always be the only SVT focus...or Focus period that come out there...i hang with the VW club just to have some one to talk too.
03-08-2005, 11:37 PM
I would be game for something like that.
03-08-2005, 11:52 PM
Me 2 ...Get errr done
03-09-2005, 12:29 AM
WEll...then thats awesome...I usually get there after 9pm...well...thats because i work til 830 or 9. But yeah...you guys should like get together some place...like it seems that everyone lives either on the north part of I-35E and south of I-35W...so arlington would be a good get together. I would say somewhere on 360...thats an awesome midpoint
03-09-2005, 12:32 AM
Say...'jzrgarza' what part of duncanville you live in? at the moment I live in Cedar Hill...but im moving out to Arlington. You wouldnt happen to know who owns that Blue SVT Focus that cruzes in Duncanville do you? i see that guy pass my friends house all the time there.
03-09-2005, 04:41 PM
I live a block away from Clark & Wheatland and I've never seen that blue focus you're talking about. what part of duncanville does your friend live? I've seen a black one twice on Main St.,an orange one about a month ago near the high school, but never a blue one.has anyone seen a screaming yellow one before?never seen one in person, not even at a dealer.a g2g would be awesome.I'm prolly the first one who gets off work (@ 1:30), so I'm pretty bored after that.BTW, I have an orange led underbody neon kit if anyones interested.I doubt it but its worth a try, if not than I guess its going on my car
03-10-2005, 01:22 AM
My buddy lives on duncanville rd and 67...yeah i have seen a black one too...that orange one belongs to some kid who seems to like to race alot...i run into him quite a bit. As for a screaming yellow...yeah i saw one like a year ago when they came out at the Ford Dealership on 360 and I-30, use to have a friend who worked there. Good luck trying to get that neon kit sold...and if you put it on...well...that would be interesting.
03-10-2005, 03:22 PM
if I could find that kid with the orange one then maybe I could get him to buy it.[;)] but I doubt thats gonna happen.Oh well guess I'll get started on putting it on.[:D]
03-11-2005, 02:18 AM
thats funny...you should post some pics to show how it looks
03-23-2005, 01:31 AM
I'm up in Plano during the week, Mesquite on the weekends. Work Downtown off Lamar.
03-23-2005, 01:35 AM
where at in Mesquite? I live in Mesquite. I work at the Macaroni Grill that's near the new Home Depot.
03-23-2005, 08:54 AM
Off Oates near the Cracker Barrel, my GF lives over there, so weekends are there for me. PM me and I'll get you my cell # if you want to meet up over that way, I'll be gone on a ride saturday down to Marble Falls for a bike meet, but most nights I can be over that way.
03-24-2005, 08:50 PM
I'm in good ole Rockwall TX
about 10 min from mesquite
03-25-2005, 11:53 AM
I live up in Carrollton towards The Colony and Lewisville
I think we should definately try to G2G.
I wouldn't mind at all meeting up at 360, 121 all the way is easy enough.
LETS DO ITTT
03-25-2005, 02:07 PM
SVTBishop: My grandmother lives out in Rockwall...Heath actually...but im in Rockwall quite a bit. I was out there on Sunday March 13th and I was cruising around and I saw an orange SVT...that wasnt you by chance was it? I was heading towards the I30 overpass...down towards that high school, and you were coming on the opposite side of the road...I was near that gas station with the big sign..right off the highway.....As much as i've been out there, i've yet to learn street names.
04-04-2005, 11:56 AM
It looks like there are a bunch more Foci owners from the DFW area now. When I joined there were about 3. I am in Lewisville...off of 121.
04-04-2005, 06:48 PM
yeah there are alot more now...i also noticed that. I would love to see a group come together and form...but with so many people having different schedules...its pretty hard
04-04-2005, 09:04 PM
We should get a DFW club together (If one doesnt already exist).
04-05-2005, 12:03 AM
I'd be up for a DFW area club, hopefully I wouldn't be out of town for work everytime the group got together [driving]
04-05-2005, 12:40 AM
Hey i would be up for a club...sounds like a plan to me
04-05-2005, 11:43 AM
any suggestions for a name?
04-05-2005, 12:07 PM
Just a couple...Still to early for me to think. I could probably come up with more towards the end of the day....
04-05-2005, 12:32 PM
some of my ingenious thoughts come at the end of the day![:D]
04-05-2005, 12:42 PM
Most of the time... if my job isn't draining the life and sucking any and all artistic abilities out of me...I could come up with something better. I could possiably design a logo and get some stickers made when and if this club gets going.
04-05-2005, 01:20 PM
well bring it on, maybe you should ask for some suggestions from everyone else...to get some ideas.
04-05-2005, 01:52 PM
is this going to be afocus only club? or are other makes& models welcome?
04-05-2005, 02:12 PM
Hmmm...I was thinking a strickly Focus club, but we could see what everyone elses thoughts were on the idea.
@ pm5019: I like the Focus 360..its kinda catchy.
04-05-2005, 02:24 PM
I think everybody should pitch a name....do some brainstorming....Get something everybody agrees on. I just can't think of anything real good at the moment....at least not on my own. So lets hear your ideas Pep's! I am kinda board right now at work...nothing else better to do.
As for who can join....I'm with TM3 ...thinking a "stricly Focus club".
04-05-2005, 03:04 PM
Strictly Focus or Focused sounds pretty cool. not a bad idea to have foci only. hell i have 2, my dad has been driving my zts so he could save on gas money, she needs some work though!!
04-05-2005, 03:29 PM
Hmm.. All I got is Too Focused or DFW Focus. I did like Focus360 pretty good. Im trying to think outside of the box but I'm having a bit of a writers block.
04-05-2005, 03:54 PM
Like I said I am kinda board so I am working on some potential designs at the same time trying to come up with different names. Strictly Focus IS or too close to a current club I belive. We are some what on the right track. Need to be origional and clever.....I got on MS Word and started using the Thesaurus to find different meanings to words. For example. "Focus" = Focal Point or Locus. Things of that nature. So if I take (for example) "Focus 360" and replace "Focus" I come up with "Focal Point 360". From there I can go to "Club Focal 360" or "DFW Focal 360" I am useing 360 to refer to People from around the area. Just my thought process right now.
04-05-2005, 04:51 PM
I'm in Fort Worth with a ST
04-05-2005, 05:07 PM
04-06-2005, 01:06 AM
stick with the "360" idea... it sort of represents the focus from all over the DFW area...
04-06-2005, 03:24 AM
Domestic Disturbance is a Dallas/Houston car club.
04-06-2005, 10:44 AM
i thought domestic disturbance was strickly in houston? hmmm...do they meet in dallas?
04-06-2005, 10:52 AM
They do have a dallas chapter but travel all over the state to attend carshows and races. I don't know if they meet anywhere in Dallas...the Forum link isn't working on my Computer.
04-06-2005, 01:11 PM
Here is the email address for Domestic Disturbance, they list their mailing address as being in Irving.
email@example.com - Questions About Club Rules and Membership Information
04-06-2005, 02:44 PM
whats their website?
04-06-2005, 05:09 PM
I am south of Burleson about 20 miles. In the Grandview area.
04-07-2005, 02:00 AM
wow thats far...well welcome ... we are discussing on a name for a foci group...and are also trying to find out more about STRICTLY FOCUS
04-07-2005, 09:40 AM
FocusChef put a link for DD "clubdd.net".
04-07-2005, 03:19 PM
well if you want to have an all focus club, dd wouldnt be the right way to go seeing how they allow any domestic vehicle. On top of that does anyone know what the requirements are to join?
04-07-2005, 03:44 PM
I was going to say something earlier....seems like everybody just wanted to go join DD. So I stopped thinking about names. I guess everybody just lost intrest. Although their cars are nice I couldn't keep up with these guys as far as mods go. I was just thinking about a small club that would get toghether have some BBQ's and help eachother with car problems or bolting on new parts and what not.
04-07-2005, 04:10 PM
Yea im with you pm5019...thats what I was looking for. Im still interested in getting a little club together.
04-07-2005, 05:12 PM
Cool....well I am still up for it. I will start working on the name...unless you or anyone else have other suggestions. Even if it were just two of us would be fine....at least I could hang with someone that had the same car as I did and throw ideas back and forth with.
04-07-2005, 05:43 PM
exactly. I know right now I don't have the money to go crazy and do all kinds of modding. I got a kid on the way here in the next 6 weeks so any modding I do in the future is gonna have to be along the lines of sts maybe a rear engine mount. I've already spent about a $1500 on the car since I got it!
04-07-2005, 05:56 PM
small is great just see what you guys can do
04-07-2005, 06:18 PM
Well im in Flower Mound, which as we all know, is right next to Lewisville....so im not very far away. I'll keep on truckin' on the name to see if I can come up with anything.
04-08-2005, 12:30 PM
Anyone go to the mavs game lastnight..I saw a nice blue svt slammed to the ground....I was like yea!!! To bad I didnt take my svt...Back to the subject , we should get a meet going...Then maybe we can get drunk and let our brains work..[:o)]
04-08-2005, 01:41 PM
the requirements to join DD are to have at least 3 exterior mods with a body kit being a must first. theres an autoX where you can be somewhat stock but you have to autoX. there's a drag or 1320 race and you have to have at least 3 engine mods. that's the jist of the requirements. now DD isn't a bunch of snobby guys but do ask alot of you if you are in the club. you have to attend at least 3 shows i think is what the show requirement is. I'm totally sure about the show part, so contact Dropdfocus on AIM. He's the Dallas chapter prez. the forums were hacked earlier this week, so he is going to reset the forums. it should be up and running by monday or tuesday.
04-08-2005, 02:29 PM
Holy crap....I wonder... if the body kit is an absolute must as a first mod ....what is an absolute must for the engine a turbo or SC. Yeah...that is a little too much for me...Anyways a first meet would be good to kind of intro ourselves and our cars...get an idea of were everybody is at. We could all meet in a Parkinglot somewhere and go from there. When is every body free? I am pretty free this weekend. I will be spending most of the morning washing and detailing the focus on saturday....even though it is suppost to rain Sunday. Just my luck.
04-08-2005, 03:21 PM
the only exterior mod I have is my neons and forget about the body kit, I like the svt kit just fine but I appreciate the offer. oh yeah and Jake has an orange car like mine, be kinda weird having two dont you think?
04-08-2005, 04:00 PM
This weekend I work on saturday untill 5pm and sunday I've got to do some things for my art class. Next saturday I work until 5pm and sunday I'll be at the Dallas Auto Show. So I'd be available anytime after 5pm on saturdays. I work during the week until 6:30pm so im also available anytime after that.
04-08-2005, 04:36 PM
I dont work weekends, during the week get off @ 1:30 (work in flower mound). i'm free weekends unless the wife makes plans for me (arguing gets you no where!)
04-08-2005, 04:43 PM
Ok...Anyone up to just meet up for a couple of hrs. tomarrow about 6ish? I work till 5:30 and takes me about an hr to get home so I am avaliable after that and weekends are always open....unless my GF and daughter are in town. I have been done with my art classes for a couple of years now....wooohoooo! Kind of miss them though.
04-08-2005, 04:48 PM
Yea tomorrow at 6ish works good for me..i'll be off at 5pm and I live and work in Flower Mound.
My art class is no fun...its just art appreciation, nothing to get too excited about. Im a Architecture major im just in this stupid art class becuase the 'man' said I have to have it to get my degree.
04-08-2005, 04:56 PM
Art appreciation sucks.....esp. if your studying modern art....to me it is macaronii glued to a piece of construction paper with some cotton balls thrown in there. Ok we got 2 people in... jzrgarza...Is it ok with the wife if you come out and play? Where do we want to meet?
04-08-2005, 05:06 PM
What about Grapevine Mills Mall? Its right off 635, 121, 114...easy to get to...easy to find.
04-08-2005, 05:14 PM
Sounds good...straight shot for me...well pretty much...a right turn and then a left. How about in the Ski and Sea parking lot....that is usually less crowded easy to find one another.....who has a digital camera. gotta take some pics.
04-08-2005, 07:44 PM
Sorry I ment Sun & Ski Sports
04-08-2005, 08:49 PM
well the wife works tomorrow and gets off around 4 so I don't know if I'll make it. We'll see what happens. Sunday shes having a baby shower so I'll def be free then. I'll let you know if I'm gonna make it. BTW you can call me J.R.
04-09-2005, 06:12 PM
I dont think I can make it tonight..but what about some time sunday afternoon? I'll be busy tomorrow until about 3pm.
04-09-2005, 06:22 PM
yea I'm not gonna make it, gotta go take pictures[rolleyes]. Tomorrow might be ok if I dont go to Yellobelly. Its not a great track but at least I can drive fast[driving]
04-09-2005, 08:16 PM
Tomarrow is fine with me too...How late are you gonna be at the track J.R? We can make it around 5 or so if that would be better for you. Kind of a good thing it didn't happen today...I probably would have made everybody pass out from the smell of gas. I changed my Fuel filter and ran all down my arm. Cool then I will get on tomarrow and make sure that we are still on and that 5:00 is ok with everybody.
04-10-2005, 10:55 AM
hey if you guys meet...where are you all going? im at work til like 5:30 and i would like to meet up...i work south of arlington...but live in north arlington now...so just tell me where...i know its a little late...but i ve been bust and havent read any of the forums til now
04-10-2005, 11:32 AM
Hey guys, I just bought my focus 2 weeks ago. Found this forum a few days after that and have been pretty impressed with what I've seen. Looks like everyone is really into their cars. I live here in Denton and would really like to join any kind of little club you all get started. Can't do anything real expensive but would really like to hang out with a couple of guys talking shop.
04-10-2005, 12:05 PM
If we meet today it will be at Grapevine Mills mall. I am suggesting in the Sun and Ski sports parking lot. Still waiting to hear back from everybody. I am pretty much open all day just trying to pick a time that would be good for everybody. I am told that in the afternoon the weather is gonna get bad.
Shamus your welcome to join us...
04-10-2005, 12:57 PM
Does 630ish work for everybody? I'll be done with all my art bs by then and tukaniSVT should be off of work. GrapevineMills isnt but 20 minutes from Arlington.
04-10-2005, 02:01 PM
yea that sounds fine, the track opens at 3:00 and I only want to get in a few runs and thats only if it doesnt rain. If they run us out of the parking lot we can post up in the parking lot of my job. Were closed today so it shouldnt be a problem. Its right down the street from the mall.
04-10-2005, 03:35 PM
6:30 sounds good weather permitting.
04-11-2005, 01:02 AM
Havent been able to check the net for a little while...got caught up with things to do...just got my new place in north arlington...It also started to rain...did you guys get together? Im going to try to make it to a gathering one of these days...By the way...just for fun, i ran an Integra and he kept pretty well...i was impressed. HAd one of those annoying whining mufflers too, felt a need to shut him up
04-11-2005, 01:51 AM
Yea we got together...it was just myself, pm5019, and jzrgarza...we were only there for about an hour or so. I think were going to get together again next saturday the 16th around 630pm, so I hope you and anyone else interested can make it out then.
By the way...was it a GSR? No way a LS, RS, POS Integra could keep up with an SVT...unless he had some serious mods.
04-11-2005, 09:41 AM
YEah it was a GSR...we were joking around for a while...he actually took me at first meet, but we were already going like 65...those hondas have high end power...but when we raced from a stop is when i really shut him up...funny he thought he had torque in that thing of his
04-11-2005, 09:42 AM
you guys need give directions this time...because i know where grapevine mills mall is at...but thats it....dont really know that area at all
04-11-2005, 10:31 AM
No problem....We Probably won't meet at Grapevine Mills this time since the suckurity guy with his bag of skittles drove us off. We will probably meet at jzrgarza's work which is not far from Grapevine Mills.
Here are some logo designs that I told you I would post for the Focus 360.
04-11-2005, 11:35 AM
I like the first logo and the last ones best. I'm usually free on saturdays, but only until 5pm [?|] I want to try and get together with the group. I have an AEM short ram coming, a deal on SVT healights, ford racing wires and an AEM wire cover...but right now, she sits stock. If you see an `02 liquid silver zx3 with a foot tall punisher logo in the back glass, that'd be me...there's alos a A&M plate frame [thumb]
04-11-2005, 01:15 PM
Damn man....very nice job on those logos...I like the 1st, 3rd, and 4th ones the best.
04-11-2005, 02:27 PM
Thanks....I am leaning towards the 4th one myself. What I am thinking about is makeing the 360 to match the color of the cars. Don't worry Dragwn...my car is pretty much stock right now....at least I won't be the only one.
04-11-2005, 03:06 PM
i say go with the final logo
04-11-2005, 09:53 PM
So when can we get a set of the fourth design logo then ? [thumb] [burnout]
I just got in my AEM short ram, put it on and it really does wake the motor up. [burnout] Ebay can be a beautiful thing [thumb]
How big were you thinking of making the logo?
04-12-2005, 12:48 AM
i say dont make the logo too big...i would angle the logo on my back side windows and contour with the frame
04-12-2005, 12:16 PM
I am thinking about a 1" x 8" size....depending on the syle...I did a couple of more revisions of the #4 logo. The top is the origional....the 2nd is skewed and the 3rd is normal but 360 moved and the colors of the 360 will also be for what ever design ya'll choose.
04-12-2005, 01:38 PM
I like the second one, "skewed" kinda like me [thumb]
04-12-2005, 02:02 PM
I think you should leave the color neutral with the gray...and i like the skewed as well....1" x 8" thats a good size
04-12-2005, 03:06 PM
yea thats pretty sweet!! the size should fit nice too.maybe we should leave the colors neutral so they will all match.
04-12-2005, 05:09 PM
Yea those look awesome..I cant wait to my hands on some. Nice work Peter.
04-12-2005, 05:18 PM
Ok....Welcome everybody to Focus 360...lol. If I read everybodys post right... this should be the final logo. If it is approved by everybody then I can start looking at getting these made and what the cost will be for each. It is pretty much to scale....the screen will be a little smaller...over all it will be a 3/4" x 8" hopefully that isn't too big. I am gonna try and find a place that will keep everything in individual letters rather than a bumper sticker style. It should turn out nice. I am not expecting this to cost a whole lot I will just have to shop around.
I would like a thumbs up of those who are interested. Click the link below to see the final logo.
04-12-2005, 05:24 PM
Im on board...lets do it. [thumb]
04-12-2005, 05:37 PM
sweeet! (uhh... yes)
04-12-2005, 07:12 PM
I have not been able to check the board for a couple of days. I really wanted to go to the g2g but the wife is out of town....with my focus. She is supposed to be back Wed. night. I'm game for another meeting if it is Sunday (gotta sweet talk the woman). I live in denton so it shouldn't take me too long to get there. As far as the logo that's great. If it's ok I'd like to "join".
04-12-2005, 07:14 PM
You are more than welcome to "join" Shamus76.
04-12-2005, 07:18 PM
Thanks!! It'll be nice to get a few ideas from some other people. Have any pics of your car TM3?
04-12-2005, 07:29 PM
I've got a few on my computer at home I could send you.
04-12-2005, 08:02 PM
I have no prob....I just need to get an idea of how many Stickers I need to have made. So far I am up to 5. I have a couple of leads of where I can get these made and if I can get a couple more people I will probably have 10+ made to be more cost effective for everybody. Welcome Shamus. We were planning on haveing a G2G on Saturday is there anyway you can make it then? Here is a quick pick of mine....Both TM3 and jzrgarza have really nice cars....puts me to shame....lol.
04-12-2005, 08:06 PM
Penn Industries in Garland at Kingsley and Shiloh road would be one place to check, I've had stickers/decals made by them before.
I'm in for a pair of the decals [thumb] [thumb]
04-12-2005, 08:07 PM
If it's raining saturday I should be free early on in the day, but seems like everyone else is only free after 6..I'll keep an eye out.
04-12-2005, 08:15 PM
Yeah ...I think some work on the weekends so to try and include everybody we try and adjust times. I think Sat at 3 is what we were going to shoot for. Kind of a late afternoon G2G. I will check out that place in Garland one of the places I was thinking was Kinkos....but unless I have a bunch made it wouldn't be cost affective....unless I have them make 20....which I might end up doing.
04-12-2005, 08:38 PM
Saturday I work until 5pm so I couldnt make it out until 5:15 or so. I was thinking it might be easier to get it started towards 6 or 7...simply because that gives everybody some time to get whatever they need to have done during the day....but its whatever works best for everybody, I'm by no means trying to get this to revolve around my schedule...Im just throwing out some ideas.
What kind of prices were we looking at?
04-12-2005, 08:58 PM
I guess I was thinking of something else that was going on at 3. I just can't remember what it was. Anyways....my schedule is open anytime...if we want to get started early and just let people show up when they can that is fine with me.
I am thinking about $1 to 4... Depends on where I go and the quantity It might be more expensive to buy 10 and cheeper to buy 30. want to get the best price......Tomarrow I will make some calls I will let you know.
04-12-2005, 10:34 PM
be nice if we had a better place to hang out besides a parking lot![drinking]
04-12-2005, 11:19 PM
Hey guys, I would be interested in coming out to the G2G Saturday. I am actually good friends with "TM3" so I basically already know whats going on, and when/where the g2g is.
04-13-2005, 08:22 AM
Looks like it'll be good weather this weekend, so I'll be building a storage building at the GF's house in Mesquite.I'll catch up one of these weekends soon, or a weekday...if anyone can make it, I'll be at the thursday night gathering here in Plano.
04-13-2005, 09:54 AM
What else do you have in mind JR? We can meet at the parking lot...and end up somewhere else. Come on out Jhatch everybody is welcome.
04-13-2005, 02:49 PM
Im with the whole get together Saturday or Sunday night...those are my best nights i am off...preferly sunday for me...i would be game...just post WHERE, WHEN, and DIRECTIONS and ill be up for that
04-13-2005, 11:02 PM
I am in tukaniSVT's boat. Sunday would be the best time for me. The wife works every saturday so I watch the curtain climbers. She is off about every Sunday so I could make a mid afternoon meet. Would anyone object to me bringing one of the kids. She loves cars and would have a blast. I wasn't sure if it's going to be tame enough or if there would be topless chicks running around.
04-13-2005, 11:16 PM
No objections here....I'll just call the strippers and tell them not to come out. I could do sunday if it was early in the afternoon...say 1 or 2.
04-14-2005, 10:36 AM
Sunday is fine for me. Go ahead TM3 and cancel the strippers and reschedule for another weekend.
I should hear back today about the stickers.
04-14-2005, 11:58 AM
Let me know if you ended up going with Penn Industries..I could save you a trip and pick them up since I'm over in that area a couple times a week, save you a trip from Lewisville.
04-14-2005, 12:51 PM
Do they have a web site I can go to?
04-14-2005, 04:11 PM
so a sunday night set up?...because that would be GREAT...i work til like 6:30...i hate working on sunday
04-14-2005, 05:24 PM
i live in grapevine so lets go ride.
04-14-2005, 05:25 PM
sunday should be fine with me as well. hey shamus dont worry we dont have any groupies hanging around us.........yet!
04-14-2005, 08:19 PM
It still seems kinda scatterd on when we Are going to meet. Sunday seems to be the day. I know that most of us are wanting to do this mid day...in which tukaniSVT would not be able to meet us because he dosen't get off work untill 6:30. TM3 could make it if it is early as 1 or 2. Nobody else really gave times so I am assuming that it is open all day for them. TM3 what is the latest you can stay till? tukaniSVT could you get off work a little early....Job is more important and I don't want to mess with that, but if you could cool.
We could try and keep this going for as long as we can. So that everybody can hang out and meet.
04-14-2005, 08:47 PM
[thumbd] The wife just informed me she has to work Sunday. I would still like to go but I'll have 3 tag-a-longs. If it's cool I'll come out for an hour or two after about 1:30 (nap time). I figure after about an hour or two the kids will get a little restless. Anyone else have a kid? If so bring them, they will entertain each other I'm sure. I have a 5 year old and 2 that are 2.
04-14-2005, 08:51 PM
I can honestly be out all night....I dont have any obligations sunday, but I was just suggesting an early afternoon meet so we could hang out for a while, and not have to worry about getting home early for those of us who have work or school monday morning. I mean im open all day sunday, so anytime is good for me. I know that Jhatch3 will be heading back to school sunday evening so he might not be able to make it. So like I said...anytime sunday is good for me.
04-14-2005, 09:06 PM
i could work at the sunday work schedule...but no promises on that...hopefully i can get to be at one of the meets sometime...so keep it open...i would love to get together with you guys...if other days become available let me know..maybe for some of us other days could work also...im going to start going to those plano meets to check it out...hopefully to meet some other foci's out there...and maybe...ONLY maybe hit up the illegal races just to see who rolls out there too
04-14-2005, 11:20 PM
haha Shamus....I know how it is...I have a daughter. She is about to turn 2, but she is with her mom in New Mexico. Which kind of gave me an idea. I am thinking about the meeting place at Lake Grapevine. It is open to the public no cost to park or anything...has picnic tables and grills. We could start it about 2 or 3 and go to whenever it gets dark. (everybody bring some food and drink). So Shamus you could bring your kids....plenty of room to run around and pass out afterwards. Peppar you can come too.
tukaniSVT you should have enough time to make it out there since it dosen't start getting dark untill 8ish. This is the only place I can think of that has a lot of parking and won't get run out of and can grill some burgers and dogs. I will look at getting some directions made up for those who don't know how to get there and I will PM each of you the directions if this is cool with everybody.
04-14-2005, 11:28 PM
tukaniSVT Watch out at those Plano meets....I went to one a while back when I had my mustang and got pulled over by the police who tried to tell me that my window tint was too dark in which I argued with him and ended up with a ticket for no front licence plate....
04-14-2005, 11:35 PM
sounds good! hey Raymond I'm down to go check out the "unsponsered races". Dont know when and where but I could call some one who does know. Be nice to go out this weekend and see what kind of trouble we can get in to:)
04-15-2005, 12:52 AM
Yea Lake Grapvine sounds like a great place to meet. Just tell me what to bring and Im there.
@ JR or Raymond....I've got some cars I need you guys to set straight, and unfortunately with my mods...im only to take out a couple of them. I've got a GSR that needs to be taken care of and a Civic hatch packing some heat. There are a few others but I cant think right now.
04-15-2005, 01:05 AM
Peter...did you get a price on the decals?
04-15-2005, 11:39 AM
I am still waiting on the person to email me back. If I don't hear anything back today I am gonna find someone else but I am hopeing that I will hear somehthing today.
As far as what to bring...I have some hamburger meat in the freezer I will bring that and some buns and the charcoal. We will probably need more meat and hotdogs...drinks, plates and cups. So everybody just name off what you will bring so we don't have a bunch of bread and no meat.
04-15-2005, 02:19 PM
Yeah the idea to the park is great...i will try my best to get there....just give directions and i will meet up with you guys.
as for the races...i went to the plano thing last night and it wasnt to bad...meet up with one of the guys in the forum there...then left a bit after...i did happen to pass a bunch of races going on when i was going home...so for about 30 mins to an hour my friend and i checked it out...so thursday nights are races...but not good ones...took cops a while to break them up...funny...anyways, drive safe everyone and give directions to the cookout for sunday
04-15-2005, 03:18 PM
Ok everybody...I got a price on the stickers. I had to change up the DFW to make it bigger since it was too small for them to cut. I am going to start out and get 10 made and with the price break at 25% when you order 6 - 10 each comes out to $5.15 per sticker. That will give us one apiece but if you need more you need to let me know. The stickers will be White and Silver.
04-15-2005, 04:10 PM
I'll take two..one for each side of my whip....so I'll pay for two of the decals. (obviously)
04-15-2005, 04:33 PM
As for the Directions I don't quite remember how to get there I will drive them and post it up here later tonight or tomarrow morning so keep an eye out in your PM boxes.
04-16-2005, 11:38 AM
This is starting to sound good. I'll bring the sodas. Everyone let me know what your flavor is. I was thinking Mount. Dew, Pepsi, and DP. Any others you want let me know. We will probably need a few dogs and chips. If nobody picks those up let me know I'll grab some when I grab the pop. Anyone else going to bring an offspring. BTW, I'll take a sticker also.
04-16-2005, 11:45 AM
I can pickup some dogs and buns. When will the decals be ready?
04-16-2005, 01:42 PM
I can get the chips and some paper cups and plates.
04-16-2005, 02:00 PM
Have we got a firm time. IMO start showing up about 1-1:30 until when ever. Have directions been posted?
04-16-2005, 02:27 PM
To save time I am not going to PM everybody. I am not sure what direction everybody is comming from so I am going to start out on 121 assuming everybody knows where that is.
From I-35 take 121 north towards Grapvine Mills mall.
Exit 1215 Grapevine Mill Parkway (hwy 26) go through stop sign
at the 4th light you will want to take a Right on Fairway Dr.
Follow road you will go over the Dam.
Take a Left at Rockledge Park. You will see a convience store with a red overhang ahead if you hit that you have gone to far.
you are going to take the Right split and follow that down.
When you drive up you will see playground equipment on your left...I am thinging right in front of that is where we will meet.
For those of you comeing north from Arlington area get on 121 north and exit Bass Pro. Follow that untill you hit Hwy 26 (Grapevine Mills Parkway) and take a left and follow the above directions.
we can start at 1:30 which is fine. I am not sure when the stickers will be ready. I was looking a getting them done at Kinkos but the way they priced it it got confuseing and I am thinking that they were basicly going to charge $10 a sticker...I am haveing a coworker help me look...I will let you guys know more tomarrow. I will get Hamburger meat and buns, mustard, ketchup, charcoal.
04-16-2005, 03:39 PM
Im going to get there a little late...would like to bring something but dont know what since everyone might be done chowing down and just chillin...im going up 360...hopefully ill get there ok...i will probably be there around 5:30 or 6...
04-16-2005, 03:40 PM
oh yeah...i would also like two stickers...i also like a sticker per side of my car...symetrical is clean
04-16-2005, 04:29 PM
Sound good everybody.....Raymond see you there aobut 5:30 or 6. As for what to bring I can't think of anything so I am gonna say don't bother with it unless someone else can think of anything. BYOB if anyone is interested...I am probalby going to bring some and if anybody else does you can bring some ice Raymond. I will take everybodys order for the stickers tomarrow who shows up and for those of you who are still interested but couldn't make it post up how many you would like. You will have to be at the next meet when I get the stickers in. Kind of a Badging ceramony...lol.
just a run down of who is bringing what.
jzrgarza - Dogs and buns
TM3- cups plates and chips
tukaniSVT - Ice?
pm5019 - hamburger, buns, charcoal. (anyone have Ligher fluid)?
04-17-2005, 10:46 AM

04-17-2005, 10:24 PM
Just now getting home, who all showed up? Sucks I had to miss out on the bbq!
04-18-2005, 12:28 AM
It was just myself, pm5019, shamus76 and then tukaniSVT showed up around 6. I think we're planning another gathering in a few weeks. Hopefully that gives everybody enough time to make plans and make it out.
Hey Raymond...I sent you a PM.
04-18-2005, 12:42 AM
I'll put in an order for two, one for each rear window. Would've liked to be at the BBQ, but I had to finish a storage building at the SO's house.
11-02-2005, 04:22 PM
I live in Fort Worth, for those of you interested in getting a meet together, i know of a few people in the area that own Foci as well, and we go to a meet in Fort Worth behind Hooters off I-20 on Southwest Blvd.. (near exit bryant Irvin Road)... come out and show your focus with us.. 9:30 PM Every saturday night behind hooters..
11-03-2005, 01:58 AM

11-17-2005, 03:13 PM
I'm in Denton.........work in Lewisville.
11-17-2005, 03:34 PM
^^I used to see your car all the time last year, heading south on I35.
11-17-2005, 04:20 PM
Yeah, it's parked most of the time. I only bring it out for races. But next year you'll probably start seeing it again. It's down right now since I've taken the turbo kit off to sell and haven't quite got all the pieces to put it back together again...........plus I'm switching things up a bit, new wheels, new front end, new headlights, etc.
11-17-2005, 04:38 PM
Awesome. Were you going to do another turbo build, or were you going to stay NA?
11-18-2005, 09:18 AM
Not sure yet, most likely if I do another power adder it will be a Powerworks kit.
11-26-2005, 05:06 PM

11-29-2005, 09:56 PM
