Anyone in the Austin area?

Here in about 6 months to a year me and my wife are looking into buying a house out there. There has been talk for a long time and now it looks like we can finally do it . Just wondering if anyone is in this area and wanted to know how the Focus scene is out there?

Also, I was wondering if there is any good jobs out there as well?

ATX has a lot of jobs... one of the biggest places in Texas... Houston is bigger but it's a lot more crowded... the focus thing is pretty sweet... most everyone down here knows everyone else... like on saturday, we're having a huge meet in Galveston on the beach... then in two weeks we're havin a druise/BBQ... we all know how to have fun in Texas... lol

Well, definitly prepare for a phatty G2G when I get there cause I need to meet some of yall (and need help moving in ). The wife and I are really excited, but we're gonna take it a bit slow and do things right. It would suck to just jump in and realize that we bought a shitty house and found shitty jobs...lol.

Doood! If you guys help us out I'll throw in the pizza and beer (beer afterwards cause we'll have some breakables...lol).

It kinda looks like it might be sooner, but I don't know. Cause we were talking to our loan lady and she's saying that we'll be able to get a house and possibly have some cash left over for the move !!! We'll see here in the next couple of weeks on what's going on .

Come on Texas Foci pwn3rs!!! Post up! Introduce yourselfs and post pics of your cars too. I'll post some of mine here tonight when I get a chance .

Welcome to the 512

I moved here from Oceanside, Ca about 5 years ago. You'll like it here! I roll with about 4 other focus guys here in Round Rock (just north of Austin). I didn't get to make it to the Galveston meet (it was my 21st and I was out partying), but I'll definatly be making it to the Lime Creek Cruise and BBQ. I drive an 02 SVTF... tomorrow i'll show you some pics of my car, as it's been changed up some.

Sweet, keep the pics coming! I'm going to wash my car this weekend and take car of a few here and theres then post some pics up

Well, I know I keep going back and forth, but it's looking like a July move. We're going to save some money up first and bounce out of here in July and move into an apartment first. After a year or so, we're going to buy a lot and build up on it.

Me and my have both decided that Austin is the perfect place to start a family and start a new life pretty much. My wife was born out in Dallas and has family out there. When we went out for Thanksgiving one year I fell in love with that place. I can't wait for teh move . I'm going to try and save every penny I can to get out there .

Sorry it took me so long to get some pics up but here they are . All mods are in my sig.









Here's something I just realized that I could do with my camera







Come on more pics! Show me what I'm moving to!

It looks like we are going to be living in Round Rock, TX. Is there much to do out there? Where is the nearest track for road racing, 1/4 mile, Etc.?
