zinger637 latest pickup and last moments with focus
Last week I was fortunate to work an accident for one of the shop vans at a local Ford dealership where I patrol I'm a LEO for those who don't already know. Well the manager of the ford dealership made the scene and appreciated how I handled things at the scene. I been wanting a truck for the longest and he said if I ever needed anything to let him know. Well I told him and make a long story short he took care of me and resulted in a new 2012 F150 FX2 with all the bells and whistles a truck could have minus the moon roof and navi. Wasnt to fond of the eco boost and the colors they had available so I went with the v8. The silver and color scheme reminded me of the focus. Focus was just getting a little to small for me. With the crzy amount of rebates the truck had and what the manager gave me the focus was able to be paid off. Don't have much plans for this thing except to hook up my police strobes and maybe your regular bolt ons CAI and corza cat back exhaust and tune. As for the focus alot of the parts have been selling through word of mouth etc. What I have left are the coils and wheels with tires. I will still troll on here from time to time since my sis is a focus owner as well.

Appreciate it, I put alot of money, time, research, and not scared to go to extreme with it. I did alot of things many focus owners would not do.

Honestly needed something bigger for work and my extra jobs.
I'll live vicariously through my sis 08 focus since all those parts are mine. May even throw my Simmons on there since I'm in no rush to sell them.

I know I have impacted the foci world locally and felt like i did my part. Getting married next yr comes along with buying a house and the truck comes more in handy and spacious for my equipment. It's a fun truck to drive and spoiled in it, still trying get used to it. Feels good to finally see over traffic.

Definitely a nice pick up Adam. Too bad the focus is moved on.

No worries, I know you will enjoy that ride and will take care of it just as you did your focus.

I find this to be a FAIL on a monumental level.

^^ I'm gonna have to agree. You by far took the crown for best 2nd gen I've ever seen and I'm deeply saddened to not see anymore updates. Congrats on the new truck though!
