Focus Disrespect?

just a couple months ago, i sold my '91 4cyl. auto mustang. then i bought an '02 manual zx3. since then ive put 17'' rims, euro tails on, did some tinting here and there, and im about to put new headlights on. for me, the upgrade from a 91 stang to an 02 focus was great. im LOVING the car. here in my area, a lot of kids my age have focuses. whenever im with friends and talk about mods im making to my car, they always say, "but its just another focus" they always diss my car and the all the other focuses that my friends have. personally i love my car and like what im doin with it so i dont care what anyone else thinks, but i was wandering if anyone else experiences the focuses not getting much respect.

not me, just add more performance parts and show them what a focus can really do!

I get it all the time at work... mainly people who don't kno cars... I've done a lot to my car... but they just try to give me a hard time n say thier car is faster without any logical reasoning. They think I'm a HARDCORE "2 Fast 2 Furious" guy or somethin. It's all in fun, but I kno they don't understand why I fix up my ride. I'm sure if I had more money I might have had a different platform... maybe not. I LOVE my SVTF this thing handles like a dream, and I couldn't imagine owning another car right now. I like building a car up. N E how, just my input

It really doesnt happen that often, but when it has, i just invite them out to try their luck in the cloverleaf. Tell them just try and keep up, lol. The only comment that did bother me was an older lady saying, "thats a cute wagon". GRRR!.lol

Dont pay any atention to people who say it is just another Focus. Those people know nothing about Focus's or anything about cars. You should laugh at how misinformed they are. The bottom line is who cares what other people think. It is your car and as long as you love it all the nay sayers can go to $%#@. I get the same thing from people. I also have a V8 T-Bird and have owned 4, 5.0 Mustangs. And people ask me Dan why did you get a Focus? And I just smile and say if you only knew. LOL

The people who say "its just a focus" are probably the same ones who say "its just a civic", "its just a neon", "its just an eclipse". They are single minded idiots who only seem to appreciate what they like. I hear it alot here. Even from SRT-4 guys who think they have some kind of rocket ship when, in reality, its a neon with a turbo and other upgrades. No different than an SVT focus, a beefed up econo car. Ignorance pwns most people.

I get that a lot. I finally saw some kids around my age today driving around. Maybe there is hope for the focus in my area still. Whenever i tell ppl what im doing to my car i get "Why? Its a focus." Like everyone on here says, they dont know what they are missing.
