proud of my focus

Just thought I'd let everyone know that I drove all the way to South Carolina with my brand new focus from Ohio and it was great. Much better than when we took my girlfriends civic down there. Driving that focus through the smoky mountains at 90 mph was a blast. Interesting to mention, my buddy followed us down there in his girlfriend's brand new 4cyl eclipse and they couldnt keep up with me, even in cruise control. Their car was pooping out on them in between 3rd and 4th through the mountains. I thought that was funny. I also got much better gas mileage. The eclipses must really suck unless you get the V6. Anyways the little zx3 made it fine and I was very pleased with it even though this is my first 4cyl car. I did learn one thing out of the trip, Carleston police are very strict with their parking enforcement. Sorry for the crappy pic but you get the idea. 35 u.s. dollars later and I was back on the road.

That was a good idea the credit card swipe, should would save a lot of hassel in the long run.
