SHORT BIO:
I bought this car end of summer 2005 after working all summer in a paper mill to come up with the down payment and money to make car payments. After 4 summers in that mill i paid it off on exactly the 3 year mark of ownership and with 30k miles on the clock (bought it with 300). I worked hard every summer to pay for the car and insurance while trying to modify it on limited funds. I go to college full time with no job at school so every penny i save in the summer and every trip or fair my friends went to that i skipped went right into the car. People think im crazy and ive lost a lot of friends because id rather save money and not do things and spend the money on the car. But with that ive made MANY more friends on here, my friends on FocusFanatics and Focus Nation are friends i will have for a lifetime... when i bought this car it started out as a way to get from point A to point B while holding my bike and has turned into so much more. Now the car gives me a reason to get with people that have become family. This car has also been a way for my father and i to re-connect as we never had anything in common until i started to modify my car. He used to drag race and always wished i would be into cars but i was always into computers and bikes more then cars. This car has been a father son project and those are memories you cant put a price tag on. It may not be the fastest or most modified car on here but i wouldnt give it up or trade it, or any decisions ive made because of it, for the world.

Sorry we can only take candidates with modified Focus. The more, the better.

Also please note that you will need to provide a summary with your submission as well as have high-resolution photos.

too bad this isn't a few months down the road when i've really done a few things. just rims and suspension on the car right now, and a big dent in the rear, lol.

cool stuff though, good luck to all, can't wait to see the magazine.

I think you should pick my focus because even though Ive only had it for a few months I have put in some time to make her look good. Also, in a month I will be the only person with a concept GT carbon fiber hood from Extreme Dimensions, well at least for a few weeks. No performance modifications at this moment, unfortunately but its an ST so it has some get up and go. I just bought some SVT springs and those will be installed shortly.

MODS:

Tinted corners
blacked out grill
Painted headlights
fog light mod
painted head lights
Custom painted hood
Tinted Tails
