newbie to FF

Hey everyone! I'm new to FF, well I'm new to Fords. This looks like a great online community here with lots of information.
I just inherited a 1994 Ford Focus. I know...it's a little outdated. Is this site dedicated mostly to 2000 and newer? Are there any other Focus enthusiast websites that would cover the older body styles?
I am also interested in understanding the history of the Focus. I searched a little and couldn't find anything really. Is there a thread that covers the history of the focus, body styles, engines, trannys, interior styles, etc.?
Thanks in advance for the help, I'm excited to be here!

There wasn't a 1994 ford focus............
Either you have an escort, or you've got the year wrong.
Welcome to the site though. We'll help you figure out what it is.

Yeah I got sick of modding and felt like I was not presentable showing up as an engineer in a tricked ford focus. I'm still trying to sell it, looking for a buyer.

Yeah still at FAU, one year left!

Thanks everyone...i'm a newb. it is a 2004.
On that note, does anyone know of a thread that walks through the years and engine types for the focus? e.g. SE, SVT which models had 2.0l or 2.3l engines? Thanks.
