losing faith?

I've heard people saying how they've started losing faith in the focus community lately. But judging by these forums and people posting on these forums it seems like the focus community is as tight as it was when i joined it. I might not have been around when things were really happenin but it seems like this is still a pretty tight knit family on here! Maybe some people have moved on and bought mazdas but they still pop in here every once in a while to see whats goin on. I dont feel we should let people who are "losing faith" pull us down. Just my two cents! Stay focused and happy cruising!

honestly, to me, this site seems but a shadow of its former self. there are still alot of "focus enthusiasts" but not nearly as many "car enthusiasts."

As a long time memeber of other enthusiet sites I can say that they all have their ups and downs. you loose a few members that really posted a lot of good stuff and it drags the whole site down. Stick it out and it will come back.
Speaking as a new member here.... There are quite a few "kids" here but overall there is a very successfull site with a lot of great info. Just by searching I have solved 2 problems with my Focus that may have baffled me otherwise.

I'll probably have my 04 wagon for at least several years more, so I guess I'll hang around here as long as I do.

I have a love/hate relationship with my Focus. Some days I love it, some days I wanna trade 'er in. But I won't be doing that anytime soon because I'd be upside down.


I joined in 2004 when I bought my first Focus; but I never posted. Then I got a second Focus in 06 and "re-found" the site, and this time I'm around for the long haul.

I have to agree with this 100%. Also killer ZETEC comment about "the sorry state of affairs" (I will assume this is ref to the economy). It's also IMHO a regulatory problem, or the 'Nanny State' or 'Big Brother' (your preference).

Although I may be fairly new to the focus community I've always been into modding or customizing vehicles. Started with minitrucks went to the dreaded import back to trucks now found myself with my focus. It may not be the best but its mine and I did it with help from friends. And that's what its all about to me! Hangin out workin on each others cars and cruisin! I appreciate everyones input on this thread and hope to see more possitive posts added to it! If everyone hangs in there through this tough economic time, we will STILL have a tight community! Thanks again for the possitive feedback from everyone!
