Modified Mag FTW!

I got my magazine in the mail today and as usual i opened to the very first page and read just about every word through. However, for once there was an article that REALLY caught my eye. In the "driver training" section titled: "Steve Learned's Ford Focus SVT" woo! finally something about the focus! It was a pretty decent article about the history of that particular SVT that was built well (Jackson Racing SC and KW coilovers) but the actual reason they wrote the story was basically begging Ford for the RS to come to America! So aside from calling Sonic Blue "Shimmering Purple" They had many good things to say about the car including its pheonominal handling potential. They pointed out how well the STI and EVO are doing and how Ford needs to get together and just send it over already! The last few lines read "A Re-engineering is exactly what is sounds like Ford has done with the RS in europe. We know you can build it, Ford, now just bring it to the states, please." ...." And if there isn't proof enough, maybe the sales of EVOs and STIs over the past five years will show that the market is ready. We'll be waiting"

Check it out its in the April issue of Modified! Comments!
