I saw on the cover they had 12 bargain rides, and I was thinking "where's my car?" Then I saw it on the cover and said "yesss!" Pretty good stuff, although they got the rarest SVT wrong. And the shout to FF was nice too.

SVTF and focusfanatics.com in newest issue of Automobile Magazine

Well, our favorite little car gets featured in this months issue of Automobile in a feature called 12 best bets: Pay a little, get a lot. Also at the end of the page it lists a few recommended websites... focusfanatics being at the TOP of the list. I don't think the cars were ranked or anything, but I guess it means something that the SVTF was number 1. If anyone got an issue of this and can scan it so everyone else can see, I would appreciate it. My scanner is currently not working.

Very cool!

I have to say the focus was definitely not a car for me... Or so I thought, when they had first come out but it was the zx3 and svt that really did it for me! After a while I really fell in love with the hatchback bodystyle...

I never liked the sedans ever! And told myself I wouldn't ever buy one... but after looking into the ST's a bit and finally driving one for the first time (my current car) I have love for the sedans now too! LOL!!

Definitely a great car though for the money and fun to drive!

I tried to find the magazine today so I could scan it, but I only found a 2009 Buyer's Guide by Automobile magazine, and it didn't say anything about FF under the Focus part..

Here you go guys (Automobile Mag/FF)

Like SVTdubber said here, FocusFanatics.com was listed in an article about the SVTF. I finally found a copy of the magazine, and figured I'd scan it for yall...







Enjoy.
