Exclamation Check it check it check it!!!!!

So, I've finially used my madd "knowing people" skills to help us out!!!!

As most of you know, the best friggin car show on the net right now is Garage 419, and the best friggin car geek in the universe (besides Jeremy Clarkson and Jay Leno) is non other than my good friend, Matt Farah(good friend is relative to how you look at it..... I don't really know him..... but anywho). So, since FocusFest is comming up, I sent him a message concerning a possible topic of interest for the show. Here's the message....

Matthew Farah,
First off, I'd like to start by introducing myself. My name is Daniel, I live in Mooresville, NC.(Race City USA), and I'm 17 years old. First and for most, I am a car enthusiast. I love cars regardless of make or model, but like most entusiasts, I'm biased towards my favorite car of all.

Now, I know you'll probably laugh when I say this, but hear me out. I, above all, am a Focus Fanatic. Yes, that's right, a Ford Focus. Now, I know what your thinking right now..... this guy is crazy..... a FOCUS?!?! Well Mr. Farah, let me give you a little insight. There are a whole slew of us. I am a proud member of an online community dubed FocusFanatics.com . That is where I LIVE. And I'll tell you what, Focus or not, we have to have the most active car tuning site online today, and definitely the most passionate.

And because of our passion, we hold an annual national rally called FocusFest. It lasts 3 days and takes place once every year during the summer. We usually have around 2000 or so people show, focus's or not, and hold events that help expose our car's abilities in all categories. Except for we are unique in that mostly everyone there actually gets along!!! (haha, sorry, inside joke).

I'd love it if you could skip on over to www.focusfest.com or www.focusfanatics.com and see what I'm talking about. I'm sure you'd be interested in it, and I'd love it if you could possibly consider a feature on Garage 419. That would DEFINITELY be a help, not only for us, but for our wonderful site sponsors like Massive Speed Systems and Focus Sport.

Fly me back an email and maybe we can discuss it more in depth???....

By the way, my screen name on FF is SPIman2.0, just in case you wanted to know.

Best regards, and Happy Tuning!
-Daniel


So, what do you think? Genius... maybe???!?!?!

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!

Interesting Idea .... but they are going to also look into what's in it for them. Their PRs and Marketing Group will look into this and see what it can do ... good or bad. before making a decision ... you will probably hear something from them in like 2-3 weeks.

I also noticed the FocusSport part ... though a good group of guys they are not affiliated with us here on FF ... only on FJ ...

Good look with your idea ... but you should probably hit up the main guys of the site to see if it is alright with them on this idea also.
