My 09 Coupe finally arrived.

Some weeks ago I placed a post stating I had ordered a new 09 Coupe. I placed the order because I could not find a dealer in my area that had all the goodies I wanted. Well, it took Ford six weeks and four days to build and deliver my new baby.
It was well worth waiting for! I ordered it in the Sangria Red which I love. I got the heated leather seats in "medium stone" which is a nice light gray. Also got the moon and tune package (6CD player), with four co-axial speakers with an eight inch woofer in the "boot" (trunk). Great tunes!! Also got the ABS w/traction control. The best thing about the car (for me, anyway) is the Sync, what a nice feature that is!! I love this car!!!!!! Only two things to gripe about though, one is Ford's choice to go cheap with the rear drum brakes, and the gear shifter feels like a stick in the mud. It lacks the tight accurate feeling of my old SVT's Gertag transmission.
Another big bummer, that has nothing to do with the car, but with me is: I have not had much time to drive it. As some of you may remember, I have a terminal liver disease, and need a transplant ASAP. I had been doing very well up to four weeks ago, when I was rushed to the hospital with kidney failure. Seems my liver is acting up again, and wreaking havoc on the rest of my organs.
In fact I just got home today. I now need to go in every few days to have excess fluid drained from my abdomen. It is not a very pleasant procedure, but must be done.

I'll post some pics as soon as I get the chance.
Thanks for reading, and please say a prayer for me.

the new focus is a great car and i believe u will enjoy it. aftermarket parts are coming out quickly for this car so you should be able to get some nice goodies if u want to change things.

Hey, congratulations on the new vehicle, but more importantly, I have utmost respect for you regarding your attitude on your health problems. Just remember, the FoFo will be there waiting when you're out of all those procedures lol

Congrats on the new car... it will be that much more of a pleasure for you once you receive the new liver to go with it.

We have two friends that received livers, both doing well, and my wife gave a kidney to her dad years ago.

The friend who most recently received the liver has done amazingly well on the latest reduced maintenance drugs -- he's got his life back.

We'll be holding you in our thoughts, the coupe will wait!
