Alright guys..... hear me out with this CRAZY idea...

I've been thinking about this for a while, but on the simple fact that it's so insane, I never brought it up.......... But I think it's about time......

I Really think we should sign up with our sponsors for SEMA '09.

Now, yea, I know it's nuts, but think about it.... Were one of the biggest tuning sites on the net...... We have over 60,000 members around the world...... and we have sponsors that are CRAZY awesome. I think Karl and Massive Deserve the chance to really get their name out there, as well as CFM and HT performance.

Let me know what you guys think........ and PLEASE be nice.......

THis is a cool idea, maybe it would help get more respect for the Focus.

That would be bomb. And like Moonpie said, maybe it will get some more respect for the focus, it better anyway

Well.... I'm going to contact Tom and see if he has anything to say about it. I have the means to get us a spot at the convention, but that's not the major problem. I'll have to have AT LEAST 20 people there to help me out and I'll need a car that represents us as a whole very well. I was thinking about asking Cayse......... but I'm not sure if he can do it......

Mike, mail me and we'll talk about it. I know you live close (or at least closer than me) and I could REALLY use the help of someone I know.

I'll keep this thread active until I've got the answer.......

IMO `10 would be more realistic being `09 is just over 2 months away. Feasible, but I'm sure it'd be nice to test things and not have to rush to market.

Also don't let that member number at the bottom fool you. Anything that has signed up is part of it, that includes bots and spammers, besides those who joined and haven't posted a bit.

Then about us being "tuners". To an feeble extent, yes. But look at Honda, Toyota, Mitsubishi, Dodge and Chevy; though some are the CAI and exhaust only fans by the majority they do more extensive mods than any of us attempt. Sure we have some neat one off appearance stuff, but the real custom go fast stuff just isn't common place in the Focus world . . . and the stuff supposedly marketed to be go fast parts is mostly smoke up our asses.
