Talking this felt so warm today...(Focus love)

As most of you are probably Focus Fanatics, you probably get a kick out of seeing other Foci on the road.

Whenever I see one, I try to get their attention, hoping they'll turn and look; like I would do. Especially if it's a hatchback (like mine). Sometimes I'll honk if I'm that filled with the Foci spirit at the time. lol. I have never gotten Focus props until TODAY!

I was driving along the road when I saw a black ZX3 (pre-05 bodystyle) ready to pull out of a street off the side of the road. Traffic was coming so it wasn't safe for him to pull out, but he saw me coming.

I honked my air horn a few quick times, and what do you know?! The driver waves to me! Of course I wave back.

I swear, that made my afternoon, lol. There is life out there.

lol one time when I was driving home on the freeway with a bunch of friends this older guy in a ZX3 that was obviously modded from the outside (exhaust,rims,shorty antenna) passed us and wove so we followed behind him and then all of a sudden he took off...so then we did too! Anyways we got up to xxx mph for a couple seconds then slowed back down and as we pull up beside him he yells out the window "Yeah these things only go xxx!" It was awesome to see an older guy just as excited about his car as I was!

I came across two Focus enthusiest over three days. The 1st was a fellow SVT driver. We were downtown and he was tooling along. I came up next to him and pulled a 1000 rpm run or so and throttled down. He smiled, came along side and we did a little rip together. He followed me to a parking lot, where we bs'd for several minutes. A honda with coffee can exhust farted by and we just looked at each other and smiled. Yesterday I was cruising down the highway when a ZX-3 pulled on. He cruised up to me (I downshifted to 3rd when I 1st spotted him). We both gunned it, slowed down, and tried it again. Smiles again.

I am still a FoFa

I turn my head every time I see a FoFo - especially 05+ drive by.... I look at the nose, the options, see who drives it..

but since I do not drive oftedn, I usually see them when I am walking..

I never had anyone give me FoFo or MZ3 Props

I never get any honks or waves from other Foci.. But I always get hard looks, honks or waves from people in other cars.. Like Civics, and other imports.. The hard looks started when I put my new Wheels on.. and the honks and waves started after i put my F2 body kit on. =) But no "FoFo" love....
