New around there parts.
 
I'm new to the Focus game as I've just purchased my first one for a daily driver. I've always loved Mustangs and have owned 4 of them (I'm 21) Decided I'd give another Ford a chance and I'm glad I did.

2004 Screaming Yellow EAP SVT Focus to be exact.
Picked the car up from South Carolina over the weekend.

car is dirty in some of the pictures, haven't had a chance to detail it yet. Bought the car in South Carolina and on the 560 mile trip back i averaged right around 32-34 mpg while having some fun!!

fun car for sure and a great daily driver and these recaros are by far the most comfortable seat that I've sat in.

Look forward to learning a lot here and buying/selling a lot of parts.

Also here is one teaser picture my current weekend/cruising car

2012 Ford Mustang GT 5.0 (brembos/3.73s)

Thanks and I've busted my you know what to have what I have [:)]
Everyone thinks the parent's "must've" helped but I'm proud to say, I've paid every penny for every car and every mod I do.

previous mustangs were:
1995 Mustang GT 5.0
2004 Mach 1
1991 LX 5.0

Just a few minor things as of now, I wanna get a throttle body or port stock one, and get a tune. That's probably it for performance for now.

I'm already searching hard for an SAP rear diffuser, I must have one!
coil overs are in the future as well. We shall see.

and thank you

hopefully by now, you have found FsWerks. They will be an excellent resource! New coilovers would be around a grand... really depends on what your would like to do with the car and if you are going to auto-x.

Nice man, maybe I'll see you/meet you guys at some of the car shows if you go to any of them.

Good for you, that kind of attitude and hard work is what's been slowly disappearing. Welcome to FF. [ffrocks]
