Why he loves his Focus:
"I love my focus because its the first car I ever owned on my own. I didn't need help to get it, no one had it before me, and I paid for it. I have had the car since it was new in 2001. I fell in love with the euro styling of the car and especially the design of the RS in Europe. I slowly started accumulating euro style parts for the car until modding the car became an obsession. I would like to thank my wife for understanding (well not understanding....more like putting up with) me spending our hard earned money on my addiction. I love you and couldn't have gotten this far without you."

His future plans:
"My future plans inlcude building a show quality sound system to include 5.1 surround sound and a ton of fiberglass work. I do this for a living now and just need to find the time to do my own. I have been in talks with a major manufacturer to help me out and if all goes well I could be finished with that in early spring. I also am hoping to turbo charge the car in the next year as well."
