Why he loves his Focus:
"Ever since I sat in a ZX3 at the Chicago auto show, I fell in love with the cars sleek body style. Once I got the car back in January of 2005 I caught the bug mod quick. Not even 3,000 miles into the car, it was on its way to what it looks like today with almost all the performance and bodywork done with friends and myself. My focus is my hobby/obsession and I spend as much time as I can driving, modifying, showing, racing it. I also daily drive my car too, the car has almost 29K on it, and also is a outside car. So for the miles she has and being the outside car she is, she's holding and looking good. Besides the sleek look of the car its growing aftermarket is becoming huge and will keep building the car as time goes on."

His future plans:
"By spring/summer 2007 I plan on having stage2 from focus sport for the turbo with exedy stage2 clutch/flywheel. Summer plans are to invest in slicks for the track. Save up for a motor rebuild to turn up the boost!"
