Why he loves his Focus:
"I love my Focus because it's a real SVT enthusiast car and is actually pretty rare. My parents bought it for me when I was almost fifteen with only 3k on it so that by the time I turned sixteen it could be close to paid off. Now that im eighteen, im really glad my dad bought it. I picked it out because it has a six-speed, is an SVT and (as I thought at first) looks really cool. After many alterations and tweaks, it is exactly what I wanted in a first car minus Brenbo's and a Turbo. Everybody at my school say its the only Focus they actually like... thats one of the reasons I like it.
It's an SVT, not just a Ford; that's why I love it."

His future plans:
"Last mods that'll be done to finish it off completely, will be Brembo front brakes, an undecided brand for a turbo system along with clutch and stuff, Eibach Coilovers, black leather racing seats with 5-point harnesses with matching rears and last, RS replica wheels with BFG NT KDWs. Then, hopefully, a new paint job in Ford's Performance Red."
