Why he loves his Focus:
"Why I Love My Focus, By Super "the bean eater" Flea:

First off, i would like to thank every one for the support that was given to me. I'm very much in debt and very thankful. Every single person here on FocusFanatics has been great, very helpful and have also been very good friends! For that, I'm grateful.
I love my Focus Wagon because, to me, it's very unique. It's not something you would see everyday, like a riced out Honda. It may not be fast, but it's very reliable. I've honestly had zero problems with it. It has turned out to be a great car. When my wife an I were looking into getting a new car, we searched everywhere and saw many different cars. The only one thought caught my attention was this wagon. Of course, it was completely stock at the time and all my friends hassled me for buying a "wagon", but now, they have seemed to changed their mind about things.
Another thing i really enjoy about it is the handling. It's a blast to drive and with very little suspension mods, it corners like a champ! Oh, and it's very spaciouse... either that, or it's because I'm a little short dude."

His future plans:
"Well, i'm still in the "thinking about it" stage, but maybe a 00-04 to 05-07 front end swap with the SAP front bumper. Also thinking of changing my rear Roush bumper and replacing it with an SVT bumper. I'm also going to take it into the shop to re-do the paint. And maybe blacking out the headlights. Boost is also in my plans!"
