Why he loves his Focus:
"I took a car that i hated and turned it into a car that in my opinion looks as good as it drive. I refused to even test drive this car until my mom made me, and the second i took a tight S-curve on a country road I was sold. I built it by myself and with the help of friends and through all the criticism from non-believers I never got discouraged. It gets all the attention it deserves at shows, is very fast, handles as well if not better than cars costing many times more, yet is still able to be daily driven without compromises. Thank you to everyone who has helped me over the years, especially the GUMP CREW!"

His future plans:
"BOOST (hopefully the Massive kit will be as great as everyone is saying it will be), rear disc and either BAT or BAER front BBK, SVT Recaro or 09 coupe leather interior"
