Why he loves his Focus:
"I love my focus because this car represents who I'am. This is my first car that I bought off a actual dealer, I fell in love with it as soon as I sat in it. All my previous vehicles that I owned I did modify a little bit but because they were just hand me downs or "something to get by" it was never what I really wanted and the modifying world didn't have much, if any support for them. The Focus opened up a whole fun new world to me. This car made me realize how much I love to work with my hands and learn how things work, and at the same time gave me appreciation because I know that I'm doing it. I really didnt know what I was getting my hands on when I bought the ST. I thought Ford just slapped a fancy badge and gave it some red stitching and a silver dash benzel. Once I got home and did some research, I fell in love with it all over again. I knew i was going to have fun making this car the way I want to make it. And from what I've done so far, I know this car is going to keep on providing fun for me for a while. Thanks to everybody for your help and support."

His future plans:
"During Spring break I will be installing Crane Stage II Cames with the Spring and Retainer upgrade
HTP 3" MAF and Light Weight Pullies
and even further down the road I would like to get Coilovers. I think once I'm there I will be pretty content....until I blow something that is, then it would just be built into my N/A beast or maybe even some boost."
