Well, this is the 2nd focus I've owned, bought it used in January '09. My first car was a '89 Aerostar Van

The 2004 focus that I have, I bought new in 2005, and really enjoyed the car. Originally I wanted a 2.3L in this car, but I couldn't find one in Michigan with a manual, or without a ton of options.

I've gotten into autox in the past year or so, and I wanted to get a competitive car to dedicate to autox and track days. I also wanted a car that had a bit more power. I think that a 2.3L focus can really be a competitive car in FSP, so I set out to find one. Other pro's include, I know how to work on foci now, and a first gen focus can be had for a good price.

Its not that I set out to build a high performance car, I've set a goal to build a car that performs the best within SCCA's autox rules.
