Why she loves her Focus:
"This is my first car therefore it has huge sentimental value. I take a lot of pride in how I mod my car exterior and engine wise. There are a good amount of people that dislike how the sedans (in particular 00-04) look. So going in to modding my car my initial goal was to change that thinking and show that these cars can look beautiful. There is also a large majority of people that comment on how the SPI lacks in power, which is why I will be turboing my car and hopefully in a couple years fully build it. I remember my first meet was a cruise and they asked what engine I had and when they learned it was an SPI they joked that I should be in the back lol so I also want to change that mindset because I believe it can be a great engine. All in all I never want to sell this car, I have to much of me in it and I just couldn’t imagine it. It has come a long way from being totally stock, not even having fog lights. My car is a reflection of me and that’s why I love my car so much."

Her future plans:
"I have a full turbo setup waiting to go on my car in spring.
I also have sitting a 98 euro front bumper, Roush side skirts, 05 trunk, 05 taillights, 05 trunk, 05 Sap sedan rear bumper I will be putting on in summer. I will be getting my entire car repainted with all of these parts.
The only thing I don’t have that is in my future plans is coilovers.
I have big plans for the interior but that will be the last.
I am hoping to have all of this done by the end of this upcoming summer."
