Why he loves his Focus:
"With most cars out there, people are drawn to one aspect of it i.e. power, handling, style, ect. After owning four foci, I have come to love every aspect of it. Amazing handling, decent power, great european styling with a great after-market, practicality in both gas mileage and being a hatch back. The most unexpected aspect of the car that I have come to cherish the most is the community. Many other vehicle brands and nameplates have gone through my stable of ever changing cars, but none have come close to the focus community. Such a diverse crowd with such amazing ideas and willingness help each other out is an amazing thing. I owe the look of my focus to the focus community as the large majority of the parts I have changed/installed have been second hand from another fanatic. FF FTW"
