Why he loves his Focus:
"To be honest, when I first got my Focus I was working for a Ford Dealer and didnt really like much about Fords. The regular Focus was fun to drive. I loved the clutch and the way it felt but didn't like much of anything else. When I got my SVT it changed everything though. The car is a BLAST to drive. If I go more then a week with out driving it I feel like I'm missing out on something. I LOVE hitting the apex on a corner with the car too. I love the way it revs, sounds, and the amount of comments I get with the car. Ive had it for 5 years and I don't believe this car will ever leave my possession. It will be here for my children to enjoy. I have had it way to long and have done way to many things to see it in the hands of another person. The car has really not been very good to me in the mechanical aspect. I have replaced both the engine and transmission in the car along with other big projects like replacing two bent values on the old motor due to a seal in my Intake manifold getting wedged in the exhaust valves. It's really a love hate relationship with more love the hate."

His future plans:
"-Installing a bigger front sway bar in the front (already on its way UPS)
-keeping up with things that break on it in the future
- continue to Autox it
- when I finally graduate park it in the garage and use it as a weekend only vehicle and eventually store it until I can enjoy it with my children and pass it down the line in the family.
- The car is done being modded after the new sway bar."
