Why he loves his Focus:
"Okay, lets see. Why do I love My Focus? Easy, because it loves driving hard as much as I do. Honestly, I never thought I would find a compact car that would respond to My driving style the way the Focus does. Having started this love affair as something of a clueless ricer with a POS SPI/ATX, I knew when that one was gone that I would buy another, and that won't change. I love My ST like no other car, and not too long ago, I was given an opportunity to trade titles for an older BMW e36(M3), which I happily turned down. Crazy, maybe. But I love this little car that much."

His future plans:
"What are My future plans? Well, I'd love to go FI, most likely turbo, unless a proven S/C kit comes to light. Sadly, having that goal in mind has kept Me from getting certain bolt ons like exhaust or even a tune until I go boost. Go big or go home, right?lol"
