Why he loves his Focus:
"I origionally hated the focus to be quite honest. I was your typical/ignorant high school honda/import kid. Finally it came the time to buy a car and I no one would give me a loan excpet for Ford so I had no choice but to go with a 2002 Focus SE. After about having the car for a few months I started learn more about the car and got into the modding scene. Sadly the SE got totaled. I then had a chance to start over. I had my options open. I now have good credit status and a way better job. I chose to stick with the Focus but went to a ZX3 witch I will never regret. From day one I loved this car. The options for this car are mind blowing and even to the point there is so much to do to it, its hard to know where to start. I also love the fact its so different. Focis8nt and my self go out to the drag strips, car shows and the people that ask about the car. "What kind of car is that?", "Never seen anything like that." "Thats one hell of a car you got". LOL I love it. Specially when you see the old guys staring at it and scratching his head. LOL
The Focus really grew on me. I seriously get into arguments as soon as I here some body start trashing the Focus."

His future plans:
"Right now I am working on my custom dash peices and re painting everything to CD silver. Also working on my custom hatch install for the stereo.
I also have a plan for doing some type of boost, racing seats, and one day scissor doors. Its hard to say. Im always changing my mind about doing things. Or the thing that I usually end up doing is buying a bunch of stuff then putting it on the car and then changing my mind.
My goal is to make one sick focus. This project is going to keep going. Once the boost is done I plan on getting a 2nd zetec and building it up. From there let the fun begin.
Once day I will have my scissor doors too.
What else is there to do? I well soon be maxing out on the stock internals then what? Build up the engine and crank up the boost ;) Buy another focus? We will have to see"
