Why he loves his Focus:
"When I was ready to go to college, I wanted a newer car that would be fairly cheap, good on gas, and more reliable than my '91 Mustang that I had at the time. My family has always been into Fords, and that's all we really owned, so I knew I would probably be persuaded into getting some sort of Ford.

So I began looking around at local dealerships, and found an 02 zx3 that I loved (and it already had nice rims, so that was a plus). I had just enough money for it, so it got it... the only problem was that I needed to learn to drive stick. After a couple weeks of learning to drive it, I fell in love with it. Over the past 4.5 years, alot has changed, as I grew and my style changed, so I love how it is a reflection of myself. I also love being able to go outside and easily work on it to get my mind off of school and work and everything else... I love my car, and don't see myself ever getting rid of it!!!!"

His future plans:
"I have a Top Speed Performance turbo kit on its way, so that will be installed soon. Eventually I plan on building the engine, and have a goal of making 350 hp. I also plan on upgrading the suspension, and getting a euro rear bumper."
