Why he loves his Focus:
"I purchased my first Focus in 2004 after graduating high school and got a killer deal on it and fell in love instantly. I immediately began tinkering and modifying everything from wheels and suspension to an upgraded clutch and turbo. In 2007 my first focus was totaled in an accident. The replacement car I bought was a 2000 Jaguar S-type. As much as I loved the Jag there was something missing. A few months later I came across the '04 silver SVT. It already had some work done to it but once again I began tinkering again. The Focus is so easy to work on and its just an all around fun car to own and drive. I have since added another '03 SVT to the stable that I now daily drive. But my favorite thing about the Focus is the community. I have had the chance to meet some many great guys in person and on the forum daily."

His future plans:
"The one big item that I would like to do eventually is boost. There is always something to be done, I have a hard time leaving things alone."
