JUNE RIDE OF THE MONTH(2011)

Member name: JEREMY R
Location: Marietta, Pennsylvania
Model: ZX3
Color: Pitch Black


Why he loves his Focus:
"What I love about my Focus is that it's become a part of me. None of my close friends drive Foci, and very few even have hatchbacks. Few of them modify their ride as far as i have, even though my car is far from extreme. So everyone knows exactly who it is when they see or hear that annoying, adorable little black hatch rolling up. Jeremy + Focus = party is here. When driving it, I love the way it sounds, as horrible as people think it may be. I especially love the handling. Acceleration may be a little lacking, but when at cruising speed, the responsiveness is amazing. So is speeding up when entering a corner, rather than braking like all the slow people in front of me. Also, my interior is bomb. I have the black interior, with black leather seats from stock. Apparently, few people have that. Also, the Ford Premium sound system. Yum."

His future plans:
"As far as future plans for the Focus, I really don't know. I'm just going to hold off on big mods for a while, and enjoy it the way it sits. Suspension and wheels/tires is what I like to mess with, so we'll see. I would really love to boost it sometime, but I'm not sure I want to drop that kind of cash on it anytime soon. And I really should build the motor first, seeing as how I would find a way to destroy the stock internals, the way I do things. I estimate I have $6 or $7k in mods so far. I really need to start saving up to move out of my momma's house. So for now, I'm just gonna chill and try to enjoy it the way it sits. Oh, and maybe keep it cleaner, inside and out. I suck for that."
