Why he loves his Focus:
"Well, to start it off, my sister first had a 01 sedan. I always loved how fun of a car it was. I had totaled my previous car ('94 Camry). The throttle cable got stuck, ending up with a thrown rod and a hole punched in the block. So I then went car shopping. The first day I went out, I laid my eyes on this car. I was dead set on getting it without even stepping foot into it. I took it for a test drive and did not leave until the papers were signed. The Kraken (as I call it) is the most fun car I have ever been in. Its quick, nimble, agile, just all around, the perfect car. I have spent the last 4 years doing anything and everything I can to make it unique, like myself. It's a head-turner and I love surprising people who think "Oh, it's just a focus." The Kraken and I have had some fun times and still surprises me to this day with things. There is nothing like hitting the twisties with a group of more expensive/luxurious cars and them telling you to take the lead because they can't keep up. There really isn't anything like it in my eyes."

His future plans:
"Well, to start off, I have some EDM tails that I am working on getting the remainder bits and pieces to get them installed.
I would love a Reiger Front bumper and RS Collections rear.
In the next coming years, my girlfriend and I will be getting our first house. So with that, my modding may slow down in the near future. But I would love to boost the Kraken.
I also plan on getting more Foci in my fleet. A ZX3 2.3l Duratec for a Daily and I want a Wagon to mod as well.
I have recently done a rear seat delete and plan on doing something crazy with the rear doors (ie weld them and shave the handles). People may say that I should have just gone with the ZX3 SVT if that was my plan, but i like having the rear windows, just one more thing to make me different."
