Why he loves his Focus:
"It has been a fun car to modify, and I love how it has turned out. It has taken a lot of time, money, blood, sweat and tears to transform it into what it is now, and to me the result is worth it. If I had to pick my favorite thing about it I would have to say the way it handles the twisties. It is just plain fun to drive. To quote Jeremy Clarkson it "handles like it's in a cartoon."

His future plans:
"I have a complete (new/never installed) Roush Turbo kit that I plan on installing sometime in the near future. Along with the kit I have collected a lot of other parts that will be going on as well. Beyond that there are quite a few other things that I want to do, but only time will tell..."
