Why he loves his Focus:
"I bought it because it was Orange, and it was the only one I had seen. It started out to be a daily driver, then me(36) and my Dad (63) decided to build a street racer since neither of us had ever built a 4 cylinder before. Unfortunately cancer got him before it was finished, so its like a special project for me, I'll never sell it.
I like keeping the car clean looking... not alot of bling. Just enough to make it stand out without going over board. Its truely meant for pure speed."

His future plans:
"Soon there will be a F2 Focus RS front bumper, upgraded brakes, the next stage of the prototype intake, and later this year or early next year I plan on building a 400whp daily driver that will run on 93 octane."
