Why he loves his Focus:
"I love my Focus for many reasons. The first one I can think of is how great the handling & looks are. When I first saw a Focus in 1999, I wasn't really into the headlights and everything. But they've definitely grown on me over the years. This is now my 3rd Focus, having owned a 2001 ZTS & a 2002 ZX3. These cars are so fun to drive, and the second reason for loving it is all the people and all the research here on these forums. All these neat ways people use and share to make their Focus personalized is one of the coolest things about owning one.
I'd like to thank Walter Marcy for all the work he put into my car over last weekend as well, installing the cams, fixing my cruise control, the Cosworth noise fix, and helping me with the seats(which were a PITA but turned out awesome)."

His future plans:
"I'll be installing a Street Appearance rear bumper to finish off the exterior mods (for now ). As far as performance wise, I plan on building a 2.3 short block, forged low compression pistons & rings, and doing a turbo."
