Why he loves his Focus:
"I originally bought the focus as a cheap daily driver back in Feb. of 2001 as a leftover 2000 model year. I only went to look and maybe test drive one. I saw them in The WRC which is what turned me onto them in the first place. I wanted something fun to drive with great handling and looks so as not to put a lot of miles on my '89 Shelby CSX. I tinted the windows the first weekend i had it. Next came the Dogbone inserts to stop all the motor movement. My first exterior mod was the mid wing from Wings West. I also installed a set of Goldline lowering springs to get rid of that 4x4 look. That's pretty much how the car stayed for the first year of ownership. I was happy with that and had the Shelby to drive when I wanted something fast.

Well a friend of mine that does a lot of work for Fox Marketing Got me into the whole sponsorship going to show and getting free product to improve my foci further. Well from there it all snowballed into the monster that it is now. Check out my albums below they are a pretty good time line of when the modding got serious.
