The Focus Fanatics Family

I have owned several Ford Focus over the years but not until a little while ago I joined the forum. I have met so many great people who have become great friends and I want to say thanks. The first person I met was SVT_Kid, I had a problem with my rear sway bar and not knowing me he invited me to his home and fixed my car and did not ask for one penny. I in turn have helped other members on this forum because if we pass along a good deed it comes back ten fold in goodness. Thanks to my FF Family.

We definitely have an awesome group of people on this site, for sure. When i wrecked my car, a dozen people, some of whom I'd met, several who I had not, all pitched in and helped me rebuild it. I bought pizza for everyone, but sometimes they even chipped in on there too! I love my focus fanatics family!

I couldn't agree more. I have an account with an unhealthy amount of Blogs/Forums. But this one is by Far the best to be a part of.

I agree with everyone, before joining this site a lurked on a couple of other Focus forums and this site was by far the best. People here seem to genuinely care about each other and not so much about comparing penis sizes. Plus the mods here do a great job of keeping out the troublemakers.

I also voted for you matmatician ha.

I love this forum and have seen many changes through the years. I've also been on here long enough to see the Houston crowd grow and shrink and grow again. It's great hanging out with people who love cars and the focus as much as you. It's also weird how meets can turn into install meets lol

This site definitely has the most helpful and friendly people, and I always appreciate the assistance I receive by our more knowledgeable members. :)

Yeah, I haven't been on quite as long, but the Northwest crew sounds like it used to be pretty big, then it got real quiet, and now we're getting pretty big again. The Ocean Shores Focus Wars is going to be a HUGE event! We got them to shut the airport down for the day so we could do speed runs!!
