**Vote for 2013 Focusfanatics.com Ride of the Year**

Here are the final 4 nominees.

During this poll, you can only vote for 1 member. After 5 days, we will have our winner.

In the case of a tie, the moderators will decide just like with ROTM.

Good luck!

Why he loves his Focus:
"There are many things I like about the Mk1 Focus. When it comes to makers though, I'm not one-sided and appreciate many brands. I bought the focus for it's looks. At the time, the head-lights were something new I've never seen before and with a 6-speed, made it a little more enticing. After several years of driving her, it dawned upon me that this car is great for all-around driving; especially on the clovers and hair-pins. Learning of the RS models deepend my appreciation for the Mk1 Focus, and thus, my plans to do my own conversion began for its aggressive RS looks."

Why he loves his Focus:
"Her and I have been through hell and back. Anyone that knows me knows what I've gone through to even get her running lol. It's been a tough transition from the F &F days but of course it's been for the better... Each time I get behind the wheel she manages to make me smile.. Idk its weird but some of you get it, when a lot of people or family can let you down and the trust is gone, but with snowflake aka her name no matter what she puts me through I never give up on her or her on me. Weird relationship lol"

Why he loves his Focus:
"There isn't just 1 reason I love my car, but many. I have met some of my closest friends because of this car, my father and I have grown a lot closer because of it. Overall the car is just a car, the memories that come with it are what is special. From garage days with the guys installing parts, to months with my dad doing the motor swap and detailing the car for shows. The time and memories caused by this car will never be replaced."

Why he loves his Focus:
"There are too many reasons why I love my focus. SVT, Supercharged, great suspension, rare, clean... Too many hours spent cleaning, fixing, swapping, bleeding. I accidently stabbed myself in the face once becuase I was working on the car. Got the scar and never stopped working. It is like the car was my first child. I know that might sound bad to some, but it was my first major purchase as an adult, and I love every part of this car. I someday look forward to teaching my boys how to drive a manual."

Voting ends August 6th!
