Oppps! I shoulda done this yesterday! Anyway, my 2001 Dodge Stratus was totaled about 6 months ago, and I've been looking for a fun car to drive with better than average mileage. I should say that I have a 1971 Dodge Challenger in the garage, but I didn't build it to be a daily driver. So the search began. I was hooked on the new Honda CR-Z, but I decided I needed a backseat. Enter the 2012 Ford Focus. I love that it's built in Detroit, and would really like to spend my money on an American made car. So far I've been in love with it, and I aim to pick up a 2012 hatchback Titanium when it comes out in a couple of months. I look forward to discussing all things Focus with you!

Hello all. My brother showed me this website when i first got my focus a couple months ago and i just now decided to check it out. I must say, there is a TON of info here. Almost too much to comprehend at once.

I drive a Red 2011 Focus SEL. I don't have any mods on it yet and i was wondering what a good place to start would be?

Howdy... I found this site while on the hunt for my next toy (SVTF). So, I decided to stick around. Too bad, you're stuck with me now.

Anyways, I'm a pharmacy technician (hence the screen name) by trade, and a wrench by habit/ hobby. I love tinkering, and my rides show it. I have a lifted 98 Cherokee as my daily driver now, and my 02 Ducati as a summer time toy.

I just got married to my beautiful, wonderful, understanding wife on Sept 11, 2010. She's a Ford fan (she's on ZX2 number 3) so she's been encouraging me to return to the Blue Oval.

I used to work for Cosworth Technology (now Mahle Powertrain) back when they were cool. I actually spent time in the Powerworks division, working on the doomed F150 kit. I miss the work environment and the crew there, but the pharmacy pays the bills too.

Well, that's it for now. I'm sure you'll hear plenty from me.

Thanks! I work for a specialty pharmacy called Health Dimensions. We do all of the work that CVS, Walgreen, and even hospitals either can't or won't. Things like hormone therapy, injectable ED meds (ouch), re-dosing (ie: a tablet that comes in 10mg/20mg only, we make a 15mg), pain management (Hydromorphone, morphine, clonidine, ziconotide, fentanyl, etc) and also vet meds. It's pretty neat. Stressful, but neat.
