Hi Guys,

You guys do a great job with this site. Good group of people on here too.

I've been on here for about a month, but I haven't posted my bio, such as it is, but here goes:

I'm probably older than most of the people on here, but I'm still a "car guy". I was born into a racing/car crazy family. My grandpa built street rods in the 1950's and he was a big part of the SoCal car scene. He was not doing rods anymore by the time I started driving, but he'd take stock Fords and make them better. He had an insane 1969 Mustang coupe that came stock with a 302, but he replaced the cam, carb and exhaust and generally "prettied" up the engine with chrome valve covers, etc. He also had a very quick '70 Ranchero. I learned a lot about cars from him and I miss him a lot.

My dad and I restored several cars including a 1955 Lincoln MkII and a 1962 Bentley Flying Spur.

My first car, which grandpa souped up for me, was a 1973 Capri 2600. We added all kinds of stuff to it and it was a sweet ride. After the Capri I had a 1982 Nissan 200SX, a 1990 Honda Accord, 1994 Camry and then mid-life crisis hit and I leased a 2007 Mazda 3i, which I hated to give back.

I've got a kid in college, so financing was a problem and that put new Mazda 3's out of reach. I took a test drive in a new Focus SES and I was sold. I'm hoping to save some pennies and do some upgrades over time so that is why I'm on here. I'm hoping to learn from all you guys.

Blessings,

Larry (AKA: BlueWave)

Help!!!!!

Myfiance sadly rolled his '01 ZTS last week and he has been lost with out it! he sits in the garage staring at it, mumbling something about customizing it and screw it. Yet, day after day he sits there staring. Can you guys and girls give me a hand and give me some ideas to help him out? he talks about svt wheels and roush clips? I'm lost without him. he has no idea i'm doing this, and i have no idea anything about cars. I only know i want him happy and to have that my baby has to have his car back. there was very little damage enough to make you cry though! Anyways whatever links ideas and anything else you can think of... send to me. Thanks for having a site dedicated to focus'. After he gets it back up and going, I swear i'll introduce him to FF. Thanks again. Margaret Hall.

Actually introduce him to it now so he can see other's rides and get ideas on what he wants to do to his. Plus if he has any questions that he encounters he can come on here and get the advice of people as he goes along. Just a suggestion to you and welcome to FF.

Hey guys...

My fiance' told me she had written ya'll on here.... She then told me about it and well, I'm pretty bummed about my car. Margarets a sweetheart no doubt. I do have some ideas on what i would like to do. Since the majority of the damage is to the front of the car i was thinking of an 05' front clip conversion. Possible? Add a Roush front bumper and some SVT's? HID's and a nice lil' drop. Anyway, if you could lead me in the right direction I'd appreciate it. I have a '01 ZTS, White, Tan leather and woodgrain interior, All power options sans the moonroof. I wanna sorta achieve a "luxury" look to the Foc. Thanks again. Steven Busby

Hey everyone. Been looking at your site for a few months now and have finally signed up to be a member of the site. Back in May of 2008 I purchased a 2008 Focus S Coupe in Vista Blue. Nothing fancy about the car. All I have done to the car so far is a K&N drop in airfilter. Money has been tight so its gone take me awhile to customize the car they way I want to.
