Hello Chris thanks for the welcome,
I can't seem to figure out how to start putting questions out to the people at focusfanatics.
Do I find a thread that seems to address my general interests, i.e, engines,transmissions,etc? Or is there a way to just put a question out there?
Thanks for any info. you could give.

Go to the appropriate board (such as the type of engine you have [Zetec, Duratec, etc..]) and create a new thread there. But before doing that check the How-To's on that board. They are usually one of the first three topics on the board and will always be located there.

And Welcome!

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)

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.

Howdy

Love the site, found it by searching for aftermarket parts on google. I just bought an 08 coupe, first Ford I've ever owned. I really appreciate all the information on this site, and look forward to more posts by people doing mods to their 08's!
