I guess this is a re-introduction for me. I sold my 2006 Focus a year after buying it to come to Japan. I worked in Tokyo for a few years and as much as I wanted one a car was hardly practical.

I now live on an island near Okinawa and just picked up a 1998 (99 for the US) Mazda Miata 1.8l. It is a 6 speed with LSD and a lot of fun to drive. Since I am back into the car scene I decided to check out what's been going on with the focus world.

Thanks! I really like the new focuses. I'm not ready to give up my Roadster, but I wish there were more of them here in Japan.

Those lightnings are beautiful trucks!. I bought a wrecked one about 3yrs ago that was hit in the front right. Still drivable but need work. Before I could even get it home I had it sold. I've alway liked them. Yours is very very nice!

I always wanted one.Been chasing one since 2003 and finially got this one about 2 years ago.Got a good deal on it with everything on it.It made 440 rwhp to the ground and its just about to turn 126k miles on it.Been in some mags and won a few shows with it.

I cant wait to get my hands on her car.
