so, you are saying that you won't go to a place to have a good time because the import guys give you crap about having a focus? that's BS! are you really that insecure about your car? or are you the type of people that only want to do Focus things, like a good portion of the Scion community?

Myself and Jeremy have been to quite a few Houston meets and get looked over quite alot.

I still pop up here and there because I have friends that are in Sunworks and the other teams in the Houston crowd.

They give me crap but I still go and put on a smile.

They respect my aim for AutoX so it's beginning to get better.

i'm not trying to argue, i'm just trying to see the mindset for not going to an event.

i understand what it's like to be looked over at an event, has happened to me with several of my past rides, but i never let it get to me. i used to go to meets in dfw where no matter what ride i had i got looked over because of the caliber of cars that where there (ferrari, lambo, ford gt, etc).

i still feel that it would be beneficial for the houston foci to register on houston streets and start showing up at the gtgs, they happen all the time. true it's not a foci meet, but it is an active enthusiast scene. i'd go to more if i had the gas to drive down there all the time.

Yes and the gas for me to drive up ... lol

Also the family takes up alot of my time as well.

But I have been pushing the foci in front of other car enthusiasts for a long time ... and now I find the AutoX, rally and Road Racing crowd to be the more respective.

But I wouldn't mind hitting these meets with you to get the foci count up even more.

i compared the houston foci to the scion community because they have gotten where if it's not a scion corporate sponsored event (ie free stuff) they won't go.

i'd love to get into AutoX myself once i've done some suspension work on my car, it's too soft to be able to corner like i would need to.

you are always invited ray. i'll keep posting meets here from the site then, not that i'll be going to all of them, but i'd like to give people the opportunity to go themselves.

Don't You get it, Man? All those shiny cool cars, and We show up in Foci?!? How absolutely terrible! We couldn't possibly go to that. After all, it's just a Focus!!! *attempts reverse psychology*
