Why he loves his Focus:
"its dependable, its different, its fun to drive and fun to tear down and put back together, the boost aint so bad either."

His future plans:
"Future plans are small for now, the supercharger pretty much put me where i wanted to be, above the bolt on class but not into the complete money pit piston slinging range. id like to get the car running more efficiently, and fine tune it, delete the AC, install the race seats ive got sitting in my room, and relocate the battery. Alittle more power here and there maybe alittle more boost down the road if money and time permit. NEW MIRRORS, cant forget those, and of course fix all the dents and dings (thanks walmart )"

JUNE RIDE OF THE MONTH(2007)

Member name: TIRESMOKER
Location: Youngstown, Ohio
Model: ST (w/SAP)
Color: Pitch Black


Why he loves his Focus:
"I bought my 2006 ST On November 7th, 2005. She was a beauty. It brought a tear to my eye to see her all shined up and waiting for delivery for me at the dealership. On that day I drove off the lot with the intention of keeping her stock for my dd, boy was I wrong. The modding bug had bit me hard and as I grew closer to completing my ZX3, something hit. It all started out with some wheels, just something to complete the look of the car. But as the days grew I urned for more power. Then it finally let loose, and now my ST has become my second generation track monkey.

In short, I love my focus because it's the car you never saw coming. I love that compliments I get for it and the smiles on little kids faces as I drive through neighborhoods. It has earned me new friends drawn together by a community after the same goal, the love of these cars. I've been to many gatherings and met great people because of these cars, I've gained new friends that I wouldn't have met otherwise, and seen sights I wouldn't have seen without the Focus. It may sound corny, but these cars have become a major part of my life and have helped me grow as a individual."

His future plans:
"My future plans for the car included forged internals, and a Cosworth intake manifold. One of these days I'll get around to installing the clutch and flywheel, but I'm trying to get the most I can out of the stocker for now.

Also get some R-compounds for autocrossing and take 1st in SM."

"I wont say that i loved the Focus the second I saw it or heard it was coming out, I kinda fell into my first Focus and from there on I did fall in love.
But what i love about my focus is for 1 the color. Limited production and stands out, always get comments on the color. I also love changing peoples mind about the focus by building a clean well flowing car. People know i talk about mods for weeks and weeks before i do them just to make sure i dont do anything crazy. I love the way it drives, I love the way it handles, I love the compliments i get on it, and I love watching people watch me drive by :-)"

His future plans:

OCTOBER RIDE OF THE MONTH(2007)

Member name: XP0S3D
Location: Wellington, Florida
Model: Sedan (SE)
Color: CD Silver


Why he loves his Focus:
"I love my focus because I built it myself, and it is an accopmlishment that I'm very proud of, especially having no prior experience building engines before. It has given me small quarks and trouble along the road and I have gone to sell it many times from being stressed out, but in the end, I just couldn't part with it. Then I turbocharged it and now I just love it because well, it beats the pants off of most of the cars I race. I get a lot of jaws dropping because people can't believe that 1. It's a boosted focus, 2. It's a sedan, and especially 3. It's an automatic."

His future plans:
"My future plans are to fabricate a paddle-shifting kit (one sick boost motherfocus!), get my hands on a Recaro interior when I can afford it, and also to get a limited slip, a transbrake, and an aluminum stator for my torque converter. I'd like to thank you all for showing continued support and offering help where I needed it. I learned almost everything from generous people on the forum willing to share their knowledge with me (Especially massive and the guys over at htperformance). They've helped me to take my focus farther than I could have ever imagined!"

NOVEMBER RIDE OF THE MONTH(2007)

Member name: NUMBER1187SVT
Location: Mansfield, Texas
Model: SVT (3 door)
Color: CD Silver


Why he loves his Focus:
"I love my Focus because it's a real SVT enthusiast car and is actually pretty rare. My parents bought it for me when I was almost fifteen with only 3k on it so that by the time I turned sixteen it could be close to paid off. Now that im eighteen, im really glad my dad bought it. I picked it out because it has a six-speed, is an SVT and (as I thought at first) looks really cool. After many alterations and tweaks, it is exactly what I wanted in a first car minus Brenbo's and a Turbo. Everybody at my school say its the only Focus they actually like... thats one of the reasons I like it.
It's an SVT, not just a Ford; that's why I love it."

His future plans:
"Last mods that'll be done to finish it off completely, will be Brembo front brakes, an undecided brand for a turbo system along with clutch and stuff, Eibach Coilovers, black leather racing seats with 5-point harnesses with matching rears and last, RS replica wheels with BFG NT KDWs. Then, hopefully, a new paint job in Ford's Performance Red."

DECEMBER RIDE OF THE MONTH(2007)

Member name: SUPERFLEA
Location: Tecate, California
Model: ZTW
Color: CD Silver


Why he loves his Focus:
"Why I Love My Focus, By Super "the bean eater" Flea:

First off, i would like to thank every one for the support that was given to me. I'm very much in debt and very thankful. Every single person here on FocusFanatics has been great, very helpful and have also been very good friends! For that, I'm grateful.
I love my Focus Wagon because, to me, it's very unique. It's not something you would see everyday, like a riced out Honda. It may not be fast, but it's very reliable. I've honestly had zero problems with it. It has turned out to be a great car. When my wife an I were looking into getting a new car, we searched everywhere and saw many different cars. The only one thought caught my attention was this wagon. Of course, it was completely stock at the time and all my friends hassled me for buying a "wagon", but now, they have seemed to changed their mind about things.
Another thing i really enjoy about it is the handling. It's a blast to drive and with very little suspension mods, it corners like a champ! Oh, and it's very spaciouse... either that, or it's because I'm a little short dude."

His future plans:
"Well, i'm still in the "thinking about it" stage, but maybe a 00-04 to 05-07 front end swap with the SAP front bumper. Also thinking of changing my rear Roush bumper and replacing it with an SVT bumper. I'm also going to take it into the shop to re-do the paint. And maybe blacking out the headlights. Boost is also in my plans!"
