Member name: WD40
Location: Helena, Montana
Model: SVT (3 door)
Color: Sonic Blue


Why he loves his Focus:
"The Top Ten Things Of Why I Love My SVT fOCUS

1) I was able to drive it right from the Dealer's Showroom to the Track without a single mod and won my class.
2) It's performance stats are on par with cars costing several thousands of dollars more.
3) It's Blue baby!
4) The performance to gas mileage ratio is phenomenal.
5) It's subtle, comfortable, and quiet enough to take on long highway trips,
yet will hunker down and take turns at high enough G's to keep up with the best of them.
6) It can haul a LOT of stuff in the back.
7) SVT's exterior tweaks and interior updates are noticable, but not overdone.
8) I never grow tired of watching the tach sweep quickly up to the 7,300 redline without skipping a beat.
9) These heated seats in the winter are oh so heavenly feeling to a cold "tush".
10) It's Blue Baby!!"

APRIL RIDE OF THE MONTH(2008)

Member name: KLONDIKE
Location: Green Bay, Wisconsin
Model: ZX3
Color: Liquid Grey


Why he loves his Focus:
"I love my focus because its a unique looking car. The first time i saw a focus i knew i just had to have one. A year later i finally got the chance to purchase one. After owning it for over a year i wanted to get a stick shift, and found this gorgeous grey focus at a dealer and had to buy it. After owning to foci for a while people always gave me crap for owning a focus, and not a Honda or Eclipse, like every other teen owns. Once i started to mod my focus people started to love my little car. I wasn't modding it to gain attention and respect, but along the way it did. People know a lot about my car and love seeing me doing things to it, and for me its a great car to work on, parts are cheap, and the car hasn't given me any issues yet. Its been in the shop a few times to get repaired, the car just wont go down. I am gonna keep this thing as long as i can, i love everything about the car, its looks, the power is good for me, and its spacious for hauling things around. I can't wait for summer time to come so i can do some more work to it. Also looking forward to the AutoX season so i can do some more racing with it. I love my focus and wouldn't trade it for any car out there right now, its my baby and i love it so."

Why he loves his Focus:
"I love my Focus because it is the definition of what a tuner car should be. It looks great drives smooth and is a warrior at the track on the weekends, Put it in a Car show it will be competitive throw me in a drag race it will be competitive it’s a great all around car. But my favorite part of driving a Focus is the look on the faces of the Mustang owner in the lane next to me when I cruise right by him in 3rd gear."

Model: ZX3 (w/2.3 Duratec)
Color: Custom


Why he loves his Focus:
"I took a car that i hated and turned it into a car that in my opinion looks as good as it drive. I refused to even test drive this car until my mom made me, and the second i took a tight S-curve on a country road I was sold. I built it by myself and with the help of friends and through all the criticism from non-believers I never got discouraged. It gets all the attention it deserves at shows, is very fast, handles as well if not better than cars costing many times more, yet is still able to be daily driven without compromises. Thank you to everyone who has helped me over the years, especially the GUMP CREW!"

AUGUST RIDE OF THE MONTH(2008)

Member name: SYZ
Location: California
Model: ZX3
Color: Yellow


Why he loves his Focus:
"It's really the only car that I've been able to take to this modification level and not resort to credit cards. It's great knowing that the mods purchased are paid off when they're shipped out. It helps that the Focus is really quite affordable to mod, and I think that with some minor exterior tweaks, it can really shine. I love the way the hatches look especially. Nice and sporty! My focus handles well, is fun to drive, and it's not your typical tuner, so it's nice to be able to add some diversity to the plethora of modded Acuras and Hondas that are generally seen. This car has been great to me; no major problems have plagued it yet, so I'll keep my fingers crossed. The Focus community on FF is also key for my continued interest in modding and pushing it to the next level. There are some AWESOME people on FF, and the positive attitudes keep me coming back!"

His future plans:
"I've got a ported head with Crane Stage 2 cams and Cosworth valvesprings awaiting shipping. CFM underdrive pulleys, a tune and some nitrous will complete my engine mods for the time being. For the interior, I'll be putting in a street roll cage, a wideband and a couple other gauges. I want to swap out my wheels for some RS rims as well. For the drivetrain, an Exedy clutch w/ lightweight flywheel and a Torsen LSD should do it. An SVT brake conversion is also close around the corner. I'm sure I'll be back to engine mods after I get all that squared away, so higher compression pistons and a Ranger crank will be in order. I'm sure there will be other things that lure my money away as well."

Why he loves his Focus:
"This is my second Focus, and I love the fact it’s a great car for the money. Mods are relatively inexpensive, it handles great, its simple to work on, and it comes with a huge friendly, very helpful community like Focusfantics. Also a big shout out to the local homies at www.mnfocus.com, Where some of the coolest Foci in the nation reside."

"This is my daily driver, so I don’t plan on much more. I would like to do a header, and possibly a Cosworth intake manifold. Then tune it to run on e85. But…. with modding cars, you never know what the future holds. If I could find a used focussport turbo kit, at a good price, I would pick it up.”

JANUARY RIDE OF THE MONTH(2009)

Member name: MR.BERGNER
Location: Missouri
Model: ZX3 (S2)
Color: Custom

Why he loves his Focus:
"When I went car shopping I wanted something in a hatchback, affordable payments, and can be heavily modified. Then I found my 2001 S2 online from a dealership, and even before my first car payment I had done a dozen mods to it. I never felt the need to have to go fast in a straight line, but rather something that can attack the corners better than most out there. Also, getting into painting I've come to realize that the Focus has such great body lines and the paint schemes are endless."

His future plans:
"For the immediate future I need to finish a complete make over of my interior including new seats, a near complete SVT interior and a bunch of other goodies. Need to get my SVT header, cat & flex coated wrapped and installed. Replacing all belts, gaskets, hoses and whatever else that moves on the outside of the block. And will be installing probably whatever bolt-ons mods are left. In the spring or early summer I'm repainting it. Haven't decided exactly what color, but it'll be another one-off scheme involving Liquid Gray I'm sure. For the long term, I'd like to garage it when I get a house - get another focus for a DD and then build up the S2. Not sure if I'll do a SVT motor swap, or just build up the motor I have now and boost it."

Why he loves his Focus:
"I love my focus because this car represents who I'am. This is my first car that I bought off a actual dealer, I fell in love with it as soon as I sat in it. All my previous vehicles that I owned I did modify a little bit but because they were just hand me downs or "something to get by" it was never what I really wanted and the modifying world didn't have much, if any support for them. The Focus opened up a whole fun new world to me. This car made me realize how much I love to work with my hands and learn how things work, and at the same time gave me appreciation because I know that I'm doing it. I really didnt know what I was getting my hands on when I bought the ST. I thought Ford just slapped a fancy badge and gave it some red stitching and a silver dash benzel. Once I got home and did some research, I fell in love with it all over again. I knew i was going to have fun making this car the way I want to make it. And from what I've done so far, I know this car is going to keep on providing fun for me for a while. Thanks to everybody for your help and support."

His future plans:
"During Spring break I will be installing Crane Stage II Cames with the Spring and Retainer upgrade
HTP 3" MAF and Light Weight Pullies
and even further down the road I would like to get Coilovers. I think once I'm there I will be pretty content....until I blow something that is, then it would just be built into my N/A beast or maybe even some boost."
