APRIL RIDE OF THE MONTH(2009)

Member name: NITETIMEBOLHER
Location: California
Model: ZX3
Color: Pitch Black


Why he loves his Focus:
"First of all thanx for those who voted and supported. Also thanx to my fiance for supporting me with this expensive hobby. I’ve had this focus for around 6 years now, and I guess I’m still not tired of it yet. Hahaha.

I bought the car with the intention of modding it, and its been through different phases, from different kinds of body kits to different set of wheels. I’ve always had the need for speed so I was always bolting on engine mods. The focus sport turbo kit gave me what I was looking for. However I wanted a well rounded car, so I had to have some exterior mods, which mainly consisted of European cosmetics. I guess I became an addict as I modded the interior, the entertainment system, and suspension work as well.

I’m very happy where the car is at today, it’s been very good to me. I love how not only does it go fast in a straight line but can handle corners as well. It’s also very low profile which is perfect for daily driving. The best part about this is, not only can it keep up with the big boys, but it also beats them in how easy it drives and all the luxuries it has, not to mention that it gets about the same gas mileage as it was stock."

His future plans:
"As for future plans, I will be getting a new wheel setup, something different and unique with an aggressive stance to it. Also a Euro RS wing is being currently painted, and I will be putting front and rear night vision cameras. I also have a set of ST170 headlights and a badgeless grill that I will be putting on. As for the bigger mods, I am currently debating about building the internals for more boost, but still undecided."

SEPTEMBER RIDE OF THE MONTH(2009)

Member name: CAYSE
Location: Bloomfield, New Jersey
Model: SVT (3 door)
Color: Infrared


Why he loves his Focus:
"My love for Focuses in general started way back in 2002, when my good friend and longtime Ford fanatic Bryan bought a brand new 2002 ZTS in CD Silver with manual trans. I was a Chevy guy back then, bumbling around in my beat-to-hell '86 Camaro with a tired 305 TBI motor and a falling apart everything-else. I climbed in behind the wheel and couldn't believe how well the car handled. Granted, I could've gotten behind the wheel of a school bus and said something similar compared to the pile I was driving, but then the modding began. Before the infamous Massive had concocted his plans for a silver SVT sedan, Bryan was already well on his way with 5-spoke wheels and a brand new SVT steering wheel, suspension mods, etc.

Jump ahead a couple years and I finally got what I had always wanted, an SVT Focus! A loaded silver 2002 with blue interior, to be exact. I loved it. It was an incredible car to drive; handled beautifully and had good power. And who doesn't love rowing through six gears? Sadly, with only two weeks of ownership under my belt, I flipped it over and totalled it. Summer tires in the dead of winter don't mix on curvy roads; I'll leave it at that.

I had to have another SVT; I was hooked. I loved everything about the car, and I had already drawn up ideas for big mods before crashing the first one. A couple years of saving up money and driving a crap Taurus GL (that I lovingly named LOLGL), I finally found my baby: the 2003 SVT Focus seen here! It had every option except the European Appearance Package, and through a stroke of coincidental luck, my friend Bryan was friends with the previous and only owner (which helped clear up some details and get the price lowered with the dealer).

Jump ahead to now and it's been a long 3 years and change, and the car is now chock full of mods. I don't dare add up the costs of everything, cause I really don't want to know. What I do know is that through all this time, I've grown a strong bond with this fun little car, and formulated a broad plan to make it truly unique, and truly respectable. The not-so-glamorous reputation behind the Focus name belies what a great car it really is, and I'm on a mission, one passenger at a time, to change that reputation."

His future plans:
"This is the goal I've had for my car since day one: power, agility, comfort & style. Many people have taken many Focuses and transformed them into monstrous powerhouses, booming entertainment systems, luxurious Euro cruisers or road-carving go-karts; all of which deserve all the praise and respect they get. But I set out to do what the sport luxury manufacturers do: combine it all. As my interior mods progressed, I had more and more people get into my car and say "OMG, this is a Focus?" As my suspension and brakes mods were done, I had more people getting lost in my rearview in the mountain twisties saying "OMG, was that a Focus?" And as my exterior and power mods get completed, it will be the same story more and more. I aim to start a movement in the Focus community that may have already begun. It isn't necessarily EDM or big boost or a wall of 15" subwoofers. It's simply the best of the mods that can be done while still keeping the Focus what it is: a really practical, really fun street car. It will be soundproofed like a Lexus, put out 250hp or more, have a SQ sound system but hidden like stock, given a sport luxury look and can still haul a 42" TV and entertainment stand in the hatch if I need to. It's a whole new niche I like to call Sport Compact Luxury."

NOVEMBER RIDE OF THE MONTH(2009)

Member name: NCEDILLOS
Location: Farmington Hills, Michigan
Model: Sedan (SE with SPI)
Color: French Blue


Why she loves her Focus:
"This is my first car therefore it has huge sentimental value. I take a lot of pride in how I mod my car exterior and engine wise. There are a good amount of people that dislike how the sedans (in particular 00-04) look. So going in to modding my car my initial goal was to change that thinking and show that these cars can look beautiful. There is also a large majority of people that comment on how the SPI lacks in power, which is why I will be turboing my car and hopefully in a couple years fully build it. I remember my first meet was a cruise and they asked what engine I had and when they learned it was an SPI they joked that I should be in the back lol so I also want to change that mindset because I believe it can be a great engine. All in all I never want to sell this car, I have to much of me in it and I just couldn’t imagine it. It has come a long way from being totally stock, not even having fog lights. My car is a reflection of me and that’s why I love my car so much."

Her future plans:
"I have a full turbo setup waiting to go on my car in spring.
I also have sitting a 98 euro front bumper, Roush side skirts, 05 trunk, 05 taillights, 05 trunk, 05 Sap sedan rear bumper I will be putting on in summer. I will be getting my entire car repainted with all of these parts.
The only thing I don’t have that is in my future plans is coilovers.
I have big plans for the interior but that will be the last.
I am hoping to have all of this done by the end of this upcoming summer."

Why he loves his Focus:
"I love my Focus because it's zippy, handles great, looks very interesting, and it's mine. The Focus is an already fun to drive car straight out of the factory, but with the few modifications I have done so far, it's just a blast to drive! I just love my focus."

His future plans:
"My future plans include the 3Dcarbon lip kit (which I already have, just need to paint and install) a pair of really nice Recaro or Momo sport seats, all stress bars, rear disc break conversion, Quaif or Torson Diff, Stage 2 Excedy clutch, a set of Work wheels in 17X8 or 17X8.5 size, Stage 2 intercooled turbo kit, and possibly a rear seat delete. I want my Focus to be a nice balance between show and go."
