I didnt see any real special focus' when I was in Milwaukee the other night, but I did have a giggle fest for a few seconds as I passed 2 other Focus' in that lovely snowstorm Weds/Thurs about 12:30am. Made me think of Vid posted in here earlier. Neither driver seemed to notice the other focus on the road, except maybe for a split second when my poorly aligned rear wheels caused the back of my car to swerve slightly into the right hand lane.[edit] forgot to add that the reason for the giggle fest was for a second we were somewhat in formation while attempting to drive in a straight line, which is what made me think of said video.[/edit]

Keep an eye out for a stockish 01 Sedan thats been lowered around Milwaukee, you'll notice more for how i drive than how sexy the car still is, but it'd be nice to run into other fanatics while im in town.

i had a hell of a time driving in waukesha getting to my GFs apartment after we went to dinner. Steep hills, lots of ice and snow made it rough for me to get traction but i didnt have a horrible time.

Mostly my problem is alignment related, either something is broken or its just not set properly, hit a few curbs over the years so both are likely. it was pretty heavy the other night tho in N Milwaukee.

Btw, Scott, Mike..it's going to be a while yet before I'm ready to come up there. More g setbacks.

When the money coming in is less than the money that needs to go out..

It makes for a very shitty life. The next 2 checks will be going to this month and next month's rent. Which will be most of those checks. Anything extra will be going to my past due car insurance, and my past due cell bill..and gas to get to work..and food to live.

So needless to say, I'm in a g shithole. And new dampers are not in my immediate future.

Yes, probably going to go with some Ricelands and some ISC top hats for now until I can afford something more expensive when I'm done with college. But I need something to replace what's currently on here, and Racelands go lowwww. They actually get some pretty good reviews in the Miata community compared to other's I've heard. I know they'll be better than what I've got on here now.
