Newbie says Howdy

Just want to say Howdy to everyone...just joined the site... recently purchased a
2003 Ford Focus ZX3 infra-red...I seen a couple photos in the gallery that are giving me some good ideas on how to spruce this little sucker up a bit....everyone asks me ..why on earth did I buy a Ford Focus ZX3?...well.. like the old Harley saying...if you have to ask ..you wouldn't understand..I'm happy that I found a site like this that contains people like us with the same taste in cars...I'm tired of seeing cookie cutter cars and Suvs that break your pockets..this little midget car can be made to look cool ..you can actually have some fun with it and make a hobby out of it and not drain your next 5000 paychecks..know what I'm saying?...anyways..good to be here...over and out.

Welcome to the forum, and congrats on your new ride. You have made a wise choice in vehicles and in web forums.
I can't say enough about this site, it is great and there are a bunch of wise and witty folks here. So glad I found it. Here you can ask just about any questions about Foci, and get sound advice. The best part is no one talks down to you or makes you feel silly for asking questions. We do get the occasional asses who flame, or want to pick a cyber fight, but they always seem to go away sooner or later.
Welcome and enjoy!!
