Nice pics.
I had a similar thread a few years back of my 6000 mile road trip.
It started in Vancouver BC, Canada, spanned 9 states and 2 provinces over 1 month.
I'll link it if you want to see the whole thing, but here's a few highlights.
http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/s...long+road+trip

Sand Dunes recreation area in Oregon.

next was Redwoods National park in california, and drove thru one large tree

Then over the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco.

drove across the Hoover Dam

the Grand Canyon

Sunset in southern Utah


ancient Indian ruins in Mesa Verde park in colorado



the dunes in Great Sand Dunes park



And the Pikes Peak hillclimb 2009(practice day)
the 800hp Fiesta




at the top,
a small geyser in Yellowstone national park, couldnt get the car close to the big ones

Herd of Bison on the road

@02fordsvt Do you know what kind of hitch you have on your SVT? Im looking into SVT's and adding a hitch for my bike was a concern but not any more!

Thanks for the post and link. Those are some great pictures. Someday I would love to do a trip like that. Now you got me dreaming again.

The hitch I have is a homemade one that my dad build for me a couple months back. It's not built strong enough to pull a trailer but plenty good enough for a bike. I can get you some pictures of it if you want to build something, but if not, other companies build hitches specifically of Foci and they should work fine on an SVT as well because others here use there cars to pull small trailers.

Tell your dad he should work for a hitch manufacturing company! And yes I have seen the other hitches on other SVT's that were manufactured, but the thing that scared me was the option of cutting the fascia for the hitch on a car I would have just bought! This is all in hopeful words as I don't even drive a Foci yet. I go to college in Northern Maine and judging by your pics an SVT looks at home scooting down a dirt road toting a MTB!! Sick set up man, love the rims!!

Tug Hill Vineyard

Went for another little trip with the car today and got some more pictures. Enjoy and don't forget to post any pictures of your own.

The day started with my family picking raspberries at the Tug Hill Vineyard obviously on Tug Hill. These images include the only pictures I got while the car was still clean.





Now a bunch of random pictures I took before, after, and during my bike trip. They were all taken on Tug Hill Plateau or on the way down.





This is the governments next great idea; hang sticky bug traps all over the woods to try to eradicate bugs. lol. The real purpose for these are to determine if the ash bore has reached our area yet.



The little weed that could. This plant was growing through freshly laid stone and tar road and apparently thriving.



More random pictures.

Hit the dirt again this weekend. Single lane, freshly graded, dead end road: nothing could be better.

Car and Pics look great! I think you should paint the inside of the wheels silver, since they collect dirt there anyway lol
