Damn that is sexy. I like the new ST wheels looks good on her. You guys have so much better choices of cars it's not fair. :(

I hate you, but in a good way. That ST is sweet!

You know... I found it strange when I found out that America had almost a completely different car...

But the good news is that from this year they will be almost identical across the whole Focus range. (Just minor differences here and there.)

I must say though, besides when I am on my bike, I have never known so many people evey day take a second look and some blatantly stare...

I love it!!

Very nice indeed. We are picking up a C250 this week. It's no AMG, but our discounted lease is less than my focus payment because my wife works for Daimler.

2006 Chevy Trailblazer 4wd. Pulled a dodge 2500 dually out of the ditch in a snowstorm with it. Still, will probably buy the new escape in the next couple years. I'm never giving GM my money again after the bailout.

I've got a collection going -

Here is my 95' F150

302 with a K&N FIPK, ignition, FRPP headers, true dual exhaust. 4R70W transmission mated to a BW1356. D50 front axle with a power-lok, chromo outers and MM lockouts. 8.8 has a trac-lok, skid plate and the truck is geared down to 4.56:1. It's a rocket in 32" tires :D

It has known to fly from time to time-


Next up is a 86' F350 4x4. 6.9IDI diesel back with a T-19/BW1354 transfer case and 3.54 gears. The truck is currently N/A, but I've got a new IP, injectors, glow plugs, a turbo kit and a ZF5 5 speed transmission. I need to build some traction bars - it wheel hops pretty bad, D60 up front is getting a lunchbox locker.


On to the Bronco's

I've got two 74's - one is a trail rig and one is going to be a street rig.

Here is the trail rig - welded D60/D70HD axles, PSC full hydro steering, Atlas 2 3.8:1 transfer case, 4.11 gears, 5.5" lift and 37" boggers. I swapped in a NP435 transmission and followed that up with a 5.0 with fuel injection, Explorer serpentine, an electric fan from a Taurus and I'm putting a radiator from an Explorer in it this week. Goes anywhere, turns heads everywhere.


Here is the other Bronco - I've got a pile of parts to turn this one into a half cab with some fun stuff including a nodular 3rd in the 9", and a 450HP 351W I had built. I've got Hooker fenderwell exit heads for this, it's going to be rowdy!


Here is what is going into it - 10.5:1, TFS 185's, big cam and capable of a 200 shot :D


I built a fun car too - 00 Contour SVT

Junked the 2.5 for a 3.0 out of a Taurus, MSDS headers coated inside and out , Weapon R y-pipe and a 3" flex and test pipe. The car got 18's, a Torsen T2 limited slip, 8lb flywheel, one stage one clutch, one stage 3+ clutch and the current stage 3 is torn up as well, struts, springs, cv's, solid motor mounts, brakes, stereo, etc etc. Loved the car, it now sits due to only running on 93* and the mid 20's for MPG's.

I've also got two 78' Broncos and a 78' Blazer on the property, lol. Can you tell I'm a gear head?

2012 Civic, 2008 Mustang GT, 2007 Honda Odyssey, 2006 Focus, 1991 Civic. The 2012 Civic and the 2007 Odyssey were bought because of the troubles with the new Focus and the inability of Ford to produce a heavier duty mini van (sans Aerostar).
