I lol'ed at the post, just playing with ya. Your post had great timing

Sonic should post the story in his sig line. Then, everyone would know all the time. Lots of people come into the Lounge, don't read through it (it's a beast of a thread now, I don't blame them), and ask.

Well, in this case I thought it was pretty self explanatory... My screen name is Sonic_Hedgehog... So it's Sonic's car... But...

The story of my Screen name and the crew is longer... Will update in a bit

Okay... Where to start...?

This is my third Focus. First was an '01 SE Sedan in Pitch Black, ex wife took it as her car and took in divorce. Second was a '02 Sonic Blue ZX3 SVTF. His name was Sonic (original, I know) an that's what spawned my Screen Name when I joined the second time (stopped using the screen name I had with the SE). Loved the car, would go as far as to call it my dream ride. I sat in its twin in 2004 at Rich Ford here in Albuquerque and bought my Sonic in Woodland Hills, CA used with 35,000 miles (Aug 2007) on it. In June 2008 he was taken from me by a drunk driver.

I bought a used 2004 WRX and moved on for awhile. Didn't post here, occasionally visited for posterity and see what was going on with the current Focus.

Fast forward to March of this year. The WRX rolled over 153,000 miles and was starting to show its age. I was needing to replace the A/C, needed a paint refresh, etc... Went looking at the Mk3 Focus and really loved them. Actually, looked at the Fiesta and decided it was just a tad too small. Rich Ford found me my car in Denver had it transferred down and I began ownership of Focus #3. I initially went looking for a Sonic Blue but they couldn't find one with all the options I wanted.

I decided against changing my screen name and once again rejoined the FF family. So, now while I don't have a Sonic Blue car anymore I've kind of just embraced the name and embody the notion of being Sonic. Sonic the Hedgehog actually comes in many colors and flavors. It was actually Unida from Australia that turned me onto the green version of Sonic and now I'm set .

And then there's my Crew. It was spawned from a joke between Dyn085 and myself. He was asking for opinions on his wheel paint designs and I being the smart ass said, "different wheels!" From there he vowed to create an Anti-Sonic car and I dubbed him Knuckles.

Then others in the Mk3 FF community started to change their avatars to Sonic characters and I suggested we needed a club and some rules to keep it all civil. This was a joke at first but quickly became reality. Oddly enough the few that started the crew all have their specialties and loves for their car. We found each other LOL...

And then there were decals. And then Dragons. And iHop.

Or just decals. Interestingly, most of us turned out to be of the 'pioneering' mentality.

Not to sound stupid but I like the Oakley sticker, my younger brother is a manager for them and I rep all of there stuff, it's an excellent company to shop from, they sponsor a lot of great causes and are made in America, and take care of their employees. Sorry to rant I just saw the sticker and had to comment

And then my build thread became a Lounge and is one of the busiest spots on the Forums on various days.

So, I decided to start a photo thread in the Showroom section to have a more central place for just my car... And you can see how that's gone so far LOL
