Nominations for June ROTM-BACK FROM THE ASHES

This month we are taking nominations for:

Back from the ashes

If your Focus has been 'risen from the ashes', meaning that you thought that it was dead forever and you'd have to part ways but you brought it back to life, then you can be nominated for ROTM. Examples of this are:

Blown engine
Wrecked and totaled or thought totaled

You get the idea


Please state if you are nominating a member with 'I am nominating ______' and please don't post in here multiple times the member you have already nominated. It makes it hard to try to keep track on how many nominations that person gets. Also refrain from posting off-topic replies in here also. They make it hard to sift through everything and also clutter up the thread. Off-topic posts WILL BE DELETED.

You will need 500 posts to be nominated.

Please click on the links below to see who has already won & the rules.

I nominate myself.

I bought my car in 2005. its a 2001 focus zx3 with just a cai on it. about 80k miles later when the odometer read 145k I blew the motor. let it sit for about 2 years and saved up money and bought forged internals and turbo. heres a set of pics of the stages the car has been through..

when she came home




then pics of it when it died, sitting in the snow for few winters...

Yup, you can keep nominating members until they win. After they win, they can never be nominated again.
