People still impressed with your SVT?

I have had my car for a little over a year and half. It is far from tricked out, but it is clean and I take excellent care of it. When I go in for oil changes, (apartment life, can't change my own) the guys are always impressed by it. My co-workers gave me s-h-i-t for having a focus until I drove them to lunch.

But lately, people have been giving me props on the car. I was washing it the other day and a guy was like "damn that thing looks fast, who makes it?" I figured the guy must have been drunk, but he was serious. I basically said, "it's a svt focus; a low production model." He was also really into the blue interior. What is weird is in the same week, a maintenance worker at my apartment stopped me walking out to my car and asked me who made it.. I basically said the same thing... "it's an svt..." What was odd is that there are 3 other foci in my building. In fact I was parked next to one. Then that night a guy at gas station said my car "looks like it could scoot, like really fast" and asked if it had a turbo.

I don't normally get compliments on my car from non-car people, but this last week 3 times people have told me I have a nice car.. How often to people comment on your svtf?

yeah ive had alot of comments on my car. not so much the outside as when people get in it then they start asking questions. the interior really looks like a much more expensive cars interior.

I like the car pretty well still. It's been good to me and it's good to drive, I'll own it for several more years I imagine.

i always get crap for having a focus, and it being orange. the ones i've taken for a ride in it still give me crap for it, but tell others they should take a ride in it.

i did have one guy ask if it was a prius.

people that arent very car knowledgable always hate on my focus. and a lot of guys are like " i wouldnt drive that it's not big enough like my cool truck "

but then some people who know (even old school guys) will compliment it and note that ford did good with the svt
