Thumbs up Focus GT

Ford should have named this car the Focus GT. When I tell people it's a Focus SVT, they don't get it. So I say it's a pimped out Focus.....still not great.

But, Focus GT has a nice ring to it, and separates it from a regular boring Focus. I think I'll call it that from now on. Who's with me???

I say, if someone has no idea what "SVT" signifies, they are probably not going to understand any other adjective you throw at them trying to elevate your focus to a level above "the regular" focus. Who cares? I didn't buy my car so other people would be impressed.

You say SVT and then you explain that it means "special vehicles team" and that it is a unique and high performance Focus that was made in very limited numbers.

I just say "you know what the Mustang Cobra and the F150 Lightning are, right?" And then of course, they go "yeah..." with that pause like the light bulb is about to turn on, and I tell them "well, this is another of those special SVT models." And I can literally see it as they put 2+2 together "oh, so it's like, a limited production, high-performance model of the regular car?"

Yea, I have had mine called a tricked out Focus, and various other things. I really think it makes people look like a real ass when you say "I have an SVT Focus" and then they are like oh..those cars are pieces of crap, and you can totally tell that they have no idea what SVT means. Most of them think they know it all and are scared to ask what it means if they don't know. It really annoys me.

Yep, people do it all the time, but you can't really blame them. We have different interests than they do. Now, posers... well, they're just lame. I had a person in my class tell me he owned an SVT Focus, but he wrecked it a long time ago. I asked when he got it, and he said back in 2001. Yeah, no SVT then, buddy, and I called his bluff.

I usually don't waste my time telling people what I drive. This is what I say, and this is what they hear, respectively: "I drive an SVT Focus." "I drive a blah blah Focus." I just prefer to show people my car that are somewhat interested, and most are surprised when I tell them everything on it came from the factory that way.

Oh well, on a side note. I ran across another person's black SVT Focus with the euro-package. I thought it was very strange running across it, but I parked next to it anyway. They never came back before I left. I'm waiting for someone to park their SVT next to mine, so I can stop being the stalker.
