Sonic's Lounge & Tiki Bar

Well, what this thread originally set out to be and what it's turned into are two different things LOL So, I'm leaving the original text and adding the Sonic Crew stuff for easier reference too...

Originally as my Build thread:

I'm going to take a page out of Twenty's book and start a thread that just has what I'm doing to my 2012 Focus SE. That way I'm not running three or four threads at one and filling up the FF servers with redundancy. Subscribe if you'd like, or ignore it... Consider this the "car blog" from "That Guy" LOL


And now... Sonic's Mk3 Crew Info:



Now that the logo is set and the crew is coming together... Here are the rules for membership. Take heed those that may want to join, we're a motley crew of trendsetters and boat rockers...

Rules for Membership into Sonic's Mk3 Crew:

1. Mk3 Ford Focus
2. 500 posts or mas...
3. Must run some sort of stripe and/or other unique Mod befitting the crew.
4. In good standing with other members.
5. Approved by me and group!
6. Must have available "fitting" character, no doubles!

This is how I first saw my car on March 9th... Negotiated a dealer trade from Barbie Ford in Denver. Took Rich Ford (ABQ, NM) five days to get her down.

No, that's not really what I paid for her, but makes for interesting insight into pricing.

^^^ very true about the sticker being an insight to pricing. When I got mine it was many thousands of dollars more than I paid. I thought wow, got a good deal.

While I won't shy anyone away from doing business with Rich Ford, I will say I was less than impressed with some of the practices of the dealership after the contract was signed. It was no longer a "team effort" to get me my keys ASAP, it became "that's not his responsibility" and "why would you expect that?" But now a month later I'm glad I bought from the largest Ford Dealer in NM, because they compensated me nicely for their mistakes.

I'll subscribe, what are your plans, mods, etc. I've always enjoyed a good build-up thread. That's what I like about my toyota forum I am on, they have a buildup section. less talk and more action.

I want to mod mine before too long, as money permits.

It'll be as money and warranty permit LOL...

I don't wanna start throwing everything away yet. There are many good parts that until they wear out a bit there's no real reason or urgency to replace (eg. tires, wheels, clutch, etc). Plus, as more comes to market my choices and preferences may change.

We try to schedule weekly quality time, including a bath, but makes for good picture opportunities before she's dirty again.
