LOL yeah I can appreciate the work put into this but man, that may be the ugliest focus I've ever seen, maybe even worse then that bumble bee one......

I though, have never really been a huge fan of 1/2 1/2 car conversions. I much more prefer highlighting the cars current design rather then hacking in another. But as I said, I do definitely respect the amount of time and creativity this car contains.

Someone on [FJ] chopped the bumper into place:



I think it looks a LOT better than many of the other swaps I have seen on other car models.

I like the graffiti on there. I have never seen that done before and I think that's pretty damn original. Original wins you car shows.....

Well the sad part is he will be the one winning A LOT of car shows when its done. Too bad TASTE is not part of the judges deciding factor.


I can respect the work as most but I realy think it could have been done better.

Taste doesn't matter per se, due to the fact that it is relatively creative and different. Understandably making an Escafocus or a Focalade shouldn't be all it takes to win car shows, but it is better than looking at your average show car that just has a bunch of speakers, monitors, lights, amps and fiberglass everywhere.

I think it's nice, they seem to have made the pieces flow well with the already somewhat boxy focus.

My vote, [thumb] to teh Focalade!

I love it man, I would do a conversion like that in a heartbeat if I had the money and time. It looks like a Ford Fusions' steriod injected baby.

I think the reason why I am not a huge fan of it is the 'bling' factor. I'm too 'up' on the whole, gotta make everything look like an escalade thing.....

Next thing he'll be putting on 20" spinners..... who knows.....
