See any other Focuses parked next to mine? Yup, that's right....I was the only one in my class this year. Win by default. :(


Afterwards, with the car still clean after 18 hours of work on it, I parked for some decent pictures:


I love how this shot turned out:

Yeah, I do a thorough detail before this show every year. Everything gets touched. I even took off the wheels to clean all around those and also clean up the wheel wells.

I spent about 6 hours on the engine, 5 hours on the interior, and 7 hours on the exterior.

It would have been more if I needed to clay bar the car, but it was still smooth from the last time I clayed it.

Nice work Ataru! At least you won... [thumb]
Well, technically I couldn't have lost. [rofl] The win would have meant something if I had some competition. I lost last year with just one other competitor so who knows what would have happened this year if other people entered my class.

car and driver just did an artical on the gt500 compared to the vette and the vette spanked it they said the gt was way to heavy to do much
that article is a bunch of B.S. They said the Cobra will run 12.8 or a 12.9 I believe, which is horse crap. It is going to be a low 12 car STOCK. The vette is capable of high 11s stock, and they said it did like 12.7. They totally underrate the quarter mile times in those mags.

Nice job! [thumb]
I like the "presentation" with Sonic in the front seat, and the items in the hatch. [;)]

Couple questions:
1) What's with the hood prop (instead of the stocker)? I also see a Mustang using one (New Elenor).
2) Did you paint the underside of your hood, or was it already painted fully?
(I've got some nice green primer in the middle of mine. [mad])
