Well, I'll just introduce myself for any newcomers haha.

My name is Micah. I am 17 years old, and I am from Manitowoc, Wisconsin, a small city of about 37,000 on the coastline of Lake Michigan. About half an hour south of Green Bay and about 2 hours north of Milwaukee.

I found the site back in July, when I had LED light strips under my headlights and was trying to figure out wiring. Made an account on July 3, posted a thread that got ZERO replies (lol), and browsed the site more and more. Didn't get really active until Riley (MineTwine45) started a Random Thread to help with his thread-derailing tendencies. Found myself at home with the guys like Jef (FreeFocus), MineTwine, and KK. Have been a very active member ever since!

My car is a 2004 Focus ZTW Wagon. But it gets better: I have the much coveted 2.3L Duratec engine! Love that puppy!

Future plans for the car... Well... Lol

Turbo is on everyone's minds... But yeah, that's for a couple years down the road.
Upgraded cams.
Intake manifold.
Headers.
Ecuador
Exhaust system... But I like my muffler delete setup :D
Slammed... Ok maybe not slammed... But a reasonable 2 inch or so drop, maybe coilovers.
SVT 5 spoke wheels--because EAPs are overplayed.
Motor mounts.
Swap the auto trans for a five speed.

Whew... Lots of typing...

Pics to come haha.

Really? Thought you picked that up in my build thread and the random thread haha.

Anyways...

My parents purchased the car for an undisclosed amount (hehe) back in 07 or 08. I'm guessing it was around $10-11k. My mom really wanted a Subaru Forester (which I really wouldn't have minded), but that was out of price range. So we stuck with the FoFo. She drove the thing for about 7 years. Then, I got my first car: our old 2000 Dodge Grand Caravan. 192,000 miles on the 3.8L V6 and she was still going. Then a fateful day: I crashed her into a bridge... Too fast for conditions, and the melted snow was re freezing into black ice. Totaled. So it was back to square A.

Then my parents decided they wanted my mom to drive a Jeep like my dad was. So, they got my mom a 2004 Jeep Liberty Rocky Mountain Trail edition. And I got the Focus!

But, erm, about a week into having that, I put her in the ditch. This time I don't know what happened. But I almost rolled her and snapped part of the front bumper off.

So that's why I got the aftermarket one haha.

My name is Stephen, and I drive a FERD FERCUS.

That's about it. :D

Well I guess I'll say a bit more... I drive a 2001 Ford Focus ZX3 that has been my daily driver and in my possession for the last 4 years. I've loved just about every second of it. Too many mods to list, some of you may have seen my build thread.

Hey Stephen. I see you found the TakeOver. Get some Pictures in the hunt up and join the crew! I will second the too many mods to count. Almost as many bumpers as you have had sets of wheels.

Lol The formal one may be the only exception... but yeah I have 4 years worth of photos on my computer and Photobucket so I'll see what I can find!
