Sweet! Nice ride. The snow is all too familiar right now. What part of the state are you in? I'm in the south metro. Do you know anything about auto - x in this area. I found the site and I see we are in the Land O Lakes division. I haven't contacted them yet.
It is going to be way too long until spring/summer. I guess this site will have to fill some time. LOL

Yep, I am in Minnesota and a Ford Focus owner. I am the lucky and proud owner of a mint 2001 Ford Focus ZX3 S2 Edition in Sangria Red. I can't believe they only made 3,000 of these babies. I see SVT's alot and every other Focai on the road except any S2's. It is all stock, as I've only owned the car for a couple of months now. No pictures... Yet.

I absolutely cannot wait to drive my car when it is NICE AND WARM OUT! Since I have not been able to since I bought it. I know this will be an awesome and fun car to drive this summer. [thumb] This snow shit is getting really old.

I do want to mod the car, I need to read up more and talk to a good buddy of mine who owns a 1999 Ford-Steeda Mustang GT who would be able to help me with perforamnce/mod part choices/installation, etc.

I do want to get some nice seat covers for my S2. I wouldn't mind seat covers that look and feel...(mmmmmm) like the Focus SVT seats.. (Fat chance I know...).

Are there any decent shops around the metro for Focai enthusiasts such as myself?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Nickles

P.S. Here is what mine looks like exactly. This S2 pictured is a manual transmission. Mine, however is a automatic. I can't wait to drive in weather as nice as what's in this picture. ~NSF

I thought you liked us over at MNFOC HotRodWagon ;)

I'm up in Duluth (I actually live in Superior, WI but don't tell anyone) and have had my Focus for almost 2 years. I'm currently in the process of doing a euro conversion to the exterior and building a custom turbo setup. My car's a mess right now but hopefully I'll have it back up to show quality by mid-late June. Here's a picture of what my car looked like May of last year..



I'd like to invite you Minnesota guys over to the Minnesota Focus Owners Club. Hopefully I'm not breaking any rules by doing so. Our site is www.mnfoc.net and we have a meet coming up this weekend. Hope to see some of you guys there. =)

I'm Originally from Minnesota, I lived there through the summer of 2002. I graduated from White Bear Lake High School. I moved down to Iowa to go to Iowa State university, but I still spend quite a bit of time in the Twin cities. If you put together a G2G up there, I'd probably come...
