So after trading my Mustang in, due to crappy divorce and legal fees killing me. I swapped it for a 2014 Focus SE, I plan to do some modding to it of course can't just leave it stock now can we. [wrenchin]

Sadly I had to go with an 6 speed automatic, manuals seem to just not exist out there right now.

I want to change that front grille, stock one looks like poo. Put on some black rims, I am thinking at least 18's. I am even thinking some lowering and some suspension upgrades. Maybe go with a carbon fiber hood and CAI to top it off. Debating on exhaust, does not seem to be many options for the SE. Sooo I am debating just taking off the mufflers and resonators....

I am totally interested in seeing whats out there for Ford Focus clubs around Seattle. I really know nothing about these cars, as I have been with a Mustang since I was about 16. I have been a judge for the past three years with daily driven mustangs. Everything from 1964 to current. So I have a ton of knowledge when it comes to Mustangs but.... Focus not so much she's my first tuner kinda car.





Then below is my 2013 Mustang GT that I had to trade in. The car was well on its way to awesomeness. I had done quite a bit of mods to it Steeda CAI, custom tuning, Eibach Pro Springs 2' drop, Camber Bolts, BBK front & rear sway bars, panhard bar, upper and lower control arms with relocation bracket. Also had stainless works cat back exhaust, no resonators it was so loud and just sexy. She was quite fun to drive, missing it but falling in love with this little focus it has a charm to it.








Then my other baby which sits in the garage, someday she will get restored. It's a 1972 Mustang Mach 1, with a 351 2V Cleveland.

Yeah, I have watched both the orginal top gear and the orginal European top gear. And yes I plan on getting out to some of those shows this year. Felix has been giving me the run down on the focus scene. Can't wait to learn more about these little cars!

Welcome to the site. You seem to understand the addiction all to well.

There is much to be learned here.

I don't mind the American version but I do like the British version better. Sometimes I wish I did not understand the addiction to cars, sometimes I wish I could just see them as a thing to get me to point A to point B. But somehow that never happened...... Between my addiction for Shoes, Purses and Cars I tend to stay pretty broke... lol

Simply the best come back that I've ever seen.

That being said, we have our work cut out for us against the Pats.

Just saw that on the news.

The Pats have a history when it comes to dirty deeds.

So are you into Football Chloe? I have to apologize for us taking your thread in a different direction.

What do you think about the '68 GT500 KR?
