Having chips in your paint used to be ever so easy. You would simply tuck both your fist in a pocket, lower your head gingerly underneath the rim of your hat and generally suggest that you had a neck injury. No wait. Thats when you get rear-ended. Either way. Sadly its the same story when some careless lady lets her car door swing open and slap your Focus with her jeep and then asks in a gruff tone that suggests she's been gargling in chewing tabacco...

"Geez...sucks to be you!"

No, ma'am. It sucks to be you. I love my car, and now your going to pay for it. Whats that? You have insurance? Great! Now clearly I didn't just see that door hit the side of my car, but also the mirror that was scrapped last year during a hurried backing down my driveway. Got it? Excellant (I say with just a hint of a Monty Burns accent).

So I dropped my SVTF off at the body this afternoon to get it taken care of. Naturally what did they give me as a rental? An '09 Focus.



Its amazing. I've got such a split opinion of this car after one afternoon of driving it. It doesn't hug the road like my SVTF does. It doesn't handle like my SVTF does. It drives different. It is different...and it was brilliant. No, really. In a lot of respects its the clash-opposite of what I'm used to, and dare I say it? I liked it (and I totally didn't think I would. My wife already "stole" it this afternoon and took it to work and is already trying to convince me that she needs one.

...and I might just have to get her one. [;)]

Nope. Its not an SVTF, and it doesn't have to be. Its loaded with features, was a pleasure to drive, and even had Sirius radio. To paraphrase Katy Perry, I drove an '09 Focus...and I liked it.

you know i drove an 08 focus a co-worker of mine had for a day but it was a super duper base model and everything inside felt plasticy. Maybe the 09's are better, they certainly are growing on me even though i know my svtf is better.

wow, she actually said that? SHE swung her door into YOUR car and said "sucks to be you"?! ARE YOU *U*KING KIDDING ME?! wow, but great job of using your head, i'd have just said, "no ma'am, sucks to be YOU" as i dragged my key all up and down the side of her car as i left.

lol, so what'd she say after you mentioned the insurance and mirror? gave her info...willingly?!
