After days of contemplations and hours of anguish figuring out what i am going to do. I have finally bit the bullet and bought an SVT. I am pickin up my car today, i will post pictures as soon as i have it back home safe and sound (not after a good run through the canyon :) ) Well thats all, i can't wait.

Does sound like a interesting Road, Let us know your thoughts after you drove your new SVTF through the Canyon.

I use to run Topanga and Mullholand on bike back in High School. Haven't been in those canyons in atleast 7 - 8 years, but I bet they still kick ass! Use to run Ageles Crest in college, another good So Cal road. Now, in Silicon Valley, all I really have is Skyline. I was up there all the time on my bike, haven't had the chance to take the SVTF up there yet. But the way it handled 17 down to Santa Cruz, I'm sure it'll be a blast!

If I still lived in the Valley, I'd be cruising over Topanga on a regular basis.

Just for grins, how about cruising the west end of Mulholland Highway (out by the Rock Store), or even Decker Canyon? I bet the SVTF does great on Decker. [:D]

Well here are the pictures, i am still not sure about the tail lights yet, but they are growing on me. They are the Ford Racing lights, they came with it. I love this car. I have been following foci since 98 when they came out in europe...and now i finally have one! Yes i am now seeking out roads to venture out on and test this baby out.

Topanga Canyon? Must be in Cali, right? From what y'all are describing it sounds like fun. I'm kinda far away for that. The mountainous roads here suite me just fine[:D]
Oh and your SVT is super sweet.

Yah i am not sure about the back lights either. They are still growing on me. I figure since they came with the car, i can easily sell the lights and get stock tails and still have money left over to put towards the stereo. :)

Whoa. Those tails look like something straight outta the 50's. Not my cup of tea. Looks out of place on a Focus. The rest of the car looks terrific, though. [thumb]

Definately dump the tails for stocks, but the overall car is awesome, what was the final pruchase price?
