MAY RIDE OF THE MONTH(2007)

Member name: MOFOCUS
Location: Rockwall, Texas
Model: ZX3
Color: Pitch Black


Why he loves his Focus:
"its dependable, its different, its fun to drive and fun to tear down and put back together, the boost aint so bad either."

His future plans:
"Future plans are small for now, the supercharger pretty much put me where i wanted to be, above the bolt on class but not into the complete money pit piston slinging range. id like to get the car running more efficiently, and fine tune it, delete the AC, install the race seats ive got sitting in my room, and relocate the battery. Alittle more power here and there maybe alittle more boost down the road if money and time permit. NEW MIRRORS, cant forget those, and of course fix all the dents and dings (thanks[rolleyes] walmart )"

JUNE RIDE OF THE MONTH(2007)

Member name: TIRESMOKER
Location: Youngstown, Ohio
Model: ST (w/SAP)
Color: Pitch Black


Why he loves his Focus:
"I bought my 2006 ST On November 7th, 2005. She was a beauty. It brought a tear to my eye to see her all shined up and waiting for delivery for me at the dealership. On that day I drove off the lot with the intention of keeping her stock for my dd, boy was I wrong. The modding bug had bit me hard and as I grew closer to completing my ZX3, something hit. It all started out with some wheels, just something to complete the look of the car. But as the days grew I urned for more power. Then it finally let loose, and now my ST has become my second generation track monkey.

In short, I love my focus because it's the car you never saw coming. I love that compliments I get for it and the smiles on little kids faces as I drive through neighborhoods. It has earned me new friends drawn together by a community after the same goal, the love of these cars. I've been to many gatherings and met great people because of these cars, I've gained new friends that I wouldn't have met otherwise, and seen sights I wouldn't have seen without the Focus. It may sound corny, but these cars have become a major part of my life and have helped me grow as a individual."

His future plans:
"My future plans for the car included forged internals, and a Cosworth intake manifold. One of these days I'll get around to installing the clutch and flywheel, but I'm trying to get the most I can out of the stocker for now.

Also get some R-compounds for autocrossing and take 1st in SM."

Tom FTW!
I love the look of his car.
Plus, he created this great website.
I think he deserves it this year.
His car is well worthy of the title, and he is even more.

That is one of the sweetest focus sedans I"ve seen on here. The zx-5 is hot AND practical, and a black, good looking zx3 with a PW??? choices, choices.

Added my vote for Tom.

It's a turbo charged auto Ford Focus.
A lot of time, effort and money in this car (I would imagine).
Not everyone would do that because it's an automatic, but this
car makes automatic cool.

man what a choice to make, all amazing fofo's i was hoping it didnt come down to these 3, i told myself it take a long while to figure out which one is the best, all amazing, all boosted, all gorgeous cars, but i had to go with mofocus, overall it appeals to me more then the other 2, but whoever wins deserves it a lot of time was put into each one of these foci
