SVT Ford Focus

Why or when do you find yourself driving slow?
I drive slow everywhere I go. I like to cruise and enjoy my time driving the car. It feels good when you break necks and get a thumbs up from people.

Why did you decide to go with Ford?
I was born into a family that drives nothing but Fords. I guess you could say that it is a family tradition. I just decided to continue the trend.

What do you enjoy more Function or Form?
I enjoy form more. I like to keep it simple and clean though. When your car looks good, getting compliments and pictures taken is a great feeling.

About the owner
I have had this car for coming up on three years now. I got it in September of 2010 after my first car got totaled. My first car was a 1993 Mustang GT. I have always been into mustangs, since my dad and uncle drag race. After my first one was totaled, I started to look for another mustang. My uncle actually had the SVT for sale, so I decided to get it from him. When I first got it I had no intentions in doing anything to it. My first mod that I ever did to it was a K&N intake and then it just kept going from there. I will never be done with this car and I don’t think I will ever be able to get rid of it. It is a very fun car to drive and I have loved every second of owning this car. I know there are a lot of people that think it is dumb because it is “just a focus”. I like being different and unique. You hardly ever see any of these cars well done. I can respect any car as long as it’s clean and well done.

Special Thanks:
I would like to thank my family and friends for the help and encouragement. I would also like to thank Alex McGinnis for all of the photos.

Future plans:
I plan to change the wheels soon. I plan on going with CCW LM5T’s. My interior is my next project that I want to start on. There are just a few things I would like to do in there. The engine bay is also somewhere down the line. I might go forced induction sometime. It all just depends.
