VEHICLE STORY

My first car was a 2005 Ford Focus ZX3 Base. It came with a manual. I learned to drive stick on that car, and ever since I became a car guy. The Focus was such a good handling car and being paired with a manual, made it such a good driving show experience. However, it was down on power, lacked a sporty enough suspension, and was a base model coming with hand crank windows and locks, and it had hubcaps It wasn't over though. I discovered the SVT Focus. For just a little bit more than the price of my car I got everything that was left to be desired from my focus. I got a sportier suspension, more power coming from a more tuned engine, and it came with sporty leather seats electric windows and locks. And best of all a nice exhaust note. I sold my old focus and soon enough purchased a 2003 ZX5 SVT Focus. I fell in love with the car fast as it is extremely fun to drive, really confidence inspiring in the corners, and looks absolutely mean. A year later, I'm very happy to own this car and I am looking forward to this ongoing project as both my daily driver and canyon carver. Thanks for reading, Kal
