FIRST ORDER FOCUS!
PLEASE TELL US ABOUT YOUR CAR, AND A BIT ABOUT YOURSELF AND THANKS AGAIN FOR SHARING YOUR CAR WITH DOWNFORCE MAGAZINE. I own a 2014 Ford Focus ST1. I am one of the founding admins of Ae[ST]hetics, which is a Ford Focus and Fiesta group on Facebook and the creator and host of Focus Fanatics Dragon Takeover which is the official annual Ford Focus meet at the Tail of the Dragon. I am also a member of Anime Cars of the World which is a themed car and itasha group and Road Squadron Car Fighters Coast to Coast which allows me to bring my car to conventions and events for display opportunities. Sometimes I enter my car in traditional car shows and I recently placed Top 25 at Elite Tuner x Drift HQ. I got the the car two years ago, stock, after my first Focus was totalled in a 3 car accident.

THAT'S A HELL OF AN IMPRESSIVE LIST OF MODIFICATIONS.
WE ARE REALLY NEVER DONE MODIFYING OUR CARS, I MEAN IT'S REALLY NEVER ENDING, SO WITH THAT BEING SAID, WHAT'S NEXT FOR THE FIRST ORDER FOCUS? ANY FUTURE MODS?
Of course there are future modifications! In the near future I need to vent my hood and fenders, finish up my aero kit. I recently was referred to a company that I would like to do some custom reupholstery for the vehicle in the winter. And in a year or two when the power I am making isn't special anymore, I would like to go big turbo.
YOU MENTIONED EARLIER THAT YOU PURCHASED THIS AFTER AN ACCIDENT, WAS IT MODIFIED WHEN YOU BOUGHT IT OR WAS THAT ALL YOU? The car was purchased stock two years ago. I have been fortunate enough to work with Atlanta Speed Company who has been a lot of help with both the maintenance and modifications of the car.
