    Rail- It always takes me a little while to come to do such a thing... This is the newest truck i've owned... It will get there.. The day my brother takes out his 2002 Chevy 2500 HD 4x4 quad cab... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img] He just got that a few months ago also.
    I'll pull a few pictures of my past trucks.... This is my first truck that isn't an S-10 [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]

    Bug, I glanced... But havn't found it yet. I'll have to try again when i can dedicate some time... Just like you to waste time i don't have. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_h_32.gif[/img]

    Andrew, the differences between the American made Focus and the German one is in the engine. Since you know nothing about the Cossie engine, I don't expect you to be impressed. However, when our Ford Dealer worked on the car, the Manager of the maintainance section came down on the mechanic for wasting so much time with a puddle jumper. My wife was nearby and took exception. She told where the car came from, and the Manager was still saying, its just a puddle jumper. The wife asked how long he would have the car, and the Manager said for the weekend. She told the guy to take my car home from the shop when it was done, and she would pick it up Monday morning. She said, "Tell me you are not impressed when you are done driving it this weekend."
    Monday came around, and the Manager, after driving the car home, was so startled, he had to see what was so different about this car vs. American version. He went to the C&D site, and really read it, rather than looking at the cars name and closing the book, as I think you did Andrew. This is no ordinary Focus, and the Beamer Drivers know it too!! The wife wiped a BMW Z3 bigtime, and you SHOULD know the Z3 is one fast buggy! Anyway, the Manager was totally apologetic, and never even knew that a car similar in appearance to an American Focus, could be so vastly different. I don't need for you to be impressed, Andrew. just informed.

    Bug, the topic I quoted talks about this. As I said at the start of the topic i'm not a fan of Ford... But as you know the Foreign made focus is better... It's doing great in Rally racing also. Just not my thing. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img] Don't go and get offended over it. I never said it was slow either. I was an auto tech for 4 years... we had 2 of these that we regularly worked on. so i know the speed you are talking of [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]
