Focus on this

Written by : Posted on June 8, 2011 : 12 Comments

I have seen almost everything done, from Honda’s to Kia’s every car has potential. When most people think of a Ford, they think of either a Mustang or a truck of some sort. This being said, when most people think of modifying a car they assume it is a dude, there’s no way a girl could ever modify a car……right? Wrong! To be honest, the more sensible sex has been modifying their cars as long as man and in a lot of cases they do it better. Something along the lines of matching colors goes a long way in the car scene too! Armanda Zukic owns this Ford Focus and has done every single modification to it.

I love this car and seeing a Focus done right is something rare. Armanda has taken a lot of cues from the European and SVT model and rolled them into her car. Choosing to think outside the box of the typical fitment on a smaller hatch, she attacked the fenders and really didn’t have mercy on them. Settling on a set of Mustang Cobra reps, the wheels are a 17×9 all around with a final offset of +20. Armanda then took a set of Falken 512 tires, 205/40′s to be exact and stretch them over the wide-set wheels.  The pictures do not do this Focus justice, because watching this vehicle roll on the streets is a real treat. Just Stance would like to thank Armanda for her cooperation and sick whip.

    “Has done every modification to it”  LOL….You mean her friends did.  Also helps when Mommy and Daddy are helping pay for the parts/car as well as getting nice discounts on parts from Dom Engineering.  She copied the wheel setup/specs off someone who already did it so zero thought was put into that.  Also she didn’t know what backspacing even was to give you an idea of how much she really knows about cars.  She is a firm believer in  adding toe to the front suspension and ask to see the hack job done on her sturt towers…haha.  Car is really deserving of a feature.

      wow….well your just a fine hater now huh? Truth is your such a truth speaker you won’t even post your name up to get an idea on who is doing the hating. If you have a comment on the article that is relevant to the car feel free to share it, if you want to talk smack carry on to another site. 

      -thanks, your friendly hater-aide patrol
