Ford Fair 2017: The Many Faces Of Focus

The stamp of individuality is what makes the world of modified cars so captivating. Everyone starts with a similar canvas and the taste and creativity of the owner is imprinted on that starting point, resulting in a visual display of their personality. Everyone has their own idea of what a modfied car should be - some gravitate to one extreme - whether it’s purely appearance, or just speed and power with no consideration as to what it looks like. Most owners, especially of easily tuned cars, tend to strike a balance, with the very best cars being an ocular treat and also harbouring serious horses.

Nowhere is this more evident than the Focuses of Ford Fair. In a sea of Nitrous Blue Mk3 RSs, the wide arch example on Auto Specialists’ stand stood out a mile, sitting perfectly on 20” wheels and making even the most ardent Mk3 doubter consider chopping in that Mk2.

Car of the show had to be Richard Scott’s “Dmack” Focus. We’ve seen it many times before but the car continues to evolve each year with changes both subtle and unmissable. The quality of the build is unsurpassed and the whole package is spotlessly clean to boot. There are other Focus’ that use the same ingredients - cage, WRC bumpers and wing, light pods etc, but none that taste just so perfect!
