Well, it's new to me, anyway. Remember that I'm stuck in this horrible place called South Korea for a couple more weeks yet, as I was for the ENTIRE summer! Anyhow, I picked-up the premiere issue of Focus Fanatic at the newsstand a couple days ago.
What's anyone else think of this mag? Did everyone even know it was out? If not, check it out at 5.0 Mustang and Super Ford's website. One of their editors, Steve Turner, started-up the mag with some help from Primedia. Supposedly, if it gets enough support from US, it may go into full publishing! Imagine it, if you will: A magazine dedicated to the Ford Focus!!! I've been waiting for this for over four years!!! No longer will I have to wait several months for Sport Compact Car or Turbo & High-Tech to finally get another installment of a mild tuner car or carpet queen. It was roughly 100 pages of nothing but FOCUS. I nearly had an accident in my pants at the sight of it, and left a trail of drool all the way to the checkout counter!
Seriously, folks, it's a pretty cool magazine. I think it'll appeal in some way to ALL the Focus enthusiasts, including the 'dubz', show-car, autocrosser, road-racer, dragster, and street crowds. It has a good bit of something for everyone. And seeing all those Ford Focus-ONLY parts on page after page was so fulfilling! We're finally appreciated!
Let's all make sure we let the folks at Primedia know exactly how we feel about the mag by emailing them at: email@example.com.
Thanks, all, take care, and I'll see ya on the high side soon...
