TFrog - 2013 Ford Focus S Sedan

November 10, 2012

After 19 years and 250,000 miles with the original TFrog, a 1993 Ford Mustang LX 5.0 hatchback, I decided to make a change.
This 2013 Ford Focus S is only the second vehicle to wear the TFROG plate. TFrog Lite.

Daughter's 2008 Focus in the background, which may have been the trend setter. The S model is a no-option base Focus.
I don't care for most of the
available add-ons.
Of course, the one option I would
consider is better wheels, but that
requires a "package."

The cabin seems more intimate than my
'93 Mustang, and the seating position
more upright.
The ONE option that came on this car
was Ford SYNC, which I did want. And
manual transmission was a must.
Our local dealer actually had two similar Focuses (Foci) equipped to my specs.

2013 Ford Focus SE Sedan Ruby Red

It is no coincidence that my wife had just picked up a Focus SE in the special Ruby Red just two weeks earlier.
Her new Focus had a definite impact on my decision to leave the Mustang family.

We are now a 3-Focus family!
