    Ah yes, the Ford Fuck-us, because it was just crappy replacement to the Taurus that was soooooo great (they're both P.O.S.s at least until they hit their last generation). I'm even a Ford fan and I hate them.

    Life isn't completely over for the Focus in the US. Ford is developing a unibody compact pickup truck based on the Ford Focus currently slated for the 2021 model year. Rumor has it Ford is going to call it either the Courier or Ranchero, both of which were sedan-based Ford pickups of yesteryear. Personally, I hope Ford makes an RS version. That would certainly help bolster sales among the young buyers Ford is targetting with this new truck.

    Am I the only one looking forward to what the next NOS ad? Unlike other yoututber sponsored, this channel makes the most convincing ads and I will start to buy NOZ just to add to the numbers they pull in and get more sponsorships.
