Member Highlight – Ann Spence

Tail of the Dragon enthusiasts know about the Focus Fanatics Dragon Takeover — and if you’re ignoring just how capable these underrated cars at handling, this build will have you thinking twice. Well, you’re about to meet the badass woman in charge — and, you’ll probably be drooling over her build sheet, too.

About Ann

My name is Ann, I am from Georgia (a little outside of Atlanta). I am 26 and I am a licensed Master Cosmetologist, certified L’Oreal Professional Expert and work in one of the top 10 LP salons here in the US. When I’m not behind the chair, I’m decently active in the Ford Focus community and host the official Tail of the Dragon Focus Fanatics meet.

What got you into cars?

I was able to purchase my first vehicle (which was my first Focus) and realized that I could do anything I wanted to it.
