    The Story of Dewey, the SG RS2 (A Love Story?)

    Well, I figured I'd drop a few lines here to tell the story of Dewey: My RS2 that I've been anxiously waiting to arrive from Saarlouis.

    It's been a bit of a wait but I know that many others are out there and have been waiting just as long if not longer than me to get info on their build progress.

    It all started with a spyshot of a Ingot Silver Mule at the test track in Nürburgring that caught my eye.

    Then I attended Ford Nationals in Carlisle, PA and I was actually able to see and touch the FoRS while it was on display.

    That's all it took for me to decide to order a SG with the same specs from my local dealer. (That was October 30th, 2015)

    After a early selected for scheduling and initial build date blunder, Dewey was finally built on 3 May 2016, released from the factory and in transit to port on 19 May 2016.

    I've been waiting to hear that Dewey was loaded on to a ship and heading to Jacksonville, FL then off to Winston-Salem by rail, and finally by truck to the dealer here in Fayetteville.

    It would appear that I missed Zenith Leader and I'm hoping that Phoenix Leader will bring me some joy and Dewey home.

    The urge to go all out on mods has been curbed somewhat and I've only picked up the following so far for Dewey:

    I just wanted a new car out of the blue. Thought I love AWD but don't like the STI at all. I've already had an EVO IX and EVO X. Came close to buying another IX but then said no. Looked into the GT350 but my wife said " No, you had a GT500 and you didn't LOVE it."

    Then I remembered about the RS, and the last time I had seen anything on it there wasn't really a release date. Well I checked and boom! Order banks had already been open for 2 1/2 months so I thought I was screwed. Then I was taking to my boss about it and he's family friends with the owner of a Ford dealer and he would talk to them. Couple hours later I received a call stating that they indeed have an allocation and that I could configure it however I wanted.

    I was worried cause I had been reading on this forum about all the ADM and I just won't pay more than what the manufacturer suggests it's worth. So that was my first question, and he said " Oh with the people you know, MSRP is a definite". I gave him my order via email and he sent me a DORA in about 3 hours.

    I will say this, I most likely wouldn't have ordered the car unless it came in a sweet color. After seeing the Nitrous Blue online that sealed the deal for me. I knew the car was going to be special but I also have to like the look and color. When I finally seen the Nitrous blue in person (when I picked up my car) for the first time I knew I made the right decision for myself.

    I love every aspect of this car. I just hope they are a good daily driver and aren't in the shop all the time. Only time will tell.
