    I'm a believer

    Started out in sports cars, got sidetracked by hot rods. Went looking for a car that would keep you engaged in driving. I was ready to order Shelby 350 when my dealer said did you ever hear of a Focus RS? A what, with how much hp!? Gimmie one! My granddaughter named her Pepe' Le Pew....black, not very big, packs a punch!

    Funny. I didn't truly intend to buy mine either. An appointment to just check it out to see what the hype was all about led to a deal and my cancelling another contact (for a used ATS-V of all things).

    Yeah I didn’t totally mean to buy mine either. I had a ‘14 ST I ordered in 2013, had it for 4 years and loved it. I was going to wait, but ford made it very clear they’re “never making an awd RS and they’d never bring it to North America”. Of course in 2015 they confirmed they are making it, and I was pretty pissed. I test drove one in 2016 and again in 2017. I wanted one but the price was just that bit more than I could afford. My salesman texted me after months and told me they just found out 3018 is going to be upped from 50k cad to 62k cad. I got my wife’s approval and traded in the ST for my RS. I have no regrets. Can’t wait til this is paid off though cuz financing is expensive af

    Good story and buy on the RS. I bought my first Focus in 2000 and from then on wanted an all wheel drive one after following the RS200 rally race cars back in the 80's. Bought a 2004 SVT Focus and that was fun for its time. Then when the ST came out I had a 2013 and 2015 ST's. Great cars but no all wheel drive. Then came the RS and that was it. I have mine now....lol. Now I just need another Shelby GT500 in Grabber Blue and I will die happy.
