Hey everyone, I know and recognize quite a bit from over on the ST forum. So I'm just putting in my intro thread here.

I'm Jeremiah, I'm a young guy. 22 years old, major car guy. I'm a master certified Navistar (International) diesel tech by day. Then worry about my stuff at night haha. I've always been a Ford guy for as long as I can remember and have followed RS vehicles since I was old enough to read about them in magazines and always wished I could get one, any one here in the US

Ford started their whole Global thing and I got excited. When I was 18 in college my 1991 Ford Explorer started having major issues and was becoming a money pit and it was perfect timing to become an early adopter of a 2011 Fiesta.

I had one in Monterey grey, drove it all through school, then to Chicago, and all over the country put a lot of miles on it in no time, also did very good paying it down in 2 years, plus when I traded in on my 2012 Focus SE the dealer gave me 10k when I only paid 14 for it out the door new so I came out good there, drove the SE then waited for a Second year ST which I jumped on.

Love the ST. Will not be getting rid of it. I have bigger and better plans for it. I'll probably be a late second year owner of an RS or maybe even 3rd year if a 3rd year is confirmed while the second year is still in production. I have learned to be patient especially with cars now. Because they're bad investments, and my ST taught me a valuable lesson.

Now I have a fiancé and a 19 month old daughter so a $40k impulse buy is out of the question, but I'll still be around jumping between this forum and the ST forum, trying to be a big contributor and hopefully learn from everyone else's experience before I get my hands on my own.

Anyway here's a couple snaps of the current Focus

Welcome to the RS Forum! I use to live in Alamogordo, really miss the mountains. Do you see a lot of STs running around your area?

No sir. Not many at all. I live in Hobbs, NM I was the first in town I believe. And I purchased December, 2013. Now there are 2 TS and 1 OW around town as well as the Ford dealer has a used TB ST3 on their lot and a new TB ST3 on the lot.

Most people around here are firm believers in no replacement for displacement.

Same thinking here in Australia, Must be a Muscle Car ie V8, Slowly now with local production being phased out and relying on imported cars options are diminishing. I still have and when I was younger enjoyed taking them on in my Escort RS2000. The Focus ST is now the daily and this can also make them think next time. Saying in Australia was only milk comes in 2 litres.
