    Looks great! Love bronze/gold wheels.
    Next time, save yourself a buttload of time and go buy some 4x6 index cards instead of using masking tape. Just shove 'em all around the tire/wheel. They mask it perfectly, and it only takes a couple minutes to do all 4 wheels.

    Exactly. This car is versatile, but certainly NOT boring. I have my rear seats removed to haul stuff including dogs. I plan on fabricating a removeable, flat floor to turn the car into a little cargo van.

    Especially for my first time, I'm happy
    Yeah I thought about that. The tape wasn't honestly that bad. There is a mild stretch on my setup with a 205 on an 8' wheel, so that helped tape
    Yeah it's a fun car. I wish it had a bit more top end, but beggers can't be choosers

    I live in an area where they are doing massive highway construction. Every other week we have new lane sections of highway in use thus constantly lane shifts. Some folks will be doing 55 and still tap their brakes. I could (in theory, LOL) roll in at 80 and not tap a bit.

    The car just LOVES to be thrown into and around corners.

    I'm going to get in trouble one day, I know it. Couple months back I took a 2 lane highway exit onto another highway. It's a long 1/4th a circle shape offramp I think signs say 45mph max. I went in at 70 and accelerating. Everyone was in the outer lane, I figured I could pass 10+ cars flying down the inner lane...till I was just about back into the straight portion and notice an all blacked out Charger I was about to pass at 80 in a 55 was a FHP. The car has good brakes too. :)

    I really wanted a Fiesta st as a dd. But the wife wasn't having it I just got a new f150 within the last year and half and we built a house. I did end up getting an older focus st zx4. Didn't know nothing about them till I found it. It's a fun car to drive, I definitely agree with you guys it's fun to drive a slow car faster!

    I’m sure Fiesta ST can be had for under $10k at that price deal!! I do understand your wife’s point of view though. Haha.
