Focus/fiesta St

I have been blessed with being part of the ST family for nearly 10 years. Having worked for the largest Ford dealership in South Africa, we was involved with the ST225 and the Fiesta ST. Both amazing vehicles (even compaired to Mazda 3 Mps). A group of owners started a forum (fordstownerssa.co.za), and became a great success. Myself and 2 friends started a Advanced Driver Training center mainly focusing on the ST cars and there was an amazing responce. The clients loved the fact that they could take their own car onto the skid pan and the race track. We believed that it was pointless teaching people to drive cars that were not theirs. We were involved with the Sport Car Shoot-out that was held in Durban, just before the A1 Grand Prix and even put a few Lambos and Ferrari’s to shame. Guess that is why we were not invited to the Ferrari open day a few months later. I was honered to drive a Focus wrc clone as a company car for quite a while and had a few Fiesta ST’s after that. I hope that Ford usa will offer the same amount of passion to the ST brand as Hal Feder did in South Africa.

ford u guys are losing money & customers everyday! u would of sold me personally at least 3 cars by now if u would make the focus st, fiesta st, & a the fusion sport from a couple years ago, if all of them were available in a 2 door instead of 4. i went to vw & hyundai to get a nice looking 2 door hatchback. i mean why does europe get all the best fords? i know u would of sold a crap load of those awesome ford focus rs models! i would give my left leg to have one of those, what an incredible car that was! there are a lot of paraplegics that drive who want the focus st or the fiesta st, but they only drive 2 door vehicles so they can flip the passenger seat forward so they can get their wheelchair in the back. also im now ready to replace my ranger but i cant get that awesome new european ranger with the diesel so ihave to look elsewhere. big mistake guys, there is still a huge place for mini trucks. why dont u look at doing a mini raptor with the eco-boost in it, id buy one in a heartbeat! hell even better if it looked like a trophy truck. think about it cause im not coming back until some of these things are available
what are guys doing?
