FOUND: Euro Modeo Wagon in Louisiana!! [PICTS]

So I'm waiting to get my oil changed on sat. morning......so I have fresh oil for the track day, and I see this silver wagon......looks kinda like a volvo, but not really...a LITTLE too rounded for that, and the rear tail lights are REALLY tall and skinny.....and the bumpers are short.......and it looks european.....especially with the orange side markers on the front fenders.....
SO i am looking at it.....looking....and I see the ford emblem on the center caps......


I don't know what it is...............So i get outta my car, and start walking around it...
...looks like the new foci front lights.....
....got a 5 speed in it......
...then, BINGO.....I get to the side B pillar.....a nice little Ghia emblem greets me.......now I know it's euro for SURE...

Mondeo on the back hatch...and TDCi on the right side.....Now that I know what the heck this thing is.....
Diesel too cool...

It was in for a new lower front valance, the one on it was cracked...and they have to order it from Ford UK.....
It's an Officer on post (Blue Decal)........musta got it shipped from his last duty station over seas....
I took LOTS of picts.......
here ya go:

Interior shot (DID have Digital climate controls, and Kilometers on dash.....)


Ghia on B Pillar:


Front:


Fender with marker:


TDCi emblem:


Mondeo emblem:


Pass. Side:


rear shot:


The tech said there is a 4-door european one driving around that was there before too.....haven't seen this one yet....


SIDE NOTE: idiot in a newer foci ran INTO the closed gate at the entrance that morning:


Idiot.......his Wal-Mart vest was in the back seat.......

When I'm in the Armed Forces, I'm gonna get stationed in Germany. Then I'll buy a RuF Rt12 and a LHD Focus ST and get them shipped to the US. Hehe, I'll be the only guy in Michigan with a real Euro ST.

What I want to know is how he got it approved by customs... I'm in Italy and it's common knowledge that we can't bring Euro Spec cars younger than 25 years old home without considerable expense to meet DOT standards. Hmmmm, might have to look into this more...
