Hello Everyone!

I have been browsing this site for quite a long time and finally posted. I currently own a Performance Blue ST2 with an eFocus Mount, 35% Tint, and Redline Tuning struts. I'll be installing an Avery-Denison Nano-Fusion clear bra soon and hope to install an aftermarket intake sometime this summer. I am also a current moderator on FordSTNation.com and also a member of FocusFanatics and FocalJet. I have been a member of Contour.org since 2005 when I purchased a 2000 Mercury Mystique. I traded in that car for the ST that I own today. I enjoy being a part of all of the communities and I have met some amazing people.

A little background about myself:

I graduated from college with a degree in Mechanical Engineering in 2010. During my four years at school I was a part of a project called Formula SAE and in my senior year I was one of two team Co-Captains. My background is in structural mechanics, materials, and manufacturing. During my time at school I learned a variety of hands-on skills such as TIG welding, detailed machining, and composite lay-up techniques. I had the honor of touring the Ford Engineering R&D facility three times and speaking to engineers about the design of our mini Formula-style car. I also got to witness some of the work that was performed on vehicles that are available today. It was a great experience.

I currently work at General Dynamics-Electric Boat as a structural engineer. It's an interesting experience, getting to see Nuclear Submarines on a daily basis. It makes cars look easy.

I had been following the Focus ST since its rumor and debut at the Paris Motor Show in Sept. 2010. At that time I owned a worn down 2000 Mercury Mystique, seen here: 2000 Mercury Mystique I am a die hard car enthusiast and have been for a long time. I have been to a number of NASCAR races and smaller regional tracks. The last few years I have spent most of my time following road course racing. I will be attended the F1 race in Montreal this year and it was an awesome experience.

I look forward to being a part of this community and hopefully meeting some of you.
Dan

Thanks! It was either PB or IS and once I saw the blue in person I knew I had to have it. It is real deep.

It doesn't sound familiar. Does he work at Electric Boat? It's a big company, but I have seen a few ST's and there is a really nice red SVT Focus that parks in the garage.
