Lemme guess..... they brought it up from Mexico :B
The 00-04 focus was planned to be released globally hence enough room for U.S. Plates and euro plates. Don't think Ford planned on bringing the RS here, but the outcry from many many people here in the states is at least I hope swaying their minds...

Sweet find! I'll never forget when i stumbled upon a first gen RS in Lincoln Park while rollerblading. Or the euro ST in Northville during the Dream Cruise last year. It's a hell of a rush, hunh? Thats the benefit of living around here, we see some cool stuff. I seen a "lifted" Flex today. Was debaged, and about 2-3 inches higher then it should be??

How many people run around with euro plates on the front, maybe american plates are a fad over there.

YEAH BABY, YEAH!!!!!!! I almost passed out!

I would have camped out until the owner/driver shower up and then grilled him/her with a ton of questions.
