Old lurker, rise from your grave....

Hey guys & gals, Tom here. I joined shortly after placing an order for a 2012 SE hatch, didn't log in too much after getting the car but have been lurking as this is STILL one of the best car forums on the net (seriously, the community here rocks) Anywhos, enough brown-nosing, I'm back and soon the 2012 SE will be replaced... with a 2013 ST! I'm getting a base model in black which I am more than fine with. I retain most of the options that I had with the SE, save my heated seats. I spent most of yesterday afternoon working numbers at the dealership and tomorrow (err, later today now) all I have to do after work is drive down to the dealership, sign some paperwork and it's mine. Pics to come...

Still comes with the ST engine, and that's the most important part!!

And the ff community is the best out there. I'm having people from here help rebuild my focus and so far, everyone has shown up and worked for the price of pizza. Never would have believed all the support I'd get with it! And FF made it all possible, so no joke when you say it's the best!! It really is!

Heeeeeeeeeeeeeeee's home! That ST engine is amazing (as is the rest of the car). Was amazed how well it behaves around town. I plan on keeping it stock...for now. Gonna be with this car for a long time so no need to rush the mods. Though I would like to drop it just a little. Enough yaking though, here are the pics.

That kind of stuff is what's awesome about this place. Took a look through your build thread and hope you get everything worked out! Looking forward to seeing everyone coming out to Focusfest.

Thanks to you both! The kids are into cars just about as much as me and love the ST. It's gonna be a long while before either one of them get a chance behind the wheel though.

Cute kids! Congrats on car and kids! Question, how do you get away with getting a new car when the wife drives a Galant?
