And why Ford desnt come out with some "r" or special version of the escort or focus or whatever to capitalize on this here in the US, I don't know.. Take some of the WRX and EVO fans back to US built vehicles.


Anyway, I'm a big fan of this Block guy, it's why I got in on the X-Eng disk e-brake group buy. Now I just need to paint my e brake lever orange and get a clear jelly grip for it.

Emmisions and ford only sells bland shit in the US.

Europe gets RS fords ... Been around since 1960's ?... Lotus engined escorts anyone?

Ooohhh MkI Escort RS1600 with a Lotus Twin Cam BDA engine in it. I have lusted after one of those forever.

Bought and stripped a MKI Escort and Cortina 2.0S once with plans to build an RS2000. Lost my work space and had to scrap it before I got very far.

Be nice to see a few Escort Cosworths running around in the US. Heck even an original MkI Sierra Cosworth or 2.....

So much rad in this:

And I'd take that Focus any day over one of Neil's P-Cars, Lambo, Ferrari's, or other chick picker upper.

ummm, ok - I thought it was cool.

How about a clip of Andreu that just dropped:

If you can do that too, LMK, would love to see you ride. Me, I'd be scured just trying the roll-in.

Ford is bringing the RS or ST Focus to the US I believe. Pretty sure you can already price it online.

Love that video of Danny...he has ridiculous skills! Some may remember him from his VW commercials that ran a year or two ago
