Like most of you I'm sure, I'd been following the development of the new Fiesta since it was teased at the NA auto shows. But with already having a car I figured buying one wouldn't be in the cards for a couple of years. At least until the wife and I found new jobs or a more permanent location. Sure I'd stopped and looked at a few when they first started hitting the dealer lots around Central PA, but I focused on my current Focus (hur-hur) and left the rest to daydreams.

Then one day in late October 2010, the wife and I were on our way back from shopping and we drove by the local Ford dealer in Hershey. I see a Yellow Blaze and comment that I hadn't seen that color in person yet. Wife says we should stop and take a look. I take it as a joke and keep driving (she does like to tease me about cars
) until she says no, seriously, I want to see one of the Fiestas. So I say to myself; who am I to contend with the missus when she makes such a convincing argument?



Long story short, we both loved it. Everything either of us wanted in a new car. We took it for a test drive that day and took ownership just 4 days after first setting eyes on it. So, we brought home a new baby sibling for Recall (the Focus). 10 years younger, but just as bright, and just as much fun to drive.



Wife has taken to calling this one 'Mango'.
2011 Ford Fiesta SES hatchback in Yellow Blaze Tri-coat Metallic. 5-spd, SYNC, black leather interior, heated seats; loaded.

Fast forward to the start of 2016....
I've passed 5 years of ownership on the car and the 100k mile mark.

I started working on building what would be known as an OEM+ car - which is taking as many available Ford catalog parts and building the Fiesta that you feel Ford SHOULD have released in the first place. Co-incidentally, that also aligned pretty damn well the spec for the Fiesta Zetec-S trim level sold in Europe. So, being the Euro-nut that I am - that's what I'm going with :)
