Hi, my name is Billy and I am an ST addict.... is that how this should start? I bought a 14 ST3 about a month and a half ago. Seems to be a great car. Silver with 15k miles on it. The smallest car I have owned in 20 years but makes up for space in fun. I have never owned a turbo car and was trading my 2010 Taurus in on a 14 SHO Taurus when I saw the ST and asked to drive it for a few days. My buddy at the dealership said sure. So after four days I called and asked if he wanted the car back or if I could just buy it and ended up keeping it. I have done the Cobb rear motor mount, window tint and the turbosmart 50/50 valve already. Springs showed up today and I figure tuner is next. I have had fast cars in the past... SRT Charger, RT Magnum, six fox body 5.0 Mustangs and a few others so used to V8 power but so far this car has been impressive. Maybe this car is my midlife crisis fix at 41? I guess we'll see.

As long as you don't plan on us helping you overcome your addiction, that's a valid way to begin. Hahaha welcome to the Forum! Great choice in car(s)! We're gonna have to see pictures of your car for identification and validation though, standard procedure. ;)


Edit: You borrowed a car from the dealer...? LOL how the heck does that work I want in

HA! Yeah, two guys I went to highschool with... one is the used car manager, the other is the GM of Pearson Ford on the north side of Indy. We also umpired baseball as kids together. Known them a while. Made it easy to pick something fun to drive. My brother bought a 17 f250 deisel the week prior to that for 67k so I think they felt comfortable with the four day test drive. lol. And pics to come once I figure that part out.

Welcome and I see you're in Marion County and a vet. What part of Indy do you live in? I grew up in Noblesville and lived in Avon for 12 years. My last stint in Indy I worked right downtown at the Federal Courthouse. I always use the vet plates too, because you never know it could give you the edge in a traffic stop. Haha.

I have fond memories of Castleton from High School. It was our closest movie theater in the area. Lots of dates at that theater! Welcome again!
