I am really not surprised about the age of the buyers for this car. I am 43. With a few mods the Fiesta is a $25K car. Put 10% down and finance for 5 years, it still has a payment in the mid $300s. Not doable for a lot of young buyers. Now in 3-5 years, once the cars can be bought used for the mid to upper teens we'll see the age group of the owners shift.
I debated about responding to CNBRD's question about the dude between 66-75. So, here I am. I've been piloting high performance cars and bikes for over 50 years. Without taking up a lot space here with my many experiences building, driving/riding and racing in several types of sanctioned racing events (some NOT sanctioned!), I decided to order the Fiesta ST to keep the flame burning a little longer. The long wait between ordering the FiST and hopefully seeing it before year-end can be a little more "serious" for guy my age!
