Hello everybody! Well I couldn’t stand not owning an ST so i went out and bought my second one yesterday. I have a list a mile long and going to start ordering in about an hr. First one was a new 20 this one new 22. Hard to believe but the fit and finish is better on the 22. Can’t wait to get started! 3C096C66-4661-43DB-B877-C15EF09DC652.jpeg

Totally agree. Black is one of the nicest looking colors on any car when kept clean. On the ST, Black does look sweet. Welcome back and looking forward to seeing what you have planned this time around.

Welcome to the forum. Seeing the ST in Agate Black makes me miss my 2014 Tuxedo Black Sport and almost makes me wish I’d ordered that color instead of the Atlas Blue that I have. :)

Thanks and understand It’s not for everybody. I spent plenty of time out on the dealer‘s lot looking at Atlas Blue, Rapid Red and Agate Black vehicles. All good choices but remembered how often my black 2014 had been confused by people as being the Police, ruled out the black and red (Fire Dept) options. Turns out that it doesn’t matter what color Explorer you drive, they all get treated like you’re the Police.

Enjoy your beautiful ST. It just needs some black lug nuts to compete the look. :)

Congrats, again? Lol

Black is definitely the sharpest color on earth for a vehicle, and without a doubt the most intensely difficult to keep clean. The perfect paradox if I ever saw one!
My SHO and Stinger GT were black, and I was washing them 3-4 times a week.:cool:

Also, LEO's use that color in my area so I made sure to avoid it. Don't need angry lawbreakers venting their rage on me.:oops:

It's not the one's moving over I'd be worried about, it's the armed escaped convicts that might come at 'ya that concern me!;)

Thanks! Did some of the work myself. Farmed out springs and intercooler. Hell to get old. Been spending a lot of time with my cardiologist lately. We did everything ourselves on our 2020. Amazing what happens in a couple of yrs. Enjoy yourselves while you can And never stop enjoying performance oriented anything, Cars, Boats, Bikes and the list goes on! Lol
