I have been incredibly interested in the Focus ST for quite some time, albeit I have never actually driven a Focus nor have I ever wanted one. That is, until the new(er) Focus came out and I test drove one. Now I'm hooked on the ST and am currently trying to gather quotes from multiple dealers.
Ha! That is really funny. I almost bought a Fiesta about a year ago, but decided to wait until this ST came out. I used to drive an '06 Lancer Ralliart; it was an awesome car. I miss it sometimes, but I don't miss the insurance costs. I'm driving a Cobalt right now, and I can't wait to get rid of it.
