If Chad wants to discourage this kind of thread, that's fine.

Spotted a black ST at 11:20 near the Papa Gino's/Ocean State Job lot parking lot on Rt 38 in Tewksbury today (sunday). Looked good moving, tough to keep my eyes on the road. Not sure if it had stock wheels, looked more like straight spokes like the titanium.

Nothing wrong with a Spotted thread at all.

I typically see a Silver Focus SE with a Saturn Redline symbol next to the SE and it has some wide 10+ spoke gunmetal rims. Not an ST, but still interesting.

I spotted a 2013 Silver Focus ST2 with moonroof and navigation yesterday afternoon in Berlin CT.

Did I mention I was behind the wheel taking a test drive at the time and that this was faST's original order that he had to ditch before moving to California?!

Sweet ride! Love the engine sound that's piped into the cabin. Defintely a firm suspension but not overly firm. It is more firm than my non sport package 2009 BMW 335xi.

I'm holding out for the ST3, but for anyone interested in a loaded silver ST2, Morande Ford in Berlin, CT has one for sale. They take x-plan but after my test drive, it was clear that if I wanted to buy that car, they would offer me a price under x-plan.

Yup, that was mine! I'm glad they're letting people drive it. I wouldn't be surprised if they went below X-plan, their pricing was the best in the area.

Spotted a TS ST2 in Mystic CT. I know you weren't on FSTN because I spoke to you. Sorry if I seemed creepy...just wanted to say hi.

So far my ST is feeling lonely - have not spotted another ST on the road yet. In fact my ST was the first one I even laid eyes on. I travel between Franklin and Acton MA on 495 for my commute. I keep looking but so far no other ST's. So if you travel on 495 and see a TB ST2 - that's me.

Spotted in Arlington, MA! Performance blue with CT plates!

Ok, which one of you guys came to my neighborhood to taunt me before my ST arrives? :)

Finally - I spotted another ST (other than my own I mean....) coming off 495 and driving into Franklin MA

Guess what? - Tuxedo Black just like mine!

It had PA plates - I think the driver thought I was crazy. I was trying to get him to pull over & chat - nothing doing.

Woah man! What a beautiful piece of artwork! :thumb:

That was me visiting some friends up in Arlington for the weekend. You should have rang the door bell!

Next time I'm around I'll let you know.

Spotted a PB ST (unsure trim) in NH, not sure plates though they looked like NH ones. Had just got off 93 in Bethlehem and he was getting onto the NB ramp. We both waved and had a surprised look, not too many ST's in northern NH! Curious to see if the owner frequents the boards!

Lol, people in the northeast may be more known for road rage than to pull over for a nice chat! I may have a white ST3 on order to contrast your black one Jim, so you may have company in the Franklin area sometime late winter. The order is not confirmed yet as the dealer is out of allocations, but they feel confident that the extra retail order with a signed P&S will get Ford to build and ship it to me. Hoping to hear in the next week or two. I really want to work with this specific dealer as their trade in value was good.

I am keeping my fingers crossed that Ford will confirm your order. It'll be nice to have another ST in the area. I can guarantee that this car will put a smile on your face each and every time you drive it. Best bang for the buck I have every gotten for my money. Just so amazingly versatile. Drive her hard and she is a beast - doing the daily commute and she is smooth and composed. It's like you are getting two cars in one. Good luck!

Thanks Jim! I find myself having to keep very busy to avoid calling the dealer daily--any update yet?? I'm sure others who ordered their STs can relate. I can settle down for a bit once I hear the order is approved and will be built. Until then, it will be a challenge.

finally picked up my TB ST2 a couple days ago, cruising around the merrimack valley (or whatever that odd region between Lowell and Woburn is). Keeping a low profile until I can get my snow tires tomorrow...

That was me! The honey BBQ wrap was cheap, fast and tasty. :LOL:

Were you in your ST? I'll be bummed if I actually failed to spot one. I have been keeping my eyes glued, but I haven't seen another on the road since dem778's was parked in my neighborhood.

Awww damn. That'll teach me to watch where I'm going! :LOL:

I work in Woburn as well, so you'll probably see me around there plenty. Usually ordering bad food.
