I honestly think that if Ford were to do a fraction of the new ST's coming out in an RS form, you'd have the makings of a modern day collectible. But not a "let's put it in a hermitically sealed bubble" one. A driver, a real car. Would it be priced just outside of 'normal'?? Yep, you bet. Wait a year or two...listen to the short comings of the ST, build the fixes into an RS along w/a few tweeks and let'em rip!
