My Geo Storm GSi back in '93 ran a 16.2 in showroom trim but a little weight savings and better driving got me to a 15.99;it felt slow back then but once I bought a turbo AWD Eclipse and threw only a few hundred in it and was running with Vettes my perspective of speed changed. I miss having a low 12 second 4 banger that was very unassuming back in the day.

All that said I still think the Focus is a fun zippy car to drive especially with the 5 speed and will be getting some numbers this spring when the strip opens.
