You're both right, anyone who drives anything less than an ST is not worth acknowledging.

Part of the problem is how you approach the situation. If you come up on me all hardcore ricer-like, you won't get anything close to the response you want. If you pull up like a normal person and wave or give thumbs up or something, then yeah you'll get acknowledged.

As far as those other STs you've seen, Rownan, not everyone who is buying them is into cars. It is possible for an IJAC to buy one and wonder why someone is fanatically waving at them in another Focus.

Not sure what you mean, I casually passed you one time on I-75 and gave a thumbs up (In my SVT when you had the burgundy ZX3, and I got nothing.) Maybe you were in a piss poor mood that day?


Beyond that, however, what color is your ST? I'll keep my eyes peeled!

Idk, usually I at least wave or something if someone else waves or gives thumbs. My bad I guess?

My ST is black and has a loud exhaust on it, you'd know its me. And I still have the ZX3, going to daily it to keep the ST nice.

Loll no harm no foul. You literally looked like you had the worst day of your entire life. I'll keep my eyes peeled for your ST.

Even though I brutally murdered the post about seeing his ST! It is one fine specimen.
