Maybe I am missing the point about 85 MPH. In LA, it is not an uncommon speed for the freeway.
Yes there is...you're ungrateful. Seriously? I saw this picture on a different board and thought to bring it over here and you have the audacity to b!tch at me about how it's "not one of the better pictures of the ST that I've seen."

Yes, 85MPH is the highway speed, but have you ever tried to take a clear picture while driving at 85 MPH?

I think you two are just at a misunderstanding, neither of you should be getting offended by the others comments. its just a disagreement, leave it at that.

I like the picture and think its cool to see it out on the roads; kabigon doesnt, which is cool too.

The point isn't about the speed, or about getting a great photo of the car.
He OP was just excited that the car was seen in the open. And so am I!
I think it's awesome. Blurry photo aside, the cars are out there and being driven :)
They're getting closer! Now if only someone can find one with a FOR SALE sign on it with a price ;)

Sorry, I didn't mean to offend you.
Also, I can appreciate the picture of the ST "in real life".

When I said "not one of the better pictures", I meant it only in terms of being able to judge it's appearance (i.e. it looks great, it looks like crap, etc.).

Love the pic. Glad to see they're testing it on the roads. Hopefully it's not far from production.

Taking bets on whether or not Ford will make any Focus ST announcements during the NY auto show.
I'd put money on "no". Any takers?

I'd be a lucky monkey on an arc before that happens.

Seems like the refreshed Impala is going to steal most of the spotlight this year.

I was just talking to a friend about how it needs a more muscular redesign.

Every auto show that comes and passes I hope Ford finally gives us something. A configurator? Pricing estimates? A damn release date? Anything!
Instead, Ford sets up a booth, says "look everyone, it's shiny!" they even stopped using it as their profile pic on Facebook.
I'm starting to think the next announcement will be "lol April fools". Of course, days later than April Fools, since Ford has been terrible with deadlines. Ha.
