Hopefully I'll have lots of answers for you guys after that.
Lucky! Hopefully You won't have to sign an NDA, and you'll be able to tell us something. I'm dying to hear more.

Welp the event I was supposed to go to has been postponed. I was supposed to go to Ford HQ next Monday, meet with the ST team, watch and ST run on a chassis dyno, then have a lunch Q and A with Jost Capito, before going to some 3D environment thing to see the ST some more.

Hopefully they reschedule it and I will be able to attend the next one...

Sorry to hear of the postponement, that is an awesome invite! I hope it works out for you! I am jealous as hell.

But in the meantime, postponing the event give you time to order these:

Just practice your "nonchalant" look in the mirror for a while before you go. Act cool, they will never know!

I was invited as well through another forum. Unfortunately it's a bit too far for me to go. But it's cool as hell that they're even having it at all...

See if they will give you MPG estimates. They've been testing long enough to have an idea.

Do you see the postponement of this "glimpse event" as perhaps indicating that the roll out may be delayed. I have a 2006 Ford that is DOA and I'd be ready to buy an ST the day they come out ...... If it's really October. If not, I'll get something to tide me over. This is exciting that they are bringing the European car to the USA.

They might be taking orders in October, but it won't be released until next year. Next March or April probably.
