Tearing up the grass at Roush

I moved to Michigan. Went to a small show at Roush yesterday....almost couldn't park next to the best car there



Tried to get it up gently the first time, got stuck, had to be pushed off. Then gave zero s and brute forced it up. Felt the floor pan ripple under my feet as I went up.

I want an ST so bad.

Yours is the best car there! Park where you want. That ST does look great, but you can't even compare the two.

agreed!! i am seriously re-considering the awesomeness of the new st:( earlier in the week, i had a white one pass me on the way home from work. so me being me i had to try to pass him back. i almost did but i ran out of passable road (bumper-to-bumper traffic!) so the reason i say this is a second gen with an exhaust and cai and no tune kept up! i have been burned many times by svt foci (more times than i can count!) so remember just because the st is newer, your car is still way better in the appearance and performance dept.!!!

Something about the SVT front bumper being an inch of the ground is just gorgeous I love it!

It was great to meet you guys last night too!



But to the people saying the ST is overrated, or my SVT is better....no way in hell. the ST BLOWS an SVT out of the water in every way. There is no comparison whatsoever. Anybody who thinks an ST is equal to an SVT needs to go test drive one or get a ride in one. I can guarantee that you will feel differently afterward.
