Raced an ST170... not far behind!!!
Pulled past a servo yesterday in the early evening, saw an ST170 pulling out of the drive and for all the criticism they get, that thing lookd absolutely bloody awesome. He pulls up next to me, bloke in his 30's I'm guessing, didn't look too interested in the world (must have been a dealer) and I didn't receive the old Focus nod and smile, specially from him...
Methinks this would be a great chance to show him my Zetec won't take it's $10k inferior price tag lying down, so I give the ol Zee a thrashing and whaddya know, the little fat bastard ST170 just can't seem to shake me!! It was only up the steep hill that he pulled away from me ever so slightly... but there wasn't much in it!! Mind you when I pulled up at the next lights and popped the window down a little to hear the glorious tune of that exhaust... the smile returned even bigger. Take one for a test drive one day and you'll see what I mean, that car has an extremely sexy tune to it - stock. But it gave me the modding bug SO badly that I knew the next time I took on an ST170 seriously it'd be more than a little humbled.
