The Ford Focus ST is a better 10th high-school reunion car than a 20th reunion car.

    Is that the Hyatt Regency Newport Beach? That parking lot look's familiar from when we stayed there in '06.

    The Grand National would have been more time-machine worthy of the trip. But I sure hope you don't care what anyone thinks about the car you are driving by the time your 20th reunion rolls around.

    Had my 30th last weekend. I am generally hyper aware of what people drive. I frequently remember their cars but not their names.

It's also irresponsible parenting. Teens are inexperienced drivers, while at the same time believing they are invincible. That's an accident waiting to happen. Buying them a brand new car (with a powerful motor, no less) is just foolish. Who cares about image.

    @greenpony: at least its better than the kids at my high school whose parents bought them brand new Audi TTs, Corvettes, Caddy CTS-V, and Lexus LSs. (Why a high school guy would want an LS, even if his parents could afford it, is beyond me but there was o
