Default Ford Focus ST (5 door) already in the US?

We saw this guy out driving this afternoon. Only had time to get a couple of pics, but will carry my camera this week and see if I can get some more. It was a nice looking car. Seemed to be the same as the one on sale in Europe.

Yea, Mexico has had the better, newer, more attractive and better built (Euro) Focus for years now.

1) Buy used Focus in States.
2) Go to MX & buy MX Focus.
3) Swap VINs & burn US Focus.
4) ???
5) Profit.

A certain race car driver did that with a Mitsubishi EVO, long before they were available in the U.S. He swapped VINS with with a Lancer. (allegedly)



That Focus has promising looks.

I was going to say that looks a little like a newer intersection on US6 just south of Golden.

Then again the snow's too low and the mountain too close. Where is the location? Silverthorne maybe?

How's the outlet mall there doing? For that matter is 70 still a cluster****? I couldn't believe it when I started seeing traffic jams on it a few years ago.
