“This is a car touched by genius”.

That’s how the writers at Top Gear describe the 2013 Ford Focus ST as they drove it on back country roads across the United States. That’s right, no freeways, no highways, no city centers. Just scenic views (and sometimes nothingness) the whole way from West Coast to East Coast. This is the exact trip I want to make sometime this year. I know I don’t have this version of the car, but maybe I can recreate some of that experience in my own Focus.
