QOTD: High School Superstar?

If you’re someone who enjoys thinking back to your high school days, you were either exceedingly popular at the time (jerk!) OR achieved absolutely nothing in later life. The two are not mutually exclusive. Four touchdowns in a single game at Polk High — that kind of thing.

That model was originally presumed to […] The post European Emission Regulations Killed the Ford Focus RS appeared first on The Truth About Cars.
