well it looks like I'll be one of the few to keep at least one on the road haha alot of people always say and I qqoute "wow what a nice car mate. you don't see many of them about now do you !!" I will treat her well tlc tlc tlc lol
To put it into perspective.. as of March 2018 there were 37.9 million cars on the road... for example ST220 owners make up i think less than 0.01% of that total. Really are in a small (getting smaller) exclusive club here.
The trouble with the ST24 and the reason they are on the decline is because they didn't really make their mark like they could have done. This is just an opinion and feel free to disagree but they were just too similar to what the world already had. The Vectra GSI had the edge over the ST24, as did the Honda Accord, we also had competition from up and coming hot hatches so it didn't cut it, and in a way I'm glad it didn't because Ford realized, they picked up the pieces and gave us one of its all time greats; the ST200 and showed the world what it could do if it tried. (P.S I personally still love the ST24 because, well why wouldn't you.)
