A few years ago, I traveled with a group of friends to New York City to visit a buddy who had moved out for his birthday. My friend and I were trying to figure out what to do while we were there. We struck gold: Vin Diesel, of “Fast and Furious” and Rihanna cover song fame, would read children’s books to adults at a comedy club in the city. Better yet, tickets were only $5 apiece.
A frantic email and scramble to purchase tickets proved soon afterward that it was, indeed, too good to be true. Instead of Dominic Toretto reading us the “Goodnight Moon,” we got a guy in a bald cap with fake muscle sleeves reading a book he wrote as Vin Diesel’s character in those movies — fool’s gold, as it turned out.

I felt a similar level of disappointment today with Ford’s news that it would bring back for the 2019 model the Fiesta ST … Line. The Fiesta ST-Line is, in essence, a Fiesta ST in a bald cap with fake muscles.
The Fiesta ST has a special place in my heart and the hearts of Cars.com staff. Last summer, I detailed our picks for the most fun-to-drive cars that cost less than $25,000, and the ST was the most submitted car in the entire piece: Four other editors emailed me to ensure its inclusion.
