I picked up my little white 1/87 Escort last weekend. Now, if they could just make the 1989 Escort GT. I bought one brand new back in late 1988, and I don't care what those folks say, I enjoyed that little car. It was cheap, comfortable, had some pep, and it was the whitest white I had ever seen. I sold it to my sister in law, and she drove it for many years without a problem.
Heck! I even had a 1986 Escort wagon, with a diesel! Now that was a cruisin' vessel!
