Mk 1 Escort 1300xl — I don't like the holes in the floor. Everything else is amazing... Current spec is 2.0 pinto, type 9 gearbox, 2.8 capri struts, wilwood 4 pots up front, standard rears. Lowered 2" (until I can afford coilovers) on alloy blocks. 6x13 Minilite style wheels with 185/60/13 tyres. Probably does 20-25 mpg. It's the most fun car I've owned.

Escort Zx2 (lead Footer) By Austin

This car handles nimbly, probably due to the light weight, but the stock tires don't have very much grip and the suspension is soft (when stock). The car is fun to drive on the whole though, especial... Read More
