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.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)
