Ford Orion — Was fun at the time, not a bad quick car for a young lad. But by todays standards wouldnt touch one again!! Much better out there now even cars made by ford!!! However back then it was all happy days!!

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

Dependable Work Horse... — Bought this Orion Ghia when I needed reliable daily transport for the daily commute. Very comfortable cruiser - with all the toys - including a heated front windscreen - a must for those icy mornings! Eventually traded this one in for my Fiat.

Most Reliable Car I've Ever Had. — Nothing ever went wrong with this car. I only got rid of because someone chose to rearange the looks of it by driving into it.
