It Is A True Legend — it doesent have enough power or the best handiling its not a 2 door the interior isent very nice thats about it but it is fast for an old car it goes sideways its a pleasure to drive it looks nice nothing wrong with it the escorts are over priced for wat they r

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

1600 Sport — This was a bit of a DIY dream of mine. I bought it already having undergone a stage 2 conversion with Richie Jute wild cams, free flow exhaust system, and wide profile tyres on Smith Wheels mags. It drove like a donkey - strong with no top end, but you could rev that engine all day long. The torque on the car was incredible.

Pros: Engine was strong as a donkey

Cons: Ride was not comfortable.

Pretty Appalling But It Was Cheap — Alternator blew and took the voltage regulator with it in middle of rural france, me and my bro were back on the road in a few hours thanks to the amazing chance of there being a ford dealer in the next village, so plentiful dealers and parts...in 1983 anyway!

Pros: cheap as anything

Cons: ugly, unreliable, smelly, rattly, not a patch on Japanese of same era

My First 50 Squid Car — How is it when you first get your car no matter what it is you still feel cool! When i got on the road these cars were pretty common for the boy racer,and they were easy to work on and you could get parts easy at the scrappy pretty much where i lived most of the time.They were fun to drive for the first owned car and gave you a bit of street cred.Mind you it didnt last long for me after cooking the engine and managing to sell the car on for more running on three pistons with a top speed of 60mph.With that the engines were pretty strong taking a lot of abuse and i loved the rear wheel drive on corners.Canary yellow was a bit strong though giving you the flying bannana look.Overall it was a good fun car for a first car but was soon transformed after driving a Vw golf Gti.

Pros: Cheap parts,strong body work,remember sliding directly into a chevron sign and taking out the grill and cross member chasing a Toyota Mr2 mk1 and it still kept on going.

Cons: Petrol guzzler,handling wasnt that good

Great First Car! — Mine was actually a 4 door 1300GL with a full Webasto sunroof (which sadly had previously been masticked down). Being an old Ford, obviously rust was a problem. Best point - started first time after standing in snow for 2 weeks! Worst point - weeds growing in the passenger foot well!

Pros: Size and reliability

Cons: Rust!
