So it's sort of like a European version of the E30! Except 10 years earlier. With some really dodgy badge engineering and terrible consumer models, if we're honest, though obviously the rally versions kicked ass.
Not really like a European E30, then, if we needed another European E30, anyway.
I do wish we could find the good MkI and MkII Escorts here though, really cool cars. Nice video.
Nothing like E30....more like a 2002. And considering how much they costed then and how easy they were to modify there was nothing dodgy about them.
I know a few guys in Ireland that run them now with Cossie NA engines and sequential gearbox and give the WRC guys a real run for their money......not bad for such an old car i think!
It was even Colin Mcraes fav. car:
I love them and i will one day get a Mexico like this one with either a Cossie or Zetec NA!!!!!
