I owned aFord Escort Mk1 RS 2000 some years ago now, the car was white with blue decals, it was kitted out with minilites, 4 super oscars twin 40s and full competition exhaust. I swapped a capri for the car in Blackpool and had about 3 years of trouble free motoring! Until one day my gilfriend (now my wife) rolled the car and put it in a ditch! Luckily my workmate was a panel beater/spray painter so he fixed it up better than new I have long since sold the car but I have been looking for any... (read more)

My Ford Escort Mk I is a well built car. She has a large engine bay (there is a lot of unused space) which alows for a larger engine to be installed if required. Her body is very strong and the pannel beating is easier. There are no computerised parts and no fuel injection, so she can be harder to drive, (compared to now-a-days cars) but she will not give problems that cannot be fixed.
