The ford models i have owned in the past were: Ford Cortina ( 2litre four cylinder). A 1970 Ford XY/XW 302 V8 sedan. Can not remember if it had the cleveland or windsor engine block. Anyway it was a 302 eight cylinder mated to a manual gearbox. There was a scoop on bonnet referred to as a shaker. Plus the twin exhaust.

Ford falcon EB sedan as a six cylinder. Then i traded in the EB for a Ford falcon EL sapphire. The falcon sapphire was a trade deal for my current Ford Escape. :)

The previous Fords I have owned included a 1971 Mustang, a 2002 Ford Escort ZX2, and the 2003 Ford Escape.

All were wonderful cars with good personalities.

My family has had a 1979 Mustang V6, a late 70's Pinto (I'm not sure of the actual model year) and a 1967 Mercury Cougar.

The 'Stang was a Black Coupe and really fun to drive but it was plagued with electrical problems. It was the car I learned to drive in. The Pinto replaced the Mustang and was actually a really good car. It was blue with white racing stripes on the side. It was the car in which I learned to drive a stick shift. I actually think it was more fun than the Mustang. The Cougar was my father's. He ordered it new when they first came out. I believe it was one of the first 1000 made. It's still in my garage and needs a lot (and I mean a lot) of work. Everyone in my family wants to fix it up but we either don't have the time, the skills or the money. Until then it sits... :(




I love the sequential directional indicators (A.K.A. the blinkers) on this thing:

The Ford Ka is a cracking car to drive, thinking of getting Wifey one.
Funny though, there was the Escort / Fiesta / Mondeo Si model, but never a Ka Si, wonder why???? ;) ;)
The Focus looks nice, was very tempted by the ST 220 a few years ago, in dark mettalic grey, but the wife preffered the Scooby Impreza, which is what we ended up with, until we traded it for the Maverick

I had a '99 Ford Explorer XLS before my Mariner. I liked it when I first got it but over time,it just felt too "big" for lil ole me and was a gas guzzler. And all the media hoopla about the rollovers didn't help my love affair w/it. In the end, we just had to go our separate ways. And then I met my Mariner and I haven't looked back. :)




Here are some pics of my Explorer with SNOW!!! (Yes, Squishy, I call that snow!!!) :D

My first car was a 1988 Taurus LX Wagon with the 3.8L V6. Definitely one of the best cars I've ever driven. Handled great, carried a ton, and with the 3.8 it accelerated like crazy. Best feature was the digital dash which is slowly making a come back with the 2010 Fusion :yes: I had a 1987 Volvo 240 after that and now I have the Escape so I'm all set :thumb:

I bought this when I was 15...was my first car. Paid $2200 for it after taxes and fees. I paid for it in cash. I have worked since I was 13 years old. LOVED that car...I would honestly buy one and drop the escape and drive it today lol
