Aquired car 1/99 and average 25,000
miles annually. By the end of '03 it
will have 200,000 on. ALL ORIGINAL
except air filter, belts and water
pump. Still has original plugs, wires,
sensors etc. Thought about replacing
them, but averaging 35 mpg (and 40.8 on
trips) I ask myself...WHY? This car
sees mostly highway miles, and
occassionally the local drag strip.
Just plain RELIABLE! Has pretty decent
power and is a blast to drive! I love
it! Cost of ownership doesn't get any
lower then this.
Forget the Focus, build 91-96 Escort
GT's!! (Cannot comment on the ZX2 as I
have no experience w/ them.)
