Good car for $1200 in 1999

1990 Ford Escort GT 2dr Hatchback


For the size of the engine the car did well in performance. I added intake and exhaust and noticed a slight difference. Lowering the car also enhanced handling making it fun, as well as taking it drifting and off-roading. The car has been in three accidents (all hit and runs) and has almost nothing to show for it, durability is high on this plastic-bumpered car. Even sold for $1000 five years later in 2004 with 150K miles on it. Bought it for $1200 with 80K miles and only had to do routine maintenance.

Best Features

Low cost, durability, and good gas mileage.

Worst Features

Front windshield leaked, even after having the window replaced.
