Starter Classic: 1989 Ford Escort GT

The US version of the Ford Escort was not as well loved as the European version, which is a cult classic over on the other side of the world…but the US Escort was about as forgettable as a mild case of hand, foot and mouth disease. However, I can’t help but feel a pang of nostalgia in my gut when I gaze upon the plastic “GT” body kit on this next car. Or maybe I shouldn’t have eaten two week old leftover pizza for lunch. Find this 1989 Ford Escort GT offered for $4900 in San Mateo, CA via craigslist. Tip from Matt V.
