    i aint much for Ford Festivas, but this one is pretty badass:

    http://www.fordshowoff.com/profile.php?id=5169

    my only complaint is that it could use bigger wheels. other than that, its the best looking Festiva i have ever seen...and it has a Mazda GTX motor swap done to it.

    Only problem is the 323 GTX is a weak engine power wise, even though it is a factory boosted engine. I personally would have put a jdm BPT in it. 180 horses out of the box, a boost controller can bring boost up to about 14-15 psi on stock internals.

    Hasn't that one been in SCC before? I'm pretty sure that I've seen it in a magazine in a reader's ride section.

    A stock looking Festiva with a tweaked BPT engine could be a helluva sleeper B)

    It actually doesn't look that bad. Put something bigger than 13's or whatever is on it on there, and I'd rock it.

    Those cars are so light. I had a carbed one before i bought my civic. You could thrash it all day long and not worry about killing yourself. Fun car. I could only imagine how much more fun it would be with a real engine. 1750 lbs. and 58 hp stock (for 1988)

    Even though the car is light and maybe fast, it is still ugly. I know we drive hondas and they are not considered a true "sports car" but at least hondas look good when they are fixed up right. Just my 2 cents. Everybody has their style.

    and he's got 15's on it...
    HUGE upgrade from the stock 12's... lol

    he's got some balls to build and BE PROUD of his festiva...

    Are you sure? I don't think Kia even existed when Ford was selling the Festiva/323.

    Thats what I was thinking myself.

    I do know that the 91-96 Escort is a rebadged Mazda Protege. the GT models have a Mazda strut/spring suspension, the BPZE engine and the G25m/G5m transmission.
