    a bit pricey IMO. it is just an escort, afterall. i think 20k would be a better price range

    that much is what they go for?

    christ, it may be a nice model, i have seen great videos of those, but its still a fucking ford escort.

    not a chance i would pay anywhere near that much for that glorified econo box.

    "Just an escort", sorry wrong. You're comparing it to a USDM Escort which are piles of shit. This is a Euro turbo AWD monster that has competed and won in several WRC sports and other racing. Think of it as a WRX STi, 276 horses, 6 speed manuals, etc. IT IS NOT your average USDM Escort. It's a Cosworth.

    How much did you pay for your glorified 2.5rs... err.. STi, B?

    I thought you can get those for around 9-15k USD....in Canda? Though, I do not know how hard or how much it'll cost to bring it down here, but I'm sure it's possible(as I know a few guys who's cars were originally sold in Canada).

    If I am going to spend any coin on an automobile, it must make my heart pitter patter. At least a little bit.

    And escorts do not do that for me. Not even a little bit. I don't care what they have inside or what they can do. Bland.

    that was also brand new.

    today, its worth 15 probably.... hell, theres an evo on here for 12k in the for sale section. 18-20 because of the import factor is about all i'd say is reasonable.

    you guys are fucking morons. it is in no shape or form related to the US made Ford Escort. its a completely different car. since its a Cosworth, not much of it is Ford except the body and interior. everything else on the car is Cosworth...the engine, transmission, suspension, etc. the Cosworth Escort is perhaps one of THE greatest rally cars ever made. the US made Ford Escort is the retarded half cousin twice removed that fell down the ugly tree and hit every branch on the way down. anyways, heres a little reading to do on it:
