    New to the forum, been lurking for a bit though. I don't have an escort yet but I have been looking for a first gen wagon for some time now. Several have slipped through my fingers.

    Glad to be here!

    Hi, good luck on the hunt!
    Where are you located? If in the "Rust Belt", your search will be very difficult.

    Yep, rust belt. About an hour south of Chicago. There have been a few that were nearly rust free, but I either didn't have their asking price, or it sold before I was able to scrounge up the money.

    There have been others, but I'm picky with rust, so I had to pass

    Finally found myself a wagon! It is an Oxford White 1988 GL model. AC, Power Steering, Power Mirrors, etc. Oh and its a 5-speed manual, so I'm pretty pumped to start working on it.

    Undercarriage is very clean underneath, but there is some rust on some of the body panels. The paint is very oxidized so I might try to patch the rust and paint the car next year. I do like the Oxford white so I may keep it that color.
