for months now ive been trying to convince my girl to get a gt, or any escort for that matter. finally she broke down and said if i can find her the color she wants and all the options, same ones as i have, she'll get one.


I have a 95 Caymen green Scort, looks almost new ith 50k on it. bought it this past march. she wants the purple scort gt they got out there, but with the sunroof, which i got, and an automatic. I have the 5 speed. Didnt know really how hard it was looking for one. I had an 95 lx couple years back, sold it after buying my chevy. I love my gt and would like to see her get one. anyway, any you guys/gals seen this purple scort gt color floating around, or is it rare?

My next door neighbor has one in this color for sale for $2 grand. However, I most assuredly have dibs on it and will be repainting it black.

You're looking for the Iris edition. And it's even more rare than the Caymen green. Odds are you won't be able to find one. But good luck anyways.

this purple one is rare, theres one sitting at my local mechanic shop, it looks like a purple 96 (due to the rims) and its been sitting there forever, im gonna ask him what the deal is with it today, its an automatic, and in pretty nice shape.

All I have to say is that beggars can't be choosers...

With tastes that picky, I'd be looking to buy a new car. And yes, they're very rare. And I'd teach her to drive stick. What kind of taste do you have in women anyways?! ;-)

yeah, i remember seeing not one, but two purple ones a few months ago that never sold within 50 miles from where i live (elyria, ohio). both were purple, had sunroofs, but i think they were both stick and had some miles on them. im sure they havent sold yet at all.

do a search on autotrader man.

I cant find any GT's around here. There are two other GT's here ,
one is green and the light blue color. They also look like crap.

If I could find a GT like mine with miles not to much over 100,000
or lower, Id buy one in a minute no matter what color is was.

sirgan,

I live in Akron, Ohio.

When I was looking for a nice Cayman GT, I searched high and low. After a search of over a year and a half, i gave up. I can't tell you how many black, white, red, blue, and other colors I seen. never a green one worth a crap.

I ended up getting a 1996 GT Toreador Red. I did not want that color, but the price was right and it matches my Sport Trac. it looks really nice when I tow the EGT on my trailer with the tow vehicle matching the Escort.

Just a stupid question, but did they ever even make an automatic GT??? After all of my test drives and looking around, I have yet to come across one that's not standard!

Why would they do that? LOL! What is the use of an auto in a "sports" car!!! If you want a sports car, learn to drive it like a sports car!!!!! but this has got off topic, this is my last comment on this post! but if you want, I can keep my eye open for an escort matching that description here, only problem is I'm not in the US

well, if they make a decked-out subaru wrx sti with an auto, anything's possible.

remember, not everyone knows how and is willing to learn how to drive stick.

They don't... and they won't.

You can, on the other than, buy some pretty hot Porsches and Corvettes w/ automatics.. but not the GT2 and not the Z06.

Lets not forget, there are people who are physically not able to drive a manual.. yet still want to drive a sports car. Being snobbish about driving manuals can be rude to people who are already having a tough time dealing with a disability.

So, until I lose the use of one of my legs, I'll take my cars w/ manuals, please.
