I'm looking for a first gen escort in good shape that can be daily driven it need be. I don't mind if the car needs a little TLC so long as its not anything major or a rust bucket. Some dings, dents, old tires or a hose or two needing replaced is fine. I don't want a rust bucket or a car that need a new tarns/motor.
A 3 door hatch would be preferred, I don't really want a GT or a wagon. I don't want to drive to far to get the car, so somewhere in the Ohio valley or Columbus area would be preferred. Basically looking for a summer daily driver.
NO AUTO's, 4/5 speeds only.

I'm sure I'll be looking for a long time. I don't mind the wait. I don't need the car today.
