Hello all. I am new here and native from Minneapolis, Minnesota. I want to find a good 81 or 82 Escort. I prefer the 1982 mid blue with white pin stripe, or the dark red/maroon. But any color would be nice. No electric Escorts. Tradition gas engine cars only please. I think a must have are the high one piece front bucket seats. I always loved the look of those, but was never a fan of the adjustable head rest. That was uncomfortable, and to me, just looked bad. I owned two Escorts. A 1981 turquoise blue wagon, and a 1981/82 two tone cream and darker metallic brown 2 door hatchback. I will leave with one theory I have though. I never thought these cars were terrible, but they had engine problems. I think it may be the wrong type of gas put in them. I use mid grade unleaded in my cars and have never had problems. Low grade is best for yard equipment like lawn mowers, but people get it because it's cheap. You do get what you pay for. Premium fuel is clean, but too clean for a daily driver, like an Escort. Premium gas is high performance fuel , meant for high performance cars, like Chevy Corvettes, Camaros, or Ford Mustangs. Just a thought, but I would really appreciate the help in finding and buying an early 81 or 82 Escort. I would consider an 83, but no newer. Thank you.
