About having the goods... what I mean is that MOST people on the street, don´t look at a 4 door Escort sedan as being very sporty. And so wouldn´t give this car a second look as far as performance goes. At least in my area, it´s so hard to find an LX-E or an LTS - both of which feature the 1.8 GT engine and suspension which really kicks. Most people would assume this 4 door has got the 1.9. In a way, it´s the ultimate sleeper.
