I have a 1988 Ford Escort (mfd. in Nov 1987) GT 2dr hatchback, 5 spd, power mirrors, cruise control, tilt steering wheel, A/C, new engine (1.9 EFI HO), 130K mi. The car was recently damaged on the driver side door, requiring body work, but otherwise the car is in excellent condition. I can junk the car and get nothing or spend $2,000 to restore it. In five years the car will be 20 years old, so would restoring it be a good investment?
