These are getting pretty rare. One of the more common OPCs, but there are definitely less around than there were a few years ago. Likin' the stripes/graphics on the side, the foglights, and the big black grill. Not likin' the hubcaps. When will peope learn that bare steel is better than this plastic junk?
Anyone else think the profile looks kinda like a early 90s Explorer? If you squint? Maybe?

I can't remember the last time I saw one of these in any body style here in Indiana, where it snows and cars rust away.

These 1st gen Escorts were the beater cars for high school kids only a few years after they came out. And they weren't that well made to start with. It's amazing any survived. They are virtually extinct in the Northeast.

Loving the 80's shade of tan and those stripes. those Walmart hubcaps however, blargh!
Very 1st gen Explorer-ish side profile, good catch Seattle.

I always laugh at how long the American companies, especially GM, advertised EFI on their vehicles long after there were no carbs anymore

There were at least 4 of these at my high school circa 1997
