Thumbs up Escort!

Its simple. You shouldnt Buy a gemini.
You should by a MkII Escort. You could get a reasonably tidy one for about 2,500... and their one hell of a great car!

Re: buying 1st car

I'll agree with threefiftyone8, you should be able to get a decent Mk II Escort for $2500 with the 'Pinto' 2L OHC engine and a 4 speed manual transmission. And as long as you're not looking for a perfect RS2000, then you might even get some change out of your $2500!

And he's right, they are one hell of a great car!

So, in conclusion, BUY THE ESCORT! :)
