I’d just had gastric bypass surgery, husband left me and was jobless. The vehicle I’d been driving(husbands) was totaled and my mom helped me buy the Escort. What a great little car, still runs like a champion. My first, all on my own car was a Mustang. Still have the Escort, love it and it’s going to be my daughters first car. My Mustang is my baby, metalic candy apple red, he’s one of the best things to ever happen to my life. I love my Fords.
