My 13 year old Escort Wagon finally gave up. I considered a Toyota, just not very exciting. I finally settled on a 2009 Mustang and love it. I had a Thunderbird in 1960, with the Lincoln engine. That T-Bird would pass anything but a gas station. Gas was about 39 cents a gallon. The new Fords are so much better. Straight highway driving i can get 27 at 80 miles an hour. I love it, best thing about the new cars is no carb. I had to get used to all the electronics, my manual was used a lot in the beginning. My new Mustang is smarter then me.
