    That was kinda harsh, '22. Sure he's got taste...might not be very good taste, but he's got taste nonetheless. :D

    Escort ZX2, basically an escort coupe that survived the death of the original escort by 3 or four years. I believe it is dead now.

    Ford was selling these super cheap for a while after the Focus came out.

    Yeah, its a 2001 ZX2. Ford started production of the Escort ZX2 in 1998, dropped the escort label in 2001 (the regular escorts died in 2000) and now it is the ZX2. 2003 was the last year of production for the ZX2. Nice sporty little car with the ever popular 2.0 zetec motor. And I think it is a very nice little car with lots of taste compared to civics, caveliers and neons...which is what I see all day on campus :rolleyes:

    Yea, I wouldn't exactly call a Ford Escort or what ever that is sexy. I would say it is almost as sexy as a minivan. :)

    American cars suck! :) ;)

    (no offense to anyone here)

    So you wash and wax it then drive it on to a gravel/dirt lot?!?!

    Is this your first car? And with those pics, I'm actually surprised no one has said anything that's would get reported..... ;)

    Hey, what's the matter with the pics? And who is so anal that they won't drive a car on dirt? I live in maine, its going to happen. And no, its my 3rd vehicle actually. I just really like it. For those of you that don't, I don't care. I think that for a cheap econo-box it really sets the standards quite high. 0-60 in 8 seconds, 33mpg and I love the way it looks. Show me a bone stock sephia that will do 0-60 in 8 seconds.

    I have to say I really like jeeps, that is the older ones. I hate the liberty and the grand cherokee. They are trying to modernize the old style of jeeps but it is not working.

    I saw the new Commander at a fair. Its ok, a little ugly on the outside, poorly designed rear seating, but I would rate it a 8 out of 10 in American SUVs.

    Thats Right! Land Rovers are the best and you know it.

    I like the Liberty, its a cross between the wrangler and the cherokee. Great small SUV. Plus anything that has "Trail Rated" stamped on the side is alright with me.

    Don't take it personally joecool85. If the people here didn't like you they would be posting in your thread. I think the care looks very nice, good job with the wash and wax. The most important thing is that you love and enjoy the car. ;)

    I have to agree with you on that one.

    I can't think of a single American or Japanese car I'd like to have.

    The Europeans on the other hand really know how to make great automobiles. :D

    I really have to wonder about a country that turns a Holden Monaro into a Pontiac GTO...



    By choice! :eek: :(

    The color is kind of ugly. But who am I to judge? My white Taurus looks like a rolling refrigerator. Although my previous car ('93 Villager, also white) looked even more like a rolling refigerator. :p It figures I'd buy 2 cars in a row (for myself-not my wife) that had the same color inside AND outside. Doh!!

    Just kidding. The car looks nice. :)

    I liked the look of the boxy Cherokee a lot, too, personally...and the Wrangler is definitely very classic. :)
