Response to Re: Bring back bumpers!

 

I owned a 1982 Escort and remember it well -- the "World Car", they called it. I think the bumpers were at least adequate. The thing that stands out to me, looking back, is that the car didn't like starting in cold weather (I think the smaller Fords from that era all shared that characteristic). I would have to crank a few times to get it to start in cold weather 9say, 10-20 degrees F), and in really cold weather (0 and below), it might not start at all. Then, when it started, the idle was very shaky until a couple of minutes passed and the oil was circvlating good. Otherise, I liked the car. I would just have advised anyone to garage it during the winter months so that it would start OK.
