...I eventually put an Ansa exhaust, MSW wheels, and some lowering springs on it. (Ate up the tie rod ends, though.)
My mom still had her 1983 WV GTI, and the Escort couldn't hold a candle to it. The Escort's rear suspension gave some weird toe changes through its suspension travel, which made hard cornering really spooky. It also pitched around on its suspension more than my mon's car. It was cheaper - all I could afford at the time, so I have no complaints. It was reliable. Sold it in 1990 and bought a VW Corrado.
