    Superb car of its time brother had a white one and it went like the clappers handled well as it should being rally inspired.

    I still love these. A mate had an tuned orange RS2000 & another had a mk1 Mexico with tuned 2.1 Pinto engine. Great fun to drive :)

    Yeah Ford did some nice cult cars around that time RS2000, Mexico, RS1800, anyone remember the Harrier?
    You still see plenty of Mk2 escorts on the rally seen even now
    Would love any of the above as a toy, so much easier to work on than todays cars!!

    rear wheel drive fun.
    the 2.1 pinto was a real good engine (they all were infact Mexico,RS)
    wouldnt mind a X-Pack mk2 to blast about in today but sadly there arnt many left and the ones that are left are fetching big money

    Definately one for my `dream garage`.

    RS2000 (MK1 preferably), with 4x4 Cosworth engine and running gear putting out around 400bhp.

    Seen it years ago in a performance Ford mag sitting on its bump stops with OEM RS rims in a FORD green colour.

    Fantastic.
    Very cool.

    My first car was a Mk1 escort 1100 into which I transplated a MK2 cortina 1600GT engine and Capri running gear as the original non servod drum brakes were scary, but the thing I remember most about the car was the foot pump on the floor for the windscreen washers!!!........How times have changed.:laugh:
