The fifth generation Ford Escort (mark V for all you forum geeks) is my favorite. It was build from 1990 to 1997 (technically until 2004 but this revised model is dubbed mark 6 by Ford). It also came along with a lineup of models where I feel Ford got everything right. The design was well balanced, it had a corporate identity without looking the same. You could tell a Ford Transit back then from a mile away. The Scorpio looked modern and clean and not like a punched blob fish (compare the Scorpio in case you need something to scare your kids). All was good until Ford Europe decided ruin things with weird cosmetics. I’m still upset about that, and because of that you’ll only find pre-facelift Mk5s here.
