My dealer has a bunch of manuals too -- all sedans though, in the SE trim. I have oddly enough not seen a single hatchback model on his lot.

You'll like the car.

Hey Poon, good to find another Buckeye!

I see you have quite a group of cars there including Mk1 Fiesta. My dad bought one new in 78, it's what I learned to drive stick on. Great car, beat the snot out of it and it just kept running until the rust worms ate it.

I had an Escort GT same year as yours too. Another good car ran great for 215,000 miles until it got so rusty I had to search for places to lift it with the floor jack.

Thanks for the warm welcome all!

That Festiva must be a blast. Sounds like son of "shogun" if you remember that project car.
