Wish my buddy could find something like this. He had to retire his classic 96 Escort wagon due to transmission problems and it's been dead end search after dead end search finding him a new ride. Been looking at Gran'pa Buicks and Mercurys now.

The stock suspension on this car sucked. I think it was a junk aftermarket oe replacement. This eibach kit really makes it ride like a hatchback. Got rid of the 4x4 gap and these tires filled it in even more. It's a lot more enjoyable to drive.

If it's a stick he can't drive it. He needs an ol' man car.
