Say hello to my little eggplant! :)
These cars are phenomenal gas savers!
I stripped 100 pounds from car, improved fuel economy 7% to 33city/42
37-38mpg combined at every fillup
5 speed manual

All 4 tires have over 85% tread!

The car is quiet, no odd noises that many used cars have.

The silver tube in the video is an added air intake, doubling the air going
into the engine improving fuel economy!
1994 Ford Aspire Tribute Video
I finally sold my 1994 Ford Aspire. I bought this car in 2007 when gas hit
the $4.00 mark in New Hampshire. I drove it all through graduate school
while I was self-employed and it saved my butt with its awesome fuel
economy. I never once felt like falling asleep when I drove this car. It
only made 63 horsepower but it was an
enjoyable ride. I sold it to my friend, who will hopefully take care of it
for the next few years.
Rallying a Ford Aspire
Accidentally went off-roading in a 1996 Ford Aspire 5 door. I thought one
road would lead me to another, but it ended up taking me on some pretty

A few notes on the car- Stock all around, 1.3L and 5 speed, and crappy
little half-worn 155/80/13 tires that are NOT made for dirt (These:

Junkyard Car: 1989 Ford Festiva L
Such a shame that this is in the junkyard. Some parts are hard to find for
these though unlike my Geo Metro that I owned. This car had 93,000 miles on
Ive always liked cars that are different or that you don't see too many
around anymore. These festivas fall in to that category. Surprisingly there
is a cult following with them, with a decent sized tuner community.
