About “Festevil”

Vehicle Highlights

Introduced for 1988, this diminutive Korean-built front-drive hatchback weighs just over 1700 pounds. Three trim levels were offered: L, L Plus, and LX.The Festiva's 1.3-liter 4-cylinder engine switched from carburetion to fuel injection in 1989-90. For '90, a 5-speed manual transmission was standard and a 3-speed automatic optional. Festivas got a fresh grille and taillamps for 1990, and motorized front shoulder belts replaced manual belts. Rear shoulder belts became standard.

Year to Year Changes

1991 Ford Festiva: A streamlined lineup retained the Festiva L but deleted the L Plus and LX models, combining them into a new GL trim level.
1992 Ford Festiva: Power steering disappeared as an option after '91, so all subsequent Festivas have manual steering. The fancier GL gained aluminum wheels and an available Sport Option package.
1993 Ford Festiva: Unchanged for their final season, Festivas left the Ford lineup after 1993, replaced by a Ford Aspire.

About “Straman Convertible CRX”

I bought this car from someone who was days away from sending it to the scrap pile. It was sitting under some tarps, on the side of their house for 11 years. I was told that it had a cracked head, no keys, and no paperwork. This person bought this car and never transfered the title into his name because the cylinder head cracked shortly after he got it.He said that he didn't have the money to fix it and then lost interest in it. Can you believe it only 310 of these cars supposedly ever made and he lost interest in it! Wow! The project is coming along nicely.It is #73 0f ???. I had some keys made, gutted and replaced the interior and seats,had a new top made,then bought some rims and tires for it.Pretty much kept it stock.
Oh...and guess what folks...The head was never cracked.The only problem was the radiator was split at the seems. He probably should have gotten a second opinion...
