About “Sporty”

1999 Ford Escort ZX2

My Dad bought this car when he wreck his truck in the snow about 5 years ago. We got his truck fixed and the car just sat around only drove a little bit until I could drive it, about two years later. Has about 60,000 miles on it.

About “BLACK DIAMOND”

I purchased this car used from Carmax in 1999 because I needed room for a carseat and "the Raven" didn't allow for that. It has only 60,000 miles on it. This car is clean inside and out with the exception of the hood needing to be repainted(many stone chips). The best time for Black Diamond in the 1/8 mile is 10.44 seconds at 74.9 mph. The best time in the 1/4 mile is 14.8 at 96 mph.
