Re: Looking back: 1983 Ford Escort GT Promo
My father had a new red 1984 Mercury Lynx (Escort twin) 3-door with diesel engine supplied by Mazda. The mileage was amazing. We calculated about 75mpg when we drove all the way from Dutchess County, NY to Frederick, MD for a family wedding back in 1984. And didn't the glow plugs heat up in something like 3 seconds for easy starting?
