well i work on the buggers so.....
the last escort is generally known as the mk6/7, depend on how you veiw the prevous mk's.
there were 2 mk5's the first one which had the smaller square rear lights and then the mk5b which had the revised rear lights.
because of this little change many people didn't regard it as a new model.
who cares anyway, fords are shite. if they were any good, i'd be out of a job.
always looking for those bigger bunches of bananas!
