Ford Escort Mk2 RS2000

OK. OK. If one car did sum up the Boy Racer category in the late 70’s, then it has to be Ford’s RS2000, based on the ever so popular Escort MK2. With it’s distinctive “droop-snoot” it stood out from most other cars in its class.

Teenage boys all over the country dreamt of owning one. Whilst a few eventually did, by the time the rest of us grew old enough to drive, the remaining RS2000’s had usually been wrapped around trees.
