I'm undecided. Not being much of a Ford man I'm conscious of possible prejudice.
It is absolutely, without doubt one of the most iconic rally cars of all time. That has to be a bit cool. But Escorts were everywhere, and they still are in classic rallying - which is a bit uncool. And it's a Ford, of course. It's stylistically challenged. No surprise the boxy shape is less aerodynamic than a MkI.
Still, it is a bit of a working class hero and you know you can have fun in one.
Just about sneaks into cool.
Nostalgia isn't what it used to be.
