Getting owned by my tempo, or by a caravan?

Caravan

I have yet to see a riced out Caravan so obviously no ricers see potential in it being a performance vehicle.

I've seen Performance Metros,Escorts,Paseos,Accents,early 80'* Civics, Trackers anything car. Never a minivan.

Isnt there a turbo caravan that does 15'*, I think a guy on this forum has his in the 14'*.

Whoa I stand corrected

There are no Tempos on that page. Some older escorts though. Whats the difference?

i think the tempo was designed to be a compact, and efficient family car. it is still considered compact, but is on the bigger side of compact, where as the escort was strictly lets save gas in a car with just 2 people. tempo also was considered to be a "sporty" car.


basically, it bigger engine, bigger body, better tranny, the first ford car to have independant rear suspension, the second to be FWD.

In what twisted world was the Tempo ever considered to be "sporty"? I want to avoid that world at all costs. I have to vote Caravan though. I hate minivans.

I have seen video of a minivan doing the 1/4 mile and it was fast, I think it was in the 13'* or so.

trick is not to get owned by EITHER, lmfao
