  • It's a festivous world we live in

    I've noticed that when I go out driving I see anywhere from 2-4 Festiva's every time! Mostly just L's, but a couple nice GL's too. I saw a really nice aqua blue GL today with some aftermarket rims, with an older lady driving it. Then last week at the theatre I saw a red GL - dirty, but still in pretty good condition.

    Maybe it's just that I notice them a lot more, but it seems like a lot more people are driving them. There's only one person I've seen driving one that's around my age(19), which I haven't seen him driving around in a while. He drove a white, beat up L which I could never forget because the antenna was broken, but still dangling.

    What about you guys? Notice an increase in Festy sightings?

          For me it's the other way around; I used to see a red L for sale, plus a blue one and a burgundy one, but I don't se them anymore...I feel like I have the only Festiva in town now...
          The left lane? Are you crazy!!! I never drive in the left lane...It's full of freaks driving the wrong way and charging right at you!!!

            I think they are coming out of the woodwork around here. Used to be I'd see the same 3 or 4 everyday. Now I am seeing more like 10 or 12, some beaters, a few really nice ones. None for sale, tho.

                  There was a list on the Yahoo mailing list that had production numbers, not sure if is still there or not. But I see a blue one quite often and once in a while a silver one.

                      I love driving through the Ford dealer here , it has been here for a long time .

                      As I pull through , I see salesmen point and come to the window and usually get a laugh.

                        I pulled through a ford lot in freshtiva this summer and two salemen followed me in their golf cart. They couldnt catch me though.

                          Probalbly too many....I could just imagine some Ford Executive saying 'we cann't have any of that'....followed by a slew of butt kissing managers fighting to put their foot out to to be shot at.

                            its rare i see another festiva around me, now and then a see a couple of them in bad shape. one time i saw one at the walmart with a scoop on it, but he was gone when i came out. never seen him again. maybe he was smart and moved away. i have seen two in missouri, i wont say where as freshtiva seems to be a hoarder they are both purple. one beater, one not bad. next time ill leave a note.
