YAK Car Pic of the Day

'87 Ford Escort Combi Estate, "Doctor Who"

And here, from a recently-watched episode of Doctor Who, we have a 1987 Ford Escort Combi Estate, better known to us Yanks as a station wagon. It’s from the episode where companion Rose Tyler and The Doctor (Doctor number nine if you’re keeping track) go back in time to the day her Dad is killed by a hit-and-run driver just seconds after parking the Escort. She decides to save him, and of course, all sorts of mayhem ensues. British Ford Escorts weren’t much more exciting than the American version.
