The long-lasting Escort

This was the scene early one morning at Walgreen's - two little white Escorts, side by side. One is mine, the other, well, it's around, but I don't have any idea whom it belongs to.
My Escort is beat up and getting a little rusty. It's 11 years old, and the odometer just rolled past 190,000 miles.
But it still gets me where I want to go. It still starts with one turn of the key. It still gets decent gas mileage.
They don't make them any more.
