ESCORT.........Who the h*** fixes up an Escort?

I've done my 91 Escort GT twice in the last five years, only because we've hit four deer with it. The insurance company totalled it the second time, and I bought it back for $100, repaired it myself, and pocketed a $600 profit. The last two hits were minor, so I'm driving it as is. If it really got banged again, I would junk it because the underframe is rotting. In the meantime, I'm squeezing every last dime of value out of it. It's got 173,000 miles, runs smooth, and burns no oil.
