What if....

... Kia were to reintroduce the Pride for 2020?

Top Gear Philippines recently posted an article on just that subject. After sharing the article to the Ford Festiva community one member decided to take it a step further.

From the Top Gear Philippines article

Considering that the Kia Pride, Mazda 121DA and Ford Festiva are essentially the same car with different trim it wasn't too much of a stretch to reimagine the Kia as a 2020 Ford Festiva!

Community support

With the econoboxes of the 80's and 90's getting on in years it's great to see members of the community reaching out to support its members. One example is Ben Rogers and his store121 Apparel.
One of many designs in the 121 Apparel store
His initial offerings featured the Festiva, Mazda 121 and Kia Pride. He included other vehicles that were in some way connected to the Festiva/121/Pride trio such as the Mazda 323 family, the Capri XR2 of the time, and Ford Escort GT. The response has been so positive he was encouraged to include quite a number of other marques of the same era. Follow the link above to see his latest offerings!

If you know of anyone supporting their car community in a similar fashion let us know in the comments below. We'd love to hear from you!
