Well when statements are in the context of [MyCar] they just refer to your
instance of [FordEscort].

[MyCar] --isa--> [FordEscort]
[     ] --ist-->
   {
   [TheBody] ----colour----> "Red"
   [TheEngine] --capacity--> "1600"
   [TheEngine] --needs---->[repair]
    :
   (etc.)
   }

What's wrong with that?
